Enrollment data were collected from the district administration for the five reported years starting with the 1968-69 school year. The data for the 1973-74 school year were collected at the school level. Collection at the school level should provide a more representative data bank for the academic programs. All the science offerings were grouped into the following seven categories: biology, chemistry, earth science, enrichment science, general science, physical science, and physics. It is interesting to note that in the 1968-69 data collection only 19 different courses were reported. In the succeeding years, 25, 56, 71, 74, and 96 were reported respectively. In 1973-74 students were offered over five times as many courses as they were in 1968-69.
