School Trustees' Association tire trus- tees of School District No. 1 (Fernie) recently empowered its salary negotiations commit- tee and secrcrory treasurer E. T. Chambers' to meet for the purpose of having the School Disirict accredited as an Employer Organizat i o n under terms of the Labor Kclations Act. The school districts of Lady- smith. .Nanaimo. Qualicum arid A1 b c r n i have successfully sought accreditation as employ- er groups. The District school board is also planning to object to water rates the District of Sparwood charges to schools in the area. With school construction un- der way at Sparwood, the board is concerned over the rates which were reported to be per month at the Sec- ondary School and S97.50 per month at the Elementary School. The rates are charged on a fee per room basis rather than the number of taps. Fernie Secondary School pays 515 per month and Isa- bella Dickcn School based on a per-tap charge. Sparwood principal, Harry Peebles told the board that Spanvocd water charges are higher than Fernie's because the district is still paying for installation of its water lines. Water fees per house in Spar- wood are S7.50 a month he said. Fernie trustees said they pay ?2.45 per month per house. The school board recently confirmed the appointment of Jane Johnston to a teaching position at Jaffray School.

The board also confirmed the appointment Mrs. Maxine Spence at Elkford School and the appointment of Marian Halko as a teachers' aide at Sparwood Elementary- Secondary School. D.
