Minister advises hoard Divided school year decision held up By JIM WILSON Herald Edacation Writer The Lethbridge divided school year experimient, highly successful in the ^es of city students, teachers and parents, is in for some potentially rough sailing. With just 4^ mooths to go before the anticipated Aug. 24 start of the divided school year's thh-d year of operation, the public school board has received wm-d from Education Minister Robert Clark that before his department will authorize an extension to the experiment, he wUl want to study the proposal further. Second thoughts on summer project The Lethbridge public school boand Tuesday had second thou^ts concerning its direct participation in a sunumer project opening three city schools for community use this year. The community sunmier program proposal, which would also mvolve the city, the separate school board and most recreation and cultural associations in Lethbridge, will cost close to $13,000 if instituted. The board has applied to the department of education's innovative projects fimd for $3,500 in assistance, but thiis would still leave a heavy local contribution - one which trxistees were unwilling to commit until they view their 1971 budget April 6. Most trustees also questioned their specific involvement in the program beyond making schools available for open use. General agreement was voiced over trustee Dr. Bill Beckel's suggestion that public school district program offerings in the summer "should emsrge from a stated educational need rather than our searching for something to insert into the system because we feel we should find something." Trustees commented that often the educational em-ichment programs designed by the district are found to be unwanted by potential sttidents when the time comes. They decided to wait both settlement of their budget pic-tiu-e and some statement of need by students or other groups before proceeding further. The parks and recreation board will, as in the past two years, offer a number of youth activities programs throughout the summer in co-operation with local youth and recreation agencies. seminar Hot seat tonight at centre Peter Cresswell, director of the Napi Friendship Association of Pincher Creek will moderate a special program in the Hot Seat series in the Lethbridge Friendship Centre Wednesday at 8 p.m. The program will feature a panel with audience participation on the theme Black Minority in Canada.

OUR OSCAR Following discussion of several reports on the local divided year, the public arA separate school boards decided to request a three-year extension of the system, in order to conduct further evaluations to ascertain the direct benefits to students and families. Mr. Clark's reply in no way refuses to grant the extension, but seems to be a delaying tactic to make way for receipt by the department of education of a special report it commissioned some time ago regarding utilization of school facilities in Alberta. The report, expected within months, will likely deal in detail with the various ways aU Alberta school districts could reformulate their school years. Possibilities include the Lethbridge system, %vith two semesters divided at Christmias; a ti-imester system, using the schools 12 months of the year; or a quarter system, as recommended by the Alberta Teachers' Association, which would use three of the four quarters in a year, with the fourth as summer holidays until the time could be effectively used as a fourth study period. Dr. 0. P. Larson, superintendent of public schools, read the letter to pid)lic school trustees Tuesday, and suggested Mr. Clark had some concern about having various Alberta school systems using ccmiplete-ly different school years. The letter also suggested that since Alberta's three universities had had to grant Lethbridge schools permission to set and evaluate their own Grade 12 evaminations to meet university entrance reqmre-ments, the universities would have to be consulted again if the Lethbridge experiment were to be continued for three more years. Trustee Dr. Bill Beckel, also vice - president of the University of Lethbridge, suggested contact in this regard should be made with the Alberta universities co-ordinating council, which has already discussed accreditation of high schools for' examination and entrance requirement purposes. He said the council has al- ready approved some requests for special circumstances m-volving the U of L and the University of Calgary. As to the University of Alberta: "There's been no need so far, but judging from past performance, I wouldn't want to predict the U of A's reaction to anything at all." Dr. Larson will discuss the situation with separate school district officials, and submission wUl likely be made to the universities' council meeting in Edmonton March! 30. Two principals leaving Lethbridge public schools lost two principals in one fell swoop Tuesday evening as the resignations of two school ad-mmisfcrators, bO'th for amicable reasons, were accepted by public school trustees.
