schools on a per pupil basis the chairman of the Lethbridge separate school board s Jonn Boras mam cor- porations are under the owneislup of rnanv shareholders in the province or the ownership in several cases originates from outside the province Since- these corporations don t usualh declare their schoci tax support their tax assessment is automatical allocated to the public school boards he explained in an interview court of revision in Ed- monton last month ruled that under the School Act a. com pam must its school to the public school svstem n u has not declared Catholic ownership As a result the Edmonton separate schools lost an es- timated S2 5 million in cor porate tax assessments to the Edmonton public schools There is no indication of U of L level of operation to continue The University of Lethbndge will make even' effort to continue its present level of excellence in program offerings in spite of fears provincial government grants mav not allow the un- iversity to meet expenditures during the next three years At a special meeting the L of L board of governors af- firmed its intention to deplov all available fiscal resources to maintain the U of L in its present level of operation A motion to this effect will be forwarded to Advanced Education Minister James Foster The board of governors position affirms that the un- iversitv must relv on the department to provide ad ditional money to carry out the U of L s educational objec- tives how the ruling affect Lethbndge separate schools However since Lethbndge has nowhere near the number of corporations as Edmonton ihe financial affpot on the local separate svstem woula be minute if similar court ac uon taken locally Mr Boras savs he would be prepared to accept a lesser amount per pupil of the corporation school tax Liisessrnent because he doesn t expect that a senarate school should receive ihe same portion of the educa- tion tax dollar as a svstem that is designed to serve all he public If the corporation assess- Tiem was distributed on a oer basis the Alberta schools would be rweivmg a fair share of the assessment even though the auohc schools would be a greater oortion of the corooration assessment he suggests Roman Catholic residents must also declare 'heir seDarate school tax support or their education tax assess- ment automaticalh is allocated to the public school boara The Alberta school trustees m rheir annual meeting in November agreed to en courage the provincial government to amend the School Act so that all corpora- tion tax assessment is diviaea oetween the public ana separate school boards proportionate to the number ot students enrolled in each school svstem ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC SchwirtzBldg 222 5th SI S.
