During this 1969-70 academic year, there were three classes enrolled in the program: CDD III, admitted in September 1967, CDD IV, admitted in September 1968, and CDD V, admitted in September 1969. Included in this report are: (1) a description of CDD V; (2) a socioeconomic description of the fifth population of CDD students; (3) attendance and achievement records of all classes from 1969-1970; (4) entrance into CDD from high school, and subsequent college progress of CDD I students; (5) curriculum improvement efforts; (6) summaries of adjunct studies; and, (7) general summary of the CDD program. In addition, "Appendix A" contains a report of a curriculum conference of the CDD held at Hunter College April, 1970; "Appendix B" is an end of the year report of CDD for the period 1969-1970.
