District Six To Drop Support of Head Start By JIM C R A I G Tribune Staff Writer School District Six has decided lo no longer support Ihc Mend nrcn.

District find the Weld Coiinly portunily Agency (WCOA). ·Six Op- Dlslricl Six has operated a Hend Slnrt program since Us inception In 19G!. Presently there nrc 133 students, f i v e t e a c h e r s , three leather trainees, 10 aides, one mivse, one social worker, a curriculum coordinator and a director involved in the program. The district's program accommodates more than CO per cent of the students in Weld County enrolled in Head Start, According to Dr. Don Cook, Head Start physician and chairman of the local Accountability Committee, the Office of Childhood Development (OCD) issued a verbal directive for the local program lo combine all county efforts under- one administration and suggesting WCOA agency. He also US said that Ihc directive included a change of direction from child education to the total family development, Parents as Teachers He added the new policy calls for the hiring of Head Start parents to act as ttachers and supervisors with the idea that any parent could ultimately become' the program director. Cook : said Colorado law will not allow the district lo use non- certified personnel in instructional capacities. Gene Mack, WCOA director, said the directive was issued to all area programs and would affect : every program now under direction of educational administrations thoughout the stale. The directive also in- dicated that no f i n a n c i a l sup- Kirt would be given lo nny irogram that would not comply w i t h the hiring of pnrcnls. Under the current system of 'Inaneing, each local area must raise 20 per cent of the total budget supplied In Hie program y OCD. District Six now supplies nearly all of the 20 per cent by donating classrooms, transportation facilities, food, iupplies, teachers ami ml- minislrnlors. There are no cash donations from [he district. Dr. Kenneth nipple, district superintendent, said 'the district would use those resources lo mild a belter special education program for the district since here would no longer be any District Six personnel involved in cither the teaching or administration of the Head Start program, Rents Space Me also said the district was c u r r e n t l y renting outside facilities for ' special needs programs while Head Start was occupying classroom space. He noted that renting facilities for a program that the district had no control over seemed to be very hard lo j u s t i f y . Dr. Cook pointed out that a report done by the regional office noted that the program administered by the district had only two areas that needed improvement as opposed to four pages of improvement areas for the Weld County Opportunity Agency. He said he felt the quality of the program would suffer with no certified personnel available and that he could see no reason for wanting to lower the district program to the level of the county program. "Our concern is for the education of the child," said Dr. Ripple, "but these new changes for career employment are nol Maintenance Men End 1-Day Walkout After a one-day walkout, the m a i n t e n a n c e personnel o f School District Six have agreed to return to their jobs using the old work schedule. The decision came afier an afternoon meeting wiht Dr. Kenneth Ripple, district superintendent, at which major differences were settled. The walkout was a result of misunderstanding over a new policy that called for all maintenance work to be done at night. The new schedule was to lake effect on April 24 but was postponed at a special meeting of the Board of Education until Monday. The maintenance personnel then staged the walkout since they had not been able to meet with the superintendent lo express their complaints over the new policy. Point Out Falacy In the meeting the ma tenance personnel pointed out the falacy of a tola! night shift noting that a majority of the assignments had lo be done during regular class time. They also opposed Die use of a daytime skeleton crew since they felt they were already at that level. Dr. Kenneth Ripple, district superintendent, said at no lime was Iho new directive meant to involve all personnel nor the performance of all duties. lie added there were many diAies hat could be best performec at night without disrupting class icssions. The maintenance personne onslslent with Iho philosophies f education. We have simply cached n point of branching ff nnd we have no hard ccllngs."

It was also decided the group would he able to voice an opinion in the selection of a new director of maintenance. The maintenance, personnel added that they had tried to use the normal chain of command before contact ing board members but they felt the chain had broken and they were unable lo get action prior to the walkout.
