Daily News (Newspaper) - August 16, 1990, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania Page e THE DAILY MEWS Huntingdon Saxton Mount Union Orbisonia Pa Thursday August 16 1990 SHC students reaching out for challenges Southern Huntingdon Superinten dent Harrjf King is pleased with the number of high school students taking advantage of the districts more flexible scheduling The last school year was the first that the district promoted scheduling that all o ws students to t ake classes out of the traditional of classes they need to graduate Previously says King students in the same field of study academic business vocational etc would all take the same classes leaving some teens unchallenged in high school and unprepared to make career changes later on For example a vocational technical student might decide to go to college but not be able to pass the entrance requirements or handle a col lege workload Now says King votech students can andare taking courses such as chemistry algebra II and geometry which better1 prepares them for an unpredictable future Hes also happy to see that more students are doubling up in subjects more than one science or math course at the same time By providing more situations in which students are pushed academical ly students learn more have the oppor tunity to bypass introductory college courses and have the knowledge and fortitude to stay in school They also get a tas te i if hardwonsuccess and says King Success breeds success Freeing students from rigid class tracks is part of an overall push by the district to encourage students to con tinue their education after high school whether that be at a college university Junior college trade school or nursing school The point says King is to give the students the skills ami confidence they need to go wherever they want even if thats straight into the job market r King says that the district isnt focus ing its attention just on the students who are already motivated to try new things He notes that students at the junior high level must take classes in computer lit eracy and introductory courses in French and Spanish to coax them to later take related courses The district is also trying something new to strengthen some academically shakey students Two English classes one for ninth and 10th graders and the other for 11 th and been created to help those students who just squeaked by into the next subject level Rather than promote those students into classes where they are likely to fail the district is putting ihem with teachers who can give them the extra attention they need i Theprice of theiihcreased flexibility for students is a timeconsuming and at times frustrating scheduling process for the superintendent and principal and a greater strainon the schools teaching staff and limited facilities Nevertheless if the resources were available King would like to increase the number of courses both in the tradi tional subjects social science English math and physical science and in the PHOTOS BY JAY SHUCK NEW ROOF ON SOUTHERN GYM Workers from American Roofing of Altoona unspread blankets of rubber on the gymnasium roof at the Southern Huntingdon County High School The new

Erica looks as if the staff and facilities are stretched to the limit Short of space One limitation the district will have to deal with immediately is a shortage of space in its elementary schools The superintendent remarked at the July board meeting that at three of the four elementary schools more kindergarten s tudents wil 1 be coming in this year than there are sixth graders preparing to move on Its hot a problem now because the kindergarten kids are divided into morning and afternoon ses sions but when they move into first grade there wont be enough class rooms for everyone The school board will have to d ec id e whether to have larger classes or to expand facilities Shope Matthew Shope Elizabeth Sin gleton Jessica L Smith Jessica M Smith Chasity Snair Room 213 Mrs Melissa Speck
