Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wodneiday, November 25, 1V70 Board approves project The Lethbridge public school board Tuesday approved es- pendiiurc of up to as Uie public school district's share of a special pilot project in budgeting it has been accepted for. The Alberta department of New policy to benefit teachers Lethbridge public school teachers will benefit from a new professional development policy approved Tuesday by the public school board. The policy was changed to take into consideration avail- ability of special training pro- grams available throughout the year, out of town conferences and seminars and similar up- grading activities. It agrees to pay half the tui- tion for approved non credit university courses throughout the year; to pay substitute teacher costs, registration fees, economy air fair or six cents per mile for private ear use where needed to attend confer- ences and workshops; and re- lated expenditures. Hie agreement applies to both teachers and administrators, aad the school board also re- serves the right to send at any time selected teachers or ad- ministrators to special courses at its own expense. Trustee Dr. Doug McPherson termed the six cents per m'le (12 cents if more than one per- son travels in the same car) as adding that "more would have been paid In 1935." However, district administra- tors pointed out that the board was offering to pay only part of the related costs particular- ly the out-of-pocket expenses in- volved.

Only 10 school districts in the province were approved for the project, from among more than 60 who applied. Dr. George Bevan, director of curriculum for ths district said the project will require that the board operate a dual sys- tem of bookkeeping for about a slx-m o n t h period beginning March 1, 1971. He said the regular system now in use will' be continued, but the PPBES system, which makes extensive use of com- puter programming, will be used in parallel with it. The PPBES system will be much more detailed and up to date than normal accounting methods, and will be able to pinpoint expenditures in each subject and for each subject in each school. This will allow school admin- istrators to plan for their fu- ture requirements, with month- to-month data provided from the computer on how much money is being spent on a course compared to the enrol- ment in it. Administrators would be able to use this information along with their knowledge of the hu- man values of the course, to establish priorities in program expenditures for the following year or semester. Mack Crumley, public school district secretary treasurer, said the ultimate intent of the project was to make certain money was being spent in the right places. He said it would also encourage use of a stan- dard accounting systom throughout the province, thus allowing comparisons to be made in budgets. PPBES funds will be taken from the million innovative projects fund established by the department of education, and will be given top priority. The 10 districts involved will communicate regularly among themselves and with the de- partment, and evaluate then- progress after three months. Computer services will likely come from Hie Lethbridge firm now handling record keeping for the school district, but if the programming proves too complex for local equip- ment, a larger computer would be used in Calgary or Edmon- ton. H the current six-month phase of the pilot project is deemed successful upon its fi- nal evaluation, twn more phases re-programming and evaluation will likely be un- dertaken, also with government support.

Our short-lived Chinook Is long gone. An extensive Arctic high pressure area which has cen- tred over Alberta is expected to bold temperatures in the south down around the zero mark for next few days. The cold system will likely be accompanied by frequent cloudy periods and snow Dia- ries. A brief blizzard, with snow and winds gusting to 34 mph dumped 1.3 inches of snow on Lethbridge Tuesday night, as the high pressure system came in contact with retreating lows. A situation of this kind usual- Arbitration chairman is named Dr. Ken Pugh has been named chairman of the arbitra- tion board to settle the contract, dispute between the Lethbridge Police Association and Uie Leth- bridge Police Commission. Dr. Pugh is the former chair- man of the Board of Industrial Relations and former deputy minister of labor. Representatives to the board were named Oct. 27 but no date has yet been set for Ihfi start of proceedings. The police commission re- jected a conciliation board re- port Sept. 30 that would have resulted in a 15.8 per cent in- crease for the 51 mtaibers of the police association. The recommendation would have raised the 5630 a month wage for a first-ciass constable to S730 a month. City policemen are still working without a 1970 contract. years atict three months of ser- vice, Mr. Atkinson retired Tuesday. Known as the railway's school teacher, Mr. Atkinson likes to point to his strong ties with the OP by jokingly stat- ing he was bom in the station in Manitou, Manitoba. "My father was the station agent he said, "and when I grew up the family just took it for granted that I'd eventually get into railroading too." Initially, however, Mr. Atkin- son didn't particularly want to follow in the family's footsteps. After public and high school education in Manitou, he de- cided he'd become a teacher, "I was able to take my nor- mal training right in the he explained, "so that by the time I was 18 I was out teaching." But after a couple of years practising Ins profession, there came a time when, one fall, young Mr.. Atkinson couldn't find himself a school. "That WES in he recalled, "and times were a little tough. I was glad to be taken on by CP as a section hand." In the years that followed, Mr. Atkinson was appointed as- sistant agent, at Climax, Sask., and agent, operator and dis- patcher on tha Lefhbridge and Medicine Hat divisions. In 1958 he was appointed as rules and safety agent, then supervisor of operating rules. In the latter capacity ho has been involved in helping write the books on railway safety j rules, and in travelling about the country teaching examining railway personnel on the rules. It was in (he course of this job he earned the name "railway teacher." A resident of Lethbridge off nnd on since 1931, Mr. Atkin- son is married and has two sons, one in the airforc.e and !hc other, following in his fath- er's footsteps, in CP Rail. A somewhat unusual coinci- dence takes place with Mr. Atkinson's retirement. His wife Muriel will lxs retiring Satur- day after 25 years service with Eaton's. "We're both involved in re- tirement festivities the same Mr. Atkinson said. "I don't suppose that happens very often." ly results in some sort of upper disturbance. With the arrival of the cold front, Tuesday's high tempera- ture of 45 fegrees quickly fell to around 10 degrees and then slowly tapered down to the overnight low of one degree be- low zero. Highways throughout south- ern Alberta were .reported _ to be in good driving condition this morning by Lethbridge RCMP, with wheel lanes bare in most cases. Side streets in Lethbridge are icy and treach- erous, but again streets with heavy traffic have hare wheel lanes. Today's high temperature should bo near five degrees above zero, dropping to about 10 below overnight. Winds will be from the northwest 20 mph and gusting. Blowing snow and drifting may be experienced on country access roads.
