CIVIC HOLIDAY NOBLEFORD (Special) Mayor Arnold Lubbers has de clared Monday, Aug. 6, a civic holiday. two, Foremost 23.5, Manyber- ries 8.5, ROsedale and Winni- fred Hutterite colonies one each. In addition the county will have a full-time guidance coun- sellor, Miss Eileen Jones, and reading consultant, Allan Doig. This makes a total county teaching staff of 72.5, as op- posed to 75 for the 1972-73 school year. SEVERAL FACTORS The staffing formula takes into consideration a number of factors. It recognizes that in Grades 1 and 2 the enrolment per class should be lower than in the higher grades. Small schools, because they are forced to have combined grades, should have a lower teacher-pupil ratio than larger schools. All schools, other than the one and two-room schools, should have one teacher who is also part-time librarian. The librarian should have some school time in which to encourage students and teach- ers to use the resources of the library. GUIDANCE The three senior high schools in the county should have some guidance counsellor time, other than the principal. This person would dwell en personal guid- ance whfle the county guidance counsellor concentrates on vo- cational guidance. Industrial arts and home eco- nomics classes are usually small, ranging in size from eight to 20 students. This is ne- cessary because of the nature of the instruction and equip- ment available. One extra teacher for each of these sub- jects is provided at schools of- fering these courses. Regional districts doing job says deputy minister Smith NATAL (HNS) Ken Smith, deputy minister of municipal affairs for B.C., made a return visit recently to a Regional District of East Kootenay board meeting. "I attended your inaugural meeting. At the tune, there were many doubts about the fu- ture of regional government in he said. Regional districts are now well and firmly established. People are most happy with them, particularly this one. There used to be a great deal of argument about whether or not we were creating a new level of government. "I no long- er argue. At least it is a very useful instrument to provide services not being provided by anyone Smith told RDEK directors. He suggested that the NDP government will pay more at- tention to urban affairs than did the last one, although there is a danger, with so many Vancou- ver members, that Vancouver will get more than its due of attention. The sorest points about the land commission act have been more or less resolved, he said, "But I speak as an administra- tor, not a politician." "In Bill Lane (the newly named chief land commission- er) municipalities will certain-' ly have a man in he commented. Lane was city so- licitor in Richmond for many years before his appointment.
