There are no firm plans at present to introduce a modified school year in the County of 40-Mile. All groups represented on the Educational Study Committee have been seeking the opinions of their membership on this question. A questionnaire was sent out to parents. Of 450 sent out here, 162 were returned. Of these, 83 expressed favor for a system that would divide the year into two equal halves with a break at Christmas, and 78 were opposed. Of those who objected, the length of the school day and the effect on younger children, the effect on harvest help during the latter part of August, and the busing problems were of concern. School principal Yosh Kaba-yaroa outlined some possible alternatives regarding the reorganization of the school day and year which might be considered. It was felt by some parents that not enough consideration had been given to the unique situation of the rural student facing bus journeys of 50 miles each way every day. A school year divided at Christmas would enable students to transfer more easity to institutions of higher education.
