Summary

This study reports the outcome of an initial implementation of a California law permitting mentally gifted high school students to attend a junior college part time. The program procedure is described in terms of (1) selection and enrollment, (2) discipline, (3) books, (4) matters relating to high school graduation, (5) information for parents, and (6) student activities. Of 38 one-semester courses offered to eleventh and twelfth grade students, 13 were taken by 12 students from five instructors in spring 1968. At the end of the semester, student and faculty responses indicated that: (1) all 12 students passed all courses taken, (2) they liked earning college credit while enrolled in high school, (3) college teachers favored the program, (4) college teachers should visit high schools and give information about theprogram, (5) most high school students adjusted well to college life, (6) all administrators wished the program to continue with the same careful guidelines, (7) the program should be enlarged, (8) students found the courses beneficial, (9) most believed they did as well in college courses as they did in high school courses, (10) they did not encounter major problems in the transition from high school to college work, and (11) their social contacts with other high school students continued to be as satisfactory as before they enrolled in the program. Approximately 60 students are expected in the program in Fall 1969. (RM)
