With Enrollment Bullard-Havens to Change From 4 to 3-Year Program Bullard-Havens Regional Voca- tional school this year will begin changing from a four-year to a three-year program to handle the increasing number of applicants for training, Norman Eichner, school director, disclosed today. For the school year that starts Sept. 9, Bullard-Havens will have an enrollment of students. No girls were accepted this year in the freshman class. Last'year there were about 40 girls regis- tered. The eventual program will establish a three-year school with grades 10 through 12, eliminating all ninth gride students. The program is In line with a policy adopted by the State Board of Education several years ago supporting three-year programs, but allowing local directors to rnake the change when local con- ditions warrant. The ninth grade program in- volves exploratory studies in vari- ous fields. Students concentrate on a particular area during the last three years. .By eliminating the ninth grade, the school can expand classes for the remaining three grades, grad- uating larger classes.
