The state department of public instruction of Indiana has sent to trustees and principals of schools copies of the newly adopted rules and regulations anent the high school classifications in the state. The school authorities are asked to study them closely and be guided accordingly. The classification which is given for 1921-1922 is a basis for a later classification to begin September 1, next, and the state board insists that the 1921-1922 classification should encourage many local communities to give their best efforts to the support of their schools to raise them to higher standards of efficiency. Called "Honor High Schools." Commissioned high schools, of the ! first class, are those commissioned : high schools that have a school term of nine months and meet the roquire-! ments of the state board of education in the training of teachers an 1 course of Ftudy, where the school Unn for ' the grades in connec tion is nine 'months in length. They shall h; ; known as "Honor High Schools." Second class high schools arc those commissioned in which the tvachcis meet the minimum require raciit s in training, for which the commissions are issued on a continuous basis, where the school term for the high school and for the elementary grades in connection is eight months in length. Third class commissioned hifh schools include all cornmi.-sior.ed schools which do not meet the quali- fieatiors for either of the first and second classes, Extra Work for Diploma. njch schools which do not meet the 'requirements for commissioned classi- fixation may be accredited for one. two, three or four years of hk,h school work, if in the opinion of the inspector the schools are meeting the require- ments which have been established f or accredited high schools, provided: That hereafter all certified high i schools shall be known as high schools ; credits in one semester in a commis- Certified High School Disappears. If special effort to meet the requirements is made, many high schools of ; the third class should go into the sec- ond class next year, the state board holds. Under the rules now in ;!,.t. the certified high school has disappeared, according to this classification and will be known hereafter as a high school accredited for four years work. Township trustees and school boards whose high schools are housed in buildings, which have been condemned by the state board of health, are warned that the state board of education will not reissue a commission to these schools until the necessary steps have been taken to provide a building approved by the state health board as being sanitary and by the state board of education as being adequate to accommodate the commissioned high school. High school pupils who study high school subjects in normal schools during the summer, or who are taught by private teachers, shall be required to take the state examination for high school credit to establish credits which may be counted toward graduation from the high school. Rules Following Failure For making credit in subjects in which he has previously failed, a student shall be required to spend at least twenty hours in recitation and twenty hours in study. For advance credit, the student shall be required to spend at least forty hours in recitation and an equal amount in study. In both cases the student shall pursue study under direction of a tutor who has had at least seventy-two weeks approved training or has had successful experience in the teaching! of the (Continued on Pag Two) frem Williams the entire length 0l,, , .u. .v..
