Iron Springs., Turin citizens meet Parents fear loss of two schools IRON SPRINGS (HNS) Lively and at times heated dis- cussion took place recently when 65 residents from the Iron Springs and Turin districts held a how meeting to discuss problems facing the two groups. It is caused by a declining enrolment in the schools at Iron Springs and Turin. The meeting was headed by Howard B. Haney and county officials attend ing included Reeve R. Papworth; JEAN SWIHART photo. Thank you Fort Mccleod Centennial Singers' pianist Louise Collar receives a corsage and gift from Miss Dianne Charlton, chcir member.

Burge; school mittee chairman J. Nicol; and assistant county of secretary Bob Grant. Parents residing on the bor- der of the Eureka Municipality, whose children now attend school at Turin, were deeply concerned that closure of the Turin School might result in their children being transfer- red to Enchant and Vauxhall which would incur much more travelling on school vans for the pupils. People from the Iron Springs area expressed concern over the consequences of the pos- sible closure of the Huntsville School as it contains the only auditorium in the community. It is the only place which can be used for meetings and com- munity functions. It was pointed out that dur- iiiT the past year the Hunts- ville School was used by the people of the district on 263 occasions. Superintendent Burge said de- clining enrolments and project- ed declining enrolments are reaching the point where it might be feasible to combine the two schools. This would pro- vide better teaching service. Another alternative might be to keep each school open with a total staff of five, one of whom would assist in the language arts program, and also main- tain the two libraries. School committee chair man Nicol said it would be ad- vantageous to combine the two schools as this would provide an ideal ratio of approximately 20 pupils per teacher. The necessity of maintaining a balanced budget was also stressed. Statistics provided by Mr. Grant revealed that, of the debentures originally taken out on Barrhill School and the Huntsviile School addition, 085 remains to be paid and this will not be completed until 1978. Turin School has three deben- tures involving various projects which total and one of these debentures will run until 1977. There are certain fixed costs such as caretaking and repairs which remain basically con- stant. It was also noted that 67 per cent of the total school bud- get goes for teachers' salaries. Reeve Papworth said the ne- cessity of staff reductions made matters more urgent. He felt that there were many aspects to consider. The general consensus was that they were in favor of amal- gamation but also critical is the necessity of retaining the Huntsville building, or a por- tion of it, for community use. It was decided that a com- mittee of three from Turin and Iron Springs should be formed and should meet with the Coun- ty of Lethbridge 26 school com- mittee to assist in a final deci- sion. Named to the Iron Springs committee were Cyril Noble, Mrs. H. (Ann) Haney, Mrs. C. (Gloria) Miller, with Fletcher Baskin as an alternate member. Members of Turin's committee will be named.

The subcommittee was also authorized to attempt to reach agreement with the board of trustees en guidelines for local bargaining similar to those adopted by the teachers and trustees of the Lethbridge pub- lic schools. Two of the more important provisions of the guidelines arc agreement by both teachers and trustees that negotiations j will bs carried out by local peo- i pic. with no outsiders being in- j volved, and agreement by both teachers and trustees to replace their negotiators if an impasse develops in negotiations. Under provisions similar to these (hc> teachers and trustees were able to con- clude a collective agreement at the local level saving the teachers, the trustees, and the ratepayers time and money.
