'Extend' Is Extended By Education Board ' The' Board ot Education, meeting Monday night in Roosevelt schuol authorized, continuation of Project Ettend for approximately SO youngsters in this and five other schools for the second yeaT. The program wil! be conducted by Action for Bridgeport Com-muiiily Development (ABCD). ■ The discussion fired up two further questions: whether schools lacking ADCD's services could have such a. program, and who provides the insurance coverage for such programs as Extend and the East -End Community school. A question from mothers from Maplewood schrxil about, how- to obtain a program like Extend for their children drew no ■ substantial answer.. ■ The explanation was given that-this is not a school program, but an ABCD program. If ASCII doesn't sponsor it in certain schools, the hoard would still permits to other sponsoring groups if they suorait plans, the' mothers were told. . Debate On Insurance The insurance item turned into .' the most vigorous topic of the night, with legalities argued at -length. between the lawyers and nun-lawyers on the School board. Board member Johu Larson asked if the city is insuring Project Extend, and Schools Supt. Howard Roscnstein replied it is willing to do sd. But board president Francis J. King, a JaivyeT, replied this question hasn't been settled and he'll press the city attorney's office to issue the . ruling .which was requested eaTlier. . Mrs. Anita 5. Vogel, a Republican, aimed a barb at the Democratic administration hy saving: "it's hard tn believe one in the city attorney's office can arrive at a decision on this." Seme hoard . members argued that the same ruling should apply to both Extend and to the East End Community 'school program which operates in Mc-Kinlcy school on a permit. Others said the two cases are different. The Community school item became somewhat more ' urgent ,„i..-.„ ti>i-- ^hnnl's sookesman, Paul Mendes, advised the School board the Community school's nirr.mliMr: ranu^led its illGUranCr- last summer and the School board has therefore had the re- nr-mrihiMy since then. .. The Community school has long asked the hoard to assume this coverage, and Mr. m calH tht- rrnun was info last Sortember the board finally Board members disclaimed all knowledge of this. -.. Kennedy Argues mini Board vice president E; n . Kennedy argued the point heatedly, saying the city u im-niiinp to suit except under 'certain itaiutes. and an act of the Legis lature might b-. required to Jet the city cover tne Lomraumij Vj. s Vogel voiced concern triat the cost of insurance might tip the Community school's budget enough to force it tn close down And Mr. Mendes urgeu ... early answer hecause a gi™P ntercsted in opening a com munity school in the Walters-ville school area. ■ ■ : -- ■ Schools Supt.
