The orientation course in the Sacramento Senior High School has developed withint the school. In making a study of this orientation course, it seems important to make a study of some representative schools in the west and middle west sections of our country. In order to determine that schools where orientation was included in the course of study, I wrote to Professor James H. Corson, Dean of Personnel and Professor of Education in charge of courses of counseling and guidance at the College of the Pacific in Stockton, Califonria. I also wrote to Dr. E. A. Krug, Associate Professor of Education at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. These professors responded promptly, giving lists of schools with notable programs of orientation. Dean Corson's list was mainly of schools in the west, and Dr. Krug's list mentioned some schools in the middle west. To these schools were sent letters of inquiry concerning their orientation set-up and its functioning. The response given by these schools in sending information is very much appreciated. Many local questions have been answered as a result of this study. It is also hoped that when some of the valuable features suggested in the responses are incorporated in our Sacramento course, many students in the future may receive may receive benefit fromits findings.
