Page in. Shopping Days until Christmas last of three stories by Wally Kennedy education writer on the surface the combining of Joplin a two High schools would appear to be the most significant element of a school realignment plan that was adopted by the r-8 Board of education in november. To be implemented in 1985, the plan also Calls for equally dramatic changes at the elementary level. Although four to possibly six schools could be closed school officials believe the plan will not Compromise Joplin a longstanding support of the a a neighbourhood school concept. A we want to keep As Many of these schools open As we can a said Floyd Leonard an assistant superintendent. A i personally do not like to see schools closed because that Means there Are fewer classrooms a classrooms that could be used for educational purposes. A under this plan we Are maintaining most of our neighbourhood schools and building a new one to meet future growth in the Southwest part of the District. All of our facilities will be upgraded to better match our in 1978, a compaction plan that called for the closing of 10 elementary schools and the increased busing of elementary students was presented to the Board. Critics said that plan would virtually destroy the concept of neighbourhood schools in Joplin. Increased busing proved not to be the answer the plan was shelved. A slight increase in the busing of Elena entry students could occur under the new plan although it is doubtful according to Sam Bell director of the districts transportation program. A because of state eligibility guidelines some students will be bused who have never before been bused. Conversely some students will lose the service a Bell said. A it will depend a lot on How the Boundary lines for the schools Are redrawn. A it also depends a lot on How you look at busing. Most parents appreciate having their children bused to and from school because to them it is a it is at the elementary level that most All of the building costs associated with realignment will be incurred. And it is at this level that school officials believe some of the greatest educational gains will be achieved. The building costs would be financed by a Bond Issue that is not expected to increase the tax Levy according to or. James Shoemake superintendent. The Bond Issue will be subject to voter approval. The District Shoemake said is building a financial Cushion to offset the construction costs by accumulating Money in the districts debt service fund. Money for the fund is generated by an 18-cent share of the local tax Levy. School officials project the fund will have a balance of Between $250,000 to $300,000 by 1985 a possibly More. That balance plus returns on investments and the Sale of four pieces of surplus property owned by the District will constitute the Cushion Shoemake said. The costs according to Leonard will Stem from a the construction of a comprehensive elementary school in the Southwest part of the City to replace Alcott and Lafayette schools which will be closed. Alcott was built in 1928 and Lafayette was built in 1904. The oldest portion of Lafayette will be demolished. The newer portion will be used for other purposes. Alcott will not be demolished. Long Range plans May Call for its use As a Center for preschool students Leonard said. A the construction of four additional classrooms at Stapleton school and six at Jefferson school. The rooms Are needed because of the effects of realignment and anticipated growth in the areas of the schools. The oldest portion of Jefferson built in 1906, will be demolished and replaced with the new classrooms. At Stapleton two leased Mobile units will be replaced by the new classrooms. A the establishment of kindergartens and Media centers in almost every Grade school. This will be achieved by the placement of All 6th Grade and 7th Grade students in two Middle schools which Are now North and South Junior High schools. By moving the 6th Grade class to the Middle schools Leonard said Between 25 and 27 classrooms throughout the District will be freed for use As Media centers Art and music rooms and kindergartens. The move also will result in the closing of Oakland kindergarten. Longfellow kindergarten already has been closed. Students in the 6th Grade i Eonard said May Benefit More from the realignment than any other group. A it represents a tremendous broadening of educational opportunities for them at a time when they Are ready for More individualized projects. They will have Access to a gymnasium theater shop classes and science labs for the first Leonard said the Media centers will be rooms in which elementary students will have Access to a Library and an expanded offering of science Art computer and audio visual materials. Long Range plans he said Call for the placement of a computer terminal in each school for student use. A the Media centers will help us develop and broaden our curriculum. In time our Media centers will become a definite advantage. It is a promising development a Leonard said.
