The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not courses of study and occupational guidance provided at Columbia Falls High School were sufficient to meet the needs of the students who were enrolled at Columbia Falls High School. The survey was concerned with the following: 1. What educational levels were completed by the former students. 2. What were the former students doing vocationally or educationally. 3. Additional education the former students obtained since leaving Columbia Falls High School. 4. What types of employment were prevalent among the former students. 5. Did teachers or guidance personnel influence choice of occupation. 6. Did the former students receive adequate educational and vocational guidance while attending Columbia Falls High School. 7. Were the former students adequately prepared for initial employment upon leaving Columbia Falls High School. 8. Did the former students feel that occupational information, if made available, was beneficial or would have been beneficial before seeking employment. 9. Which high school courses were most beneficial for job employability. 10. Were there suggestions for curriculum revision which the former students felt would have been helpful for students who have not completed their high school education at Columbia Falls High School. The prime motivating factor behind this study has been the lack of data previously obtained in reaction to these questions.
