ark schools agree on meeting

A special meeting to hear the opinions of district teachers on intra-district transfer problems was approved Thursday by the Clark County School District Trustees.
Trustee Janet Sobel suggested the board’s personnel subcommittee meet in an open hearing to hear “problems, concerns add confusions that teachers have had with transfer policies.”
The subcommittee is comprised of Sobel and Trustees Virginia Brooks Brewster and Herman Van Betten.
“I want the personnel
subcommittee to hear and evaluate any problems that teachers have had,” said Sobel.
“I think this is a very difficult problem, because most of the problems arise when we have population shifts that necessitate transfers,” said Van Betten, “but I think it is a good idea to have a meeting.”
The meeting, not yet definitely scheduled, takes place next week in the board room of the Education Center.
In other board action, the trustees approved the 1977- 78 Title I program at a cost of $1,909,729.
Elise Johnson, Title I director, explained the total
ftinds come from three sources—federal Title I funding, Impact Aid Funds and State Title I Migrant funding.
The program, federally mandated in 1965, provides reading and math instruction to low-achieving students.
Johnson said the program serves more than 3,600 students in Clark County. Funds were increased $400,000 from the current year.
Brewster warned Johnson: “I will be watching this program,” saying she feels more schools on the west side town need the program.
One new school, Burkholder
Junior High School in Henderson, has been added to the list of schools with Title I units.
“I would like to see Title I in the kindergarten before the junior high schools,” said Brewster.
The trustees also voted to increase the salary for substitute teachers for 1977-78 and again next year.
Substitutes who now earn $32.10 per day will earn $35.30 next year and $37.05 the following year.
If a substitute replaces a teacher more than 10 days, he will earn $47 per day next year and $43.05 the following year.

Vicious Circle See by the papers the Mabel
Hoggard School at 950 North Tonopah
will remain an elementary school, instead
of being changed into a sixth grade
center, as was previously ordered bp the
Clark County School District Board of
Trustees last March.
The order to convert it to a sixth grade
center was in accord with the district’s
federal court-approved integration plan
where elementary students from West
Las Vegas bused to other areas of town,
and sixth grade students bused to
various centers in West Las Vegas.
This to give equal educational opportunity.
The former criterioh for racial mix
was 50 per cent. Now the federal court
order was changed to permit 60 per
cent minority in a school before it is to
be considered outside the legal male.
The president of the HoggaiqParent-
Teacher Association claims the federal
judge merely changed the magic
number from 50 per cent to 60 per cent,
and the school would eventually face a
similar situation, when the percentage
of black students exceeds 60 per cent —
which is pretty much of a certainty^
What will happen then? Will there be
a further softening of percentage, or will
Hoggard school then become a sixth
Despite the fact the federal government
through its judiciary is still finding
many school districts in violation concerning
integrated education, there
seems to be slippage in the push for it.
The neighborhood school concept is a
great issue for politicians — especially
when they are running for offices which
have nothing to do with any educational
There have been sporadic efforts for a
constitutional amendment to bar busing

Just a few days ago, there was a news

They are concerned with poor

themselves to “an anlysis of the

That would be fine — if it could work.
But that’s pretty much contrary to what
exists now and what existed before the

The pure solution to the school
problem is integrated housing and
neighborhood schools. But to have integrated
housing, the minorities must
have equal employment opportunity. To
have that, they require equal
educational opportunity — which
resolves itself into an endless circle.
Despite all of its faults, to give up now
on the effort for integrated education
would be a step backward.

Equal Rights Amendment so men can quench the flames in the ladies’ room.
There hasn’t been much said — just a .brief newstory — but the announcement that the Nevada Test Site is under consideration for the location of a plant to store radioactive waste from the country’s nuclear power plants doesn't thrill me a bit.
My suggestion would be to try something under the ice-packs of the Arctic sea.
When Clark County Democrats put on a fund raising campaign recently, gag pictures of candidates were used for publicity purposes.
One of the pictures showed county commission candidate Thalia Dondero in her kitchen canning tomatoes while preparing a speech.
Recently, wallcing her precinct in search of votes, she found the key issue among women concerns the fact that their fruits and vegetables are spoiling due to inferior lids manufactured by a leading firm.
Thalia promised to consult with the Consumer’s League and register a complaint.
That’s a campaign promise she’ll keep.
When nice things happen to friends it’s almost like they’ve happened to you.
( ,. Our congratulations to Mabel
\ Hoggard, whose complete dedication to X. education has been rewarded by having
a school named after her. The Bonanza school has been designated as Mabel Hoggard school.
A nicer thing couldn’t happen to a nicer person.
Ernie Becker can give a gal something to think about.
Listening to him expound on one of his favorite subjects — scholarships for UNLV athletes — we became aware of an often overlooked benefit. As Ernie explains, the scholarship program not only aids those athletes with exceptional abilities, who might go on to become exciting stars in sports; but it gives many others an opportunity for an education that might otherwise not be available to them.
All football players are not 0. J. Simpsons, nor are basketball players Bill Waltons, but it takes a full team of players to win. Each one of those players, who are receiving scholarships, might be in school only because of that scholarship.
Actually Ernie is so sincere about this Whole tiring that it makes me wonder how anyone could possibly stay away from the Rebel’s Club Barbecue at the Convention Center Sept. 25.
Of course it’s strictly for the guys, so that lets us women out. But the price is right — five dollars — for hot dogs and beer — introductions to all the players — and a fun evening. All the money goes to scholarships.
Your contribution might be the one that gives some young guy a chance for an education, and brings athletic honors to UNLV.
