t CREELEY (Cote.) TRIBUNE W*4.,MirehJ, 1171 Denver school board has 72 days to submit desegregation plan DENVER ( U P D - A federal court judge Tuesday gave the city board of education 12 additional days to submit a complete plan for desegregating the district's schools. District Superintendent Louis Kishkunas said the extension would put his staff "in good shape" in preparing details and costs of two plans which currently are being studied. A final plan must now be presented to U.S. District Judge William E. Doyle by March 17. Doyle took no action on a request from the Congress of Hispanic Educators that the deadline for parts of the plan dealing with five predominantly Hispano schools be extended until March 26. Under the current desegregation plan, elementary grade students are bused between predominantly Anglo schools and 'predominantly minority schools to achieve racial balance on a half-day basis. One proposed plan would involve the reorganization of elemental)- schools into primary and intermediate schools with three grades each. The other proposed plan would extend the current half-time pairing program on a full-time basis. Both plans would call for busing about 20 per cent more students than now are being transported by the district.
