Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
This follow-up study surveyed the 34 students who finished their programs at the Center for Arts and Sciences (CAS), a secondary enrichment program in Saginaw, Michigan, for gifted and talented students in grades 6 through 12, in June 1990. Responses were received from nine students. Analysis indicated that all respondents were in school, college, or a training program; eight respondents were attending Michigan institutions; students were majoring in a variety of fields; most respondents planned to pursue additional degrees; a third of respondents reported no serious educational problems; and students reported a variety of long term professional goals. Most respondents agreed that the CAS program had provided good preparation for college and a creative/motivational environment. Appendices include the questionnaire and a tabulation of responses to each question. Additional material includes program guides for the CAS for the years 1993-94 and 1994-95. The guides address program philosophy; student eligibility; and areas of specialization available at CAS including dance, global studies, language arts, math/science, theatre, visual arts, and voice/keyboard. The program's counseling service, living arts program, and media center are also described. Recommended course equivalencies and a summary of recent program highlights complete the guides. (DB)
