"Endless public debate has killed some pretty good reports in recent he told the Tuesday night board meeting. "We might get somewhere with this one if we take action." Mr. Turner submitted a list ot 16 items which he feels the hoard should take action on as soon as possible, upon recom- mendation of the superinten- dent. He said it the board is going to profit by the report, it must decide what changes are nec- essary and then convince the public things are moving in the right direction. In other board business, trustees got a first-hand look at the impact and value of tele- vision in the schools. Trustee Doug Card had video- taped proceedings of a June convention in Calgary and it was shown to board members last night to give them a bet- ter understanding of how tele- vision can be put to use in the schools. Street race costs Douglas Goodrich, 16, of 429 Dieppe Blvd. was fined and had his driver's licence suspended for two months when he pleaded guilty Tuesday in provincial judge's court to a charge of racing.

Education Minister Lou Hynd- man approved the request, with four conditions: the school system must establish a fair way of evalu- ating student achievement on Grade 12 departmental sub- jects; the evaluations must be made by qualified teachers and approved by the superinten- dent; the examination results must be submitted to the de- partment of education; the students must be ad- vised of their results so they may write the departmentals if they want to. "If you agree to these condi- tions, this letter may be con- sidered approval for your school system to opt out of Grade 12 departmental examin- said Mr. Ilyndman. Dr. 0, P. Larson, superinten- dent of the Lethbridge public school system, said the condi- tions are reasonable and "we will have no trouble meeting them." He said the wheels are now in motion and local evaluation will be in force for the Christ- mas examinations. "We will proceed Immediate- y and our staff will be notified :hat they are now on their said Dr. Larson. The Lethbridge separate school board has also been granted approval to return to local evaluation. "I expect it will be In throughout the province in tha next year or said Bob Kimmitt, superintendent of the separate school system. "We have experience here good schools and good teachers there is no reason to have external examinations any long- er." The boards had the right of local evaluation withdrawn last fall, shortly alter the new gov- ernment was formed.

Groenen Photo Mayor Anderson enthusiastic fee gets nod The cost of hiring a consul- _ant caused some concern for jethbridgc public school board trustees at the regular board meeting Tuesday night. The issue arose when it was .earned that the board will lave to pay a consultant or a project in which the total cost, including the consult- ant's fee will be only Trustee Reg Turner said such costs could keep the board from embarking on worthwhile proj ects because of the cost. they (the consult- ants) are worth it, but it puts it out of our he said. Tempers became a bit frayed around the edges during the public school board meeting Tuesday night. Trustee Reg Turner collided with three other board mem- bers over a policy which re- stricts individual schools from raising money to finance proj- ects they deem worthwhile, such as bus trips, special activ- ities or other education-orient- ed projects not in the regular curriculum. At present, the school board The changing face of the city provides financing for some special activities. Mr. Turner argues that the schools should be able to fi- nance their own activities be- cause the board Is not always able to provide the money, thereby blocking some activit- ies that could be financed by the students who want to take part. The main reason for the school board policy is that some children may not be able to take part in such activites because of- personal financial reasons and it is felt this could create some problems in the schools. Mr. Turner maintained that the principals could use available funds from the school to make certain that no one is denied participation in any activity be- cause of a lack of money. He described the present pol- icy as "ridiculous" and asked another look at it lo determine if it could be changed. This was agreed to, but not before other trustees made their views clear. Dr. Doug MacPherson said the school board would be shun- ning its responsibility to tha taxpayer by approving such a system. "I feel strongly that trustees have to accept the responsibil- ity for spending the taxpayers he said. Dr. McPher- son added that some schools have built up cash reserves "of several thousand dollars for programs of the principal and his associates." Trustees Doug Card and Bill Brown said the change suggest- ed by Mr. Turner would amount to nothing more than an additional tax on parents.
