Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta School buses coming By ItOSS GIBB Herald News Service TABER Taber School Division No. 6 will purchase six 1971 model school buses for delivery by the Easter holiday, the first week-end in April Tenders will be invited as soon as the board's transportation committee establishes the seating capacities required. Early delivery of the transportation units was found desirable at the board meeting Wednesday, hi order to obtain their use for two to three months before the summer hob'-ri a y s. Normally replacement buses are delivered1 during July or August. The board will allocate in its 1971 budget for the purchase. There will be no trade-in of old buses, but the buses taken out of service will be sold outright oil an individual basis. The board approved a mileage rate increase for privately owned buses serving the Division, from 30 cents to 32 cents per mile travelled. The increase, effective January .1971, will cost the Division an estimated per year. Approval was given for schools in the division to order immediately supplies up to a value of half of the 1970 bud-getted figures. This will allow the acquirement of some necessary equipment, at the same time allowing the board some lattitude for deviations in setting up the 1971 budget. The allotment areas include library, sports, science supplies, industrial arts, tome economics, business education, tool repair, testing, instructional materials, and ea lly IHIH.S OI1U1 Herald News Service TABEK The rich don't gc i icher in Taber School Divisio No. 6.

The Board was advised b; thp Southern Alberta School Authorities Association (SASAA) that this is a negoti able point and is now being considered in salary negolia tiojis with the Alberta Teachers Association.
