The school division ended the 1970 calendar year with a surplus of $18,350.

Many of the existing policies, relating to schools, will be dealt with at local institutes where students, teachers, par- ents and trustees are represented. The superintendent and secretary-treasurer explained two pilot projects which are now under way in the school division. One is a communications model for agencies involved in detecting learning difficulties in elementary school children and the other is a program accounting system. WITH U OF L The school division is involved with the University of Lethbridge in a study aimed at developing a communication model which will assist agencies in the area to increase their effectiveness in meeting the learning needs of primary school children. A random sample of Grades 1, 2 and 3 -school children is to be tested for physical, neurological, mental and intellectual development. Studies will be followed through to look at what happens to a child with a specific disability, such as undeveloped language. The program accounting system lays the foundation for a program budgeting system by standardizing input data and facilitating meaningful analysis at the local and provincial levels. It identifies activities in terms of their resource requirements and expected and realized outcomes. The two projects will cost in excess of $48,000, with 50 per cent being financed under the Innovation Projects Program of the department of education.
