Abstract: Data were evaluated to give the researcher sound bases for recommendations to the Board of Directors of the Governor's School of North Carolina and the Division of Exceptional Children of the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction so that they can make reasoned decisions on continuing or revising the present Governor's School program and the policies, standards, or organization of the Governor's School of North Carolina. This study attempted to determine the accomplishments (e.g., honors, awards, occupations, etc.) of former Governor's School students, how these students perceive the effects of their participation in the Governor's School, what changes they would recommend for the Governor's School, and the impact that graduates have had on the• state of North Carolina since attending the Governor's School. This summative evaluation utilized a mail survey of 1,200 former Governor's School students selected so as to represent the total population .of former Governor's School students from 1963 through 1981. In addition to surveying the former students of. the Governor's School, the superintendents of the public schools of North Carolina were surveyed to determine their perceptions of, and their suggestions for changes in the Governor's School of North Carolina.
