Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta I nE L. Public school private operator sheared of ECS appraisal9 By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer The public school board and private operators involved in early childhood services are said one disgruntled ECS organizer after a public meeting Wednesday night removed the teeth from a proposed constitution for a city-wide early childhood services umbrella group. The who asked not to be claimed after the first annual meeting of the Lethbridge Early Childhood Services Society that the school board and private operators did not want the effectiveness of their programs to be judged by an outside the ECS. The attended by about 60 passed a resolution amending the constitution of the newly- organized group to remove wide powers given the executive council of the society. Under the draft the council would have been able to set standards for ECS operations in the city and would have had some say over programming and distribution of government grants. But under pressure from the Lethbridge public school which said it would not join the organization unless the changes were the constitution was amended setting forth only broad guidelines for the council's operation. Dorothy a school board said the changes give the school system and private operators enough flexibility to work in good faith on the council. And Fred director of pupil personnel services for the public warned the meeting that if policing powers were the council would have nothing to police that many organizations now providing services to pre- school children would refuse to join the society. The society will act as a co- ordinating body for a wide range of early childhood services and will be an umbrella agency for existing and new programs run by separate organizations. Under provincial government and guidelines set by the parents will be involved at all levels of ECS programs. Peter community co-ordinator for the Centre for Personal and Community said after the meeting that just because services are provided is no guarantee they are effective. There is strong he that ECS programs in Lethbridge will not be as good as they could have been had the council been given the power to set standards. And while in theory parents control ECS programs through advisory Mr. O'Donnell said some parent groups are not effective in setting high standards. Although accountability is built into ECS the level of accountability will not be as he said. In other the meeting elected four persons to serve as members-at-large on the executive which will meet May 15 to start the job of co-ordinating services and determining the need for services not offered now. The members elected are Adrienhe Jean Freda North and Eleanor Lind.
