Public school board Audio-visual project fails A special project involving the use of audio-visual aides at the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute has failed to achieve its a report to be presented to public school trustees tonight says The audio-visual project was designed to assist students who were poor achievers in social studies Seventeen of the 19 students who enrolled in the project in as poor achievers in social studies were also poor achievers in social studies at the end of the school year. In their Grade 10 social studies skills rated with the lowest 20 per cent m the province The seventeen students were also in the lowest 20 per cent of Grade 10 students in the province in the reading skills When only one student of seventeen made a passing mark on the final ex- it seems to in- dicate the learning was quite superficial and easily says Jack the project's teacher. The students chosen specifically for the special project had many learning dif- ficulties such as poor reading skill and poor attendance habits and the audio-visual approach was just another academic burden in their school he said in the report.

Trustees face bill for lane If public school trustees become irate tonight over a bill for a back alley pav- ing many taxpayers will likely sympathize with them. The school board must financially support a lane- paving project in the Agnes Davidson School area even though it was contacted or to sign a peti- tion that requested the city to pave the back alley. Under a city the city will pave back lanes if at least two-thirds of the number of persons who own the land abutting the lane to be paved sign a petition in favor of the paving. The lane in the area of the Davidson School was sup- ported by a two-thirds majori- ty and now the public school system faces a bill of more than when the paving is completed. The trustees will also be told in their regular meeting tonight that they face another bill for for a similar paving job on a lane in the area north of Wilson Junior High School. The trustees were asked to support the paving project by citizens in the area of Wilson Junior High but declined to do in a September board un- til it was able to determine how many other back-lane paving bills it may be asked to financially support. Some trustees indicated that they were not prepared to support the back-alley paving project at Wilson Junior High School if it was to set a prece- for citizens in other school areas to request the same financial support.

The Community Services Advisory Committee has call- ed for all participants in summer youth programs to meet to assess a proposal put forward last month by Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute principal Ken Sauer. Mr Sauer's proposal is for a four-week summer school program that he says would not existing summer programs operated by such groups as the YMCA and YWCA Allied Arts Council and Bowman Arts Centre and the city community services department Mr Sauer suggests the which would include fine arts and modern language a band nature studies and physical recreation could initially use LCI and Catholic Central schools facilities These schools are in a central providing easy access to tennis swimming track and field the Yates the Bowman Art Centre and other he said The program would be aim- ed at the 9 to 14 age group and could be held in giving students who enroll a three-week break after and before the regular school year If the program it could be extended to other schools such as Hamilton Junior Gilbert Paterson Junior High and Winston Churchill High Mr Sauer says One advantage of the he would be to open up the schools in the summer While schools are available for community use under the joint-use agreement between the city and the school boards.
