The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is a real need for a secretarial office practice course at Woodstock Community High School. The questionnaire survey method was used in this study. The questionnaire was sent to 61 graduates who had completed the Secretarial or Office Practice course from the classes of 1961 through 1969. Fifty-one (83.6 percent) completed replies were returned. The same questionnaire was sent to 27 employers. Twelve (44.4 percent) questionnaires were returned by employers. Of these only five employers attempted to complete the questionnaire. The majority of respondents felt that the courses needed to obtain and to keep a job were typewriting and secretarial office practice. The two classifications, clerical and secretarial-stenographic, were listed by the majority as the type of job they were holding. The various activities carried out in the Secretarial Office Practice course were satisfactorily covered so that the graduates were able to handle their jobs efficiently.
