College Visitation to Small, Rural High Schools. (Perspectives, Data and Trends in "3-A" Kansas High Schools)
McCune, Allen
Current information on Kansas colleges' high school visitation programs was gathered from high school counselors in 64 Kansas "3-A" schools (enrollment from 124 to 188 in grades 10-12) and 50 Kansas college representatives. A 10-item questionnaire was sent to the high school counselors and a 3-item questionnaire to college directors of admissions; responses were received from 47 high schools (73%) and 37 admissions officers (74%). All data is reported up to March 1, 1984. Total average number of college and other visits to the high schools during the 1983-84 academic year was 21, with a high of 27 and a low of 10. Average graduating class size was 45. Percentage of seniors planning to attend a 4-year school ranged from 63% to 15%; percentage planning to attend a 2-year school ranged from 55% to 8%. Percentage of seniors planning to enter the work force directly after graduation ranged from 51% to 6%. Counselors noted trends away from 4-year programs and toward 2-year and short programs, vocational courses, and schools closer to home, and also reported overwhelming approval of the visits by administrators and students. Counselors offered suggestions for improvement of visitation programs, and college admissions officers offered suggestions for counselors. (MH)
