After the letter had been discussed locally, a study was ordered and the report made public by Administrative Assistant Robert C. White.

Here is what he found out:

In all 16 students failed to return to the Senior High School after the summer recess. Of this number 12 were boys and four were girls, he said, and of the dozen boys who failed to enroll for the autumn semester, six had enlisted in one or another of the armed services.

At Junior High School eight children failed to enroll in the fall, Mr. White said. He explained that seven of the eight drop-outs at JHS were boys.

As a comparison figures, OHS Principal Charles H. Belden set the percentage of Oneonta young people who went on to higher institutions of education in 1963 at 65 percent of the graduates.
