Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20- THE LETHBRIDGE April Trustees want to know more about early childhood service society li look the public school board about 45 minutes to realize lhat it didn't know enough about the Lethbndge Early Childhood Si-mops Society to decide hether to co-operate with it The trustees referred discussion of the 10 recommendations included in a position paper on early childhood education in Lethbndge to a closed session that followed their regular meeting Tuesday The Early" Childhood Services Society of Lethbndge i eceivod legal status in March and is expected to hold a public meeting May 1 to solicit support The major function of the societ> will be to co-ordinate early childhood services, including kindergarten education, in Lethbndge.

In the past years our v.ages have run from a to S700 last year." he told the counU council. The S2.000 advance will be used to repay volunteer firefighters who recently bought a 1967 three-ton truck with a 1 500-gallon tank at a farm auction it will be used to follow the tiie engine to county fires. The advance, said Coun Ed Piltman. 'Can't hurt us a bit I think it is perfectly all right His motion was passed The firelighters don't spend their they pool the monev to buy equipment.

But it also recommended the school board not support the ECS society if it attempted to hold administrative or monetary control over programs established and operated bv other organizations. The position paper suggests participation in early childhood programs should not be compulsory for children and that children needing such a program should be given the opportunity to enrol in one A Herald survey of local kindergartens and prospective students in the kindergarten- age group earlier this year indicated that about 550 children eligible for government grants to attend kindergarten would not be able to do so unless more programs were started in Lethbridge by next fall. The public school administrators recommended that the school board establish and operate pre-school programs in co-operation with other community agencies in areas of the city where the need is evident. It was also suggested the public school board establish and operate high cost programs, such as those designed for children with learning difficulties. The position paper was not quite so co-operative with assisting the ECS society with services to preschool programs other than those operated by the school board. It recommended that public school personnel services "not be made available except to students registered in programs for which the school district is responsible When the ECS planning committee in Lethbridge began organizing, it intended to persuade local organizations such as the school board to pool resources in an effort to bring available services to all preschool children in Lethbridge Trustees expressed concern Tuesday that their support for the ECS society at this time mav be premature because they were uncertain of the type of controls the society mav attempt to obtain over programming and the linancial grants for preschool education issued by the department of education. However, the ECS planning committee said in February it had no intention of creating a dictatorship organization in the city. Individuals or groups in the city who wish to operate outside the jurisdiction of the society would be able to do so and obtain provincial funds providing they comply with government regulations The society has representation from all the local kindergartens in the city, parent groups and social service agencies. In line with government regulations that must be met lo qualify for provincial grants, the society and the governing group of each kindergarten is controlled by parents Now is the time to consider Air Conditioning while PRE-SEASON PRICES are (till in effect Installed by Charlton Hill LTD. 1262-2nd Ave. S.

If they change the conditions on the licence to match our original application to allow us three flights a day and our own schedule, we'll lly it whether CP Air is there or he said. But. Mr Ross added, he has had no results from discussions last week in Ottawa with the CTC concerning changing conditions on the licence giving Time Air permission for a twice daily flight, one in the morning1 and one in the afternoon. CP Air said in its announcement that it will operate three flights a day north from Edmonton to Grande Prairie Commenting on that announcement, Mr. Ross said it was interesting that CP Air's opposition to his application in November was mainly on the grounds that it was supplying adequate service. "Now five months later there seems to be a need for an additional 214 seats a day." Power line ruling expected in month A decision on Calgary Power's application to build a high-voltage power line through the Crowsnest Pass should be made within a month, the vice chairman of the Energy Resources Conservation Board said today. The board has been studying the application, which involves connection of the Calgary Power and B.C. Hydro systems at Phillips Pass, north of Highway 3 on the provincial boundary, since January Vern Miilard told The Herald the board has narrowed down it's decision to several of the routes proposed by the company and residents in the Pass. Calgary Power had suggested running the 240 kilo- volt line through the most populated areas of the Pass.

School board briefs Attitude toward semesters varies The man hired to conduct an evaluation study of the divided school year in the Lethbridge public school system has found student and teacher attitudes toward the semester system vary with their philosophy of education. Dan Horovatin, in making a SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 BERGMAN'S Floor Coverings SALES AND INSTALLATIONS By DON BERGMAN Open Thurtdiy Evtnlng till 9 p.m. PHONE 328-0372 2716 12th Ave. S. preliminary report to the public school board Tuesday, says people who believe the objective of schools is to provide students with credit for the material they have studied, favor the semester system. People who believe education is a continual life long process don't think it is necessary to divide the school year, he adds. The major complaint Mr. Horovatin received from students and teachers about the semester system was that it compresses courses into too short a time period. The final report on the divided school year, expected by the end of 1974, will assess its effect on student learning, teacher methods and school programs.

The final evaluation report is to assist the school boards in deciding whether to continue with the semester system and provide an information base from which the trustees can examine alternative school years. A Gilbert Paterson School teacher was nominated by the trustees Tuesday to participate in a teaching exchange program with Australia for the 1975 calendar year. Doug Poile must now compete with nominees from 17 other school jurisdictions in the province for the opportunity to participate in the international teaching exchange fellowship program. If Mr. Poile is selected, he will assume the teaching duties of an Australian teacher -in 1975 and an Australian teacher will take over his duties at Gilbert Paterson School. There is no additional cost to the local school board. A special program for Lethbridge Collegiate Institute students who are unable to function in academic school work at the level of their potential was approved Tuesday by the public school board. The school will now apply for a department of education grant that will be equivalent to the salaries of four special education teachers. The program provides students with learning disabilities the opportunity to be rehabilitated to study at the level of their potential by placing them with special resource teachers. A letter will be sent to the minister of education expressing Lethbridge public school board opposition to proposed legislation that would force school boards in the province to authorize any increases in their honoraria by a bylaw rather than by resolution. The proposed changes lo Bill 28 have already received first and second readings in the Alberta legislature. Trustee Doug McPherson said he would agree "100 per cent" with the proposed changes to the bill if they applied to all elected officials instead of just to school trustees. The trustees were unanimous in their decision to oppose the proposed legislation. WARNER FOUNDATION SEEKING HIGHER LEVY WARNER (Staff) The Warner County Foundation, operator of the Ridge View Lodge at Raymond, wants to increase its requisition and feels the county must raise the special foundation levy of .6 of a mill to one mill. But Reeve J H. Otto Tuesday asked Coun. Murray Holt of Raymond to get the foundation to come up with a definite figure. The special levy of .6 of a mill on of assessment realized for the foundation last year, about two-thirds of what the lodge's total requisition was. Coun. Holt said the foundation needs twice as much money. He said the foundation had a deficit of last year. He said the rates at the lodge have been increased from to for a double room and to for a single room "but are still too low." "This is only the second increase allowed since the home was built 13 years said Coun. Holt. "I wish they would requisition for a set amount and then we could work it back to the mill said Reeve Otto. County hikes recreation tax two mills (Staff) recreation areas surrounding Warner and Milk River will be levied an additional two mills on the 1974 tax bill, the Warner County council decided Tuesday. Mayor Jack Ashmore of Warner at first simply asked the county council to hike the recreation levy at its own discretion. But after discussion he came right out and asked for a two-mill hike on the special area that stretches from Milk River to Coutts. County Secretary Ken Duncan said the increase could be resolved by a bylaw which would be advertised Last year the county levied 2 58 mills tor general recreation on of assessment to raise and 3.58 mills on of assessment to raise for special recreation The two-mill hike on the Milk River area will bring it to 4.5 mills. Milk River Town Secretary George Robinson said the town has just passed a money bylaw to finance its recreation complex. He said will be issued today to the Milk River Agricultural Society to renovate and remodel the indoor skating rink into a civic centre building Money won't change hands the society will be given worth of building materials. The town secretary said a two-mill hike would be "a great help to us" because the town is faced with a bill for more than for landscaping around the new pool. This is just one item Milk River is also spending to upgrade its water system with the work commencing this fall The old water system is "played out" and the town must also fill the new swimming pool. A new reservoir, one new main and two other new lines will be installed. Mayor Ashmore reviewed recreation spending at Warner since the ice arena opened in the spring of 1972. It cost to build and of this was left as a debt. The debt has been reduced to Milk River had turned a grant over to the village in aid of the arena. Said Mayor Ashmore: "We hope our commitment to Milk River of will be met through a new five-year program of the department of youth, culture and recreation whereby yearly can be expected. The 1973 portion has been applied for." He said the payments, as they come through, will go to Milk River until the loan is amortized Mayor Ashmore said the village also owes to Ottawa. It found it had spent a total of in winter works money but hadn't qual- ified for that much. The mayor said the arena operated for five months last year and tallied a deficit of about paid by the village. Operations were extended to six months this past winter and because of increased costs, particularly the cost of using more power, the deficit will be about "We intend to mount a fund- raising effort and we hope to Lnni (8 (Yin with isl INDIVIDUAL LESSONS IT THE HOUR A.B.C. DRIVING ACADEMY PHONE 327-1241 We pick you up In City I pick up quite a share of this deficit With the rising costs of labor and power we would certainly appreciate a trend upwards in the recreation tax on rural Warner. And we would match this in the village." said the mayor The village levies four mills at present. Coutts and New Dayton representatives on the Warner county southern region recreation board have made it clear they don't want to pay any additional mills for recreation facilities at Milk River. Masinasin is somewhat more favorable to the idea. Reeve J. H. Otto said he doesn't want the county split up in different areas with diflerent mill rates because it makes too much administrative work. Mayor Ashmore and Coun. Ed Pittman agreed money spent on recreational facilities is money well invested "There is no doubt about it. this recreation program is pulling our communities said Mayor Ashmore. "We can have things that they have in the cities in each of our communities if we try to adhere to the over-all master plan because it was well thought out He said local citizens wanted the arena at Warner so badly they told him, "Get this plant in Even if we have to stand outside to dress and undress, get this plant in." This summer, said Mayor Ashmore. instead of children going north to swim they will be going a short distance south to Milk River for that recreation. The Milk River town secretary said: "We are really thinking regional New baseball diamonds are being installed at the school so everyone can use them. "We have another three years at least before we have our program said Mr Robinson Said Coun. Murray Holt' "Well, it is money well spent.
