Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdrnsrfov, March 14, 1973 Public school board Extra-curricular pay debated By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Wrilcr Public school trustees Tues- day agreed teachers should re- ceive extra pay for special ac- tivities outside the but balked at a suggestion Ural money be accounted for by the teachers. Superintendent Dr. 0. P. Lar- son said funds for extra-curric- ular activities can be provided to school principals for distri- bution to deserving teachers. The scale suggested by Dr. Larson includes: Senior high schools, plus S1.50 per student; junior high, plus ?1 per pupil; elemen- tary, per pupil in Grades 4 to 6; Dorothy Gooder School and elementary schools with primary grades only, total grant. Dr. Larson said each princi- pal should notify the board by May 1 each year the amounts to be paid each teacher enti- tled to extra-curricular pay. "T h e notification shall also indicate the activity supervised by each lie said. Trustee Reg Turner said a system wliich lists where and public money is being spent is net practical or sen- sible. There may be'seyeral activi- ties involved. That is the busi- ness of Hie (school) staff. I've always been against extra-cur- ricular pay. "The board should allocate oney per student to take care of activities outside the curri- culum. It's entirely up to that staff and that principal what they do with Mr. Turner said. He said insisting that teach- ers account for extra dollars is 'not a very professional thing at all." Trustee Carl Johnson said no financial boost is given teach- ers for additional work during the school day work which he said could be considered ex- tra-curricular. "f don't see where tlvere's any recompense for work bcypnc a student catch up on his he said. Board chairman Dr. i Dong McPherson said that kind of money is not appreciated by sincere educators. "Good teachers give way beyond what is considered part of a school day in their con- cern for their students. They do it because they want lo do Dr. McPherson said. Trustee Doug Card said teachers should not be asked to state where and how board fluids are being spent: "Why is there the necessity of account- ing for tliis to the sscretary- he said. Trustees agreed to table their proposal xuitil principals are asked if they object lo a new ono which would pro- vide the same funds but with- out any reference to auricular" activity.

The Environment Conserva- tion Authority hearings are in- tended to hear public views on existing and potential use of the foothills and mountain re- gions of Alberta extending from the American border to the Peace River country. ECA chairman Dr. Waller Trost will he in Lethbridge .fo srnvilc nn.Jhe hear- ings at the meeting of the Old- man River Regional Planning Commission at Lethbridge Com' munity College. According to ORRPC plan- ners the hearings began as an inquiry into strip roiling arrd sulphur extraction in certain mountain areas and snow-balled into a total look at the prov- ince's mountain region as a natural resource. Existing and potential uses run the gamut from strip-min- ing at ojie extreme to total conservation at the other, and include tourism, recreation pro- jects, urban development, for- est industry, agriculture, oil ancl gas development, wild- life am! fishery manaueimnt, hydroelectric power develop- ments, and domestic water supplies. The provincial government is deeply committed to these hearings, says OHRPC execu- tive director Lawrence Smith. Out of them will hopefully arrive a meaningful govern- ment policy towards compre- hensive land use in the area, he said. The ORRPC is preparing a preliminary report, as are authorities in four other moun- tain districts designated by the ECA for hearings, on what is there now, what might be there and possible land use conflicts, Mr. Smith added. The commission will present its point of view on what it thinks should happen when the hearings begin in The mountain region is di- vided into the Oldman River basin, Bow River basin, North Saskatchewan River Basin, Smoky River basin and Atha- basca River basin with hear- ings to be held in each of theso areas starting with those here. The ECA also received sub- mission up to the end of Feb- ruary on specific proposals by private and commercial inter- ests for recreation and tourist developments in the area mountains. Preliminary regional plan topic at Thursday meeting Details on the schedule for I preliminary regional plan con- sideration by the 01 d m a n River Regional Planning Com- mission will be discussed at this month's commission meet- ing. Lawrence Smith, executive director of the ORRPC, said the preliminary plan, which lies been in the preparation process for about the past two years, will be finished by mid- April and will be the topic for the annual workshop to be held April 30. The plan suggests main poli- cies and land use recommenda- tions for all property within the commission boundaries. The commission covers square miles between the B.C. border and a point east of Taber from north of Nanton to the U.S. border. The workshop Vr'ill be to con- sider the various aspects of the plan and will feature Munid- ial Affairs Minister Dave Elussell as a guest speaker. 3ther prominent speakers mil be named later.
