A director district plan featuring (inc district located entirely on the city’s west side was approved by the Cedar It a p i <1 s Community school board Monday night.

T Ii e districting scheme adopted was oik* of six possibilities devised for the board by John Liitachwager, University of Iowa professor hired as a consultant to the board.
Last fall, the board agreed to set up four director districts and three at-large directorships. All voters in the school district will vote tor all board members. The four districts are residency requirements for candidates only.
Under the plan, district one would include the following east-side precincts: All Saints school, Monroe, Erskine, Grant Wood, Jane Boyd Community House, Immaculate

District two would include the following (all west-side PT e c i n c t s ) : Wilson, Van B u r e n , Hoover, Coolidge, Cleveland, Lincoln, Riverside Roundhouse, Roosevelt, Ellis YMCA, and Town hall in Covington.
District three would include west-side precincts: Taft, Madison, Harrison and Kennedy, which is half on each side of the river. Pierce, Nixon, Hiawatha city hall, Palo school, and city hall in Robins are the east-side precincts.
District four would include east-side precincts: Polk, Garfield, Arthur, Franklin, Washington, Coe college, Harding school, and Kenwood school, plus city hall precinct which is partially on the west side.
School district attorneys are studying the questions of whether all board members must stand for re-election and when the vote on the director district plan must be held.
Board Votes To Donate Buchanan School to City
The Cedar Rapids Community school board Monday night agreed to give Buchanan school to the city recreation department.
The board unanimously instructed staff members to prepare a legal document for deeding the school, 2000 Mt. Vernon road SE, to the city for use by the recreation commission.
In return, Board Secretary Otto Wiedersberg secured a pledge from parks Commissioner Stan Reinis to cooperate in providing additional parking area around Tyler school and Bender pool in the 1200 block of Seventh street SE.
Members of the recreation commission said activities have outgrown converted fire stations housing Ambroz center and Riverside recreation center. Both will be ♦closed. Activities at the Riverside center will be moved to the Riverside Roundhouse.
Board President Norman Lipsky told the group, “We’re
delighted at the opportunity to have good use made of Buchanan school. We hate to see it boarded up and unused.”
The building will house an
art gallery, art library, glaze room, pot shop, weaving and macrame, teen lounge, stage and drama department, game room, senior citizens room and meeting rooms.
Last fall, the school district deeded 5.5 acres of land adjacent to Cherry Hill park to the city for a swimming pool site.
