Financps- i (Continued from pngc 2) providing such leave of nDsencn Is for civic or religious purposes. It appeared that this rule actually has been followed by the board for some time and last night's action gave it legal status. Gain Pay Boost Forty-nine members of the leaching corps have earned a change in contract salary, it was reported by Superintendent Wesley T. Wooley, who recommended the changes be approved. The board concurred in the recommendation. It was explained by Mr. Wooley that the changes could not be granted until definite Information had been received from the proper sources certifying that the teachers had taken the additional training to merit the change. It was also explained that some of the salary figures announced last night include payment to some of the teachers for extra-curricular work. The increases are retroactive to the start of the present school year. Acting on a request, contained in a letter from Arnold W. Salisbury, Galesburg High School prin cipal, the board granted pcrmis sion to include the adult education fund in the revolving fund of the high school. It was stated this is the first year for this particular fund. A brochure on the adult education program was distributed and Mr. Wooley reported 150 adults have enrolled for evening courses. Also distributed to the directors were two bulletins from the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, covering various phases of this organiza- owncr of property adjacent to Bateman School which the board desires to acquire. Property under consideration, most of it south of jthe present school site, is located between Maple avenue and Clark street, a strip half way through the block between Clark street and Academy street and a plot at Mary street and Clark street. Ac- lion by the board was delayed until the attorney has an opportunity to investiagc the cost of a title guarantee policy covering these properties. The price quoted by the owner is $8,500. 1 The annual convention of the State School Board Association will be held Oct. 22, 23 and 24 at the Sherman Hotel in Chicago, it was announced by President Whitman.

Mr. Wooley stated Galesburg High School has been on this association's approved list sincp 1910 and also mentioned that the school is and has been accredited by the state of Illinois. Attention was called to a re port, prepared and submitted by Ilarry Garst, principal of Church ill Junior High School and chairman of the district's safety committee. Mr. Garst has been chairman of this committee a number of years and steady improvement in the situation has developed under this committee, it was reported. Analyzes Enrollment Presenting an enrollment analysis, Mr. Wooley staled not more than two or three classes in the elementary schools are running over 40 students and a few of the high school classes exceed this figure. Discussing the projected increase in enrollment in the next few years, Mr. Wooley told the TRIDERITE SHOE has earned the confidence of Doctors All LEATHER SOLES So many in the medical profession believe in Stride Rites' skilled construction, quality materials and excellent fit • . . and in the protection these fine shoes offer young growing feet. Ask your doctor . . . you'll probably find he'll recommend them, too. Most doctors who know Stride Rites do. FASHION B0OTERY e/4 Cast Walk Street board members and guests there is no space available to handle this increase. There are two alternatives in solving the problem, he staled. One is to convert the gymnasiums in the elementary buildings into class rooms and the other is to operate on a half-time basis for a certain number of stu dents from year to year. It was staled at a previous meeting that certain recreational facilities for students are required and use of! the gyms would eliminate these facilities. Another alternative, described as unsatisfactory, would be to operate the schools on a year-around basis. A building program would require three or four months to. de velop and then two years to complete, the superintendent pointed out. If inaugurated this year, the program could not be completed until 1956 or 1957, it was staled by Mr. Wooley, who favored the employment of an architect at this; time. The situation is growing worse each year, he stated. In connection with this discus sion, it was also urged that the facts on the enrollment situation and the need for more space be made known to the public. President Whitman said board members would be willing to appear [ before various organizations to present the picture. The board president pointed out that certain emergency measures which have been taken are not a solution but were adopted to handle the situa tion as best it could be done by the board. Board members received bound copies of three annual reports— one by Superintendent Wooley, one by Mr. Salisbury as high! school principal and' one covering i the junior high schools. Files Objections The Burlington Railroad has filed objection to $5,123 in taxes levied against the company for building fund purposes in the district, it was reported by Joseph | E. West, board attorney. The ob jection, it appears, is based on levy for bonds issued by District j| 104, which is now a part of District 205. Members of the board have been invited to attend, in a group, the exhibit now being held at the Community Lounge of the Y.M.C. A. under the sponsorship of the Civic Art League. This exhibit in eludes photographs, architect drawings, plans and models of a number of outstanding school buildings throughout the United States. Director Moon called attention j to the need for adding more voting precincts in the district. After a brief dicussion, it was decided that Mr. Wooley, Mr. Read and At torney West will make a preliminary study of this situation, figure out changes necessary to revamp some of the precincts and report their findings at a later date. Consider Property The legal counsel for the board reported he had contacted the Tuesday, October 13, 1983 7 indicated they will attend this convention. OK Rules Change The board adopted a resolution providing for a change in the rules as they pertain to issuing a call for a special meeting. The change provides that the president or three members of the board • may call for a special meeting, by |written notice, delivered to the board members by mail or in person at least 48 hours before the :time of the meeting. Mr. Read reported an investigation is under way to determine the damage caused buildings in the district by the recent hail storm. He stated the board would jhave some claims to present in- jSurance companies and intimated ;the board may have some financial responsibilities as the result of damage by the hail.
