The total of new construction to take care of the increase amounts to almost S2V4 million. Planned in [he preliminary proposal ii a new elementary school for Sparwood costing million; increased indus- trial education and home eco- nomics facilities at the Spar- wood Secondary School costing million and the addition of a one-half size gymnasium at the Elkford Elementary School. The beard also authorized district superintendent of schools lo employ an additional teacher for the Elkford Ele- mentary School when it be- comes necessary. The school has now 73 students and three teachers, but 25 additonal trailer lots are soon to be available in that community which could bring the enrol- ment to a higher level. The matter of housing for teachers at Elkford was discussed by the board nnd a committee was struck lo talk to Cominco au- thorities about housing for teachers in the new communi- ty. A trailer formerly located at Sparwood was hauled lo Baynes Lake lo provide teach- erage for that school. It was replaced with a used trailer purchased for Sfi.OOO. The board decided lo set the rent on this new trailer at per month or at on a 10-month basis. The hoard received a pclilion from 21 people requesting the restoration of bus service from Elkview. Under existing policy the board is unable, with one exception, to bus students with- in the City of Kernie or within the township of Spanvood. The request was denied. A similar request was turn- ed down from two families in the vicinity of Tip Inn Mntel in Sparwood requesting bus trans- portation lor secondary school students. The lowest hid of five was accepted for a new 67-passen- ger bus. The bid at SH. without a trade was that of In- ternational Harvester Com- pany. The. retired bus is to be offered for sale by tender with a reserve bid. The board also decided lo make applica- tion for the purchase of an ad- dilional 67-passengcr bus lo re- lieve the three-run schedule on routes east of Femie. Pregnant teachers: must they resign?
