Largest single item was $181,587, distributed in semi-annual allocations from interest received on the state permanent school fund. Besides income from the permanent school fund, the $670,243.78 was made up also from legislative appropriations and regular dislributions as provided by law. Of unusual note was the $90,000 allocated to standard rural schools. Broken down, this meant 52.81 a pupil, compared with $2.42 a pupil distributed the previous year. "The increase last year was due to the fact fewer schools qualified as standard rural schools," a representative of the department explained. "Some rural schools, in the face of the teacher shortage, had to get instructors who did not qualify under the requirements of standard rural schools." Other allocations included ?I25,- 000 to consolidated schools, or $343.38 a school. A total of $72,000 was distributed to mining camp schools, on the basis of need for the individual school. High schools which conducted normal training: courses shared in a $100,000 fund at the rate of $75.0 a school. Schools which gave instruction to the deaf were allotted $9,984.54 for work with 59 slu- dcnls, and schools which taught the blind were given $5,604.54 for instructing 15 students. A total of 517,851.99 was distributed to schools which had gone to extra expense in teaching physically handicapped pupils. Allocations of this fund were made on an individual school basis, with S factors considered: 1. Transportation for the student; 2. Telephone expense for classroom instruction to homebound pupils; 3. Home instruction by visiting teachers according to schedule and previously approved program. The one other distribution was 55,215.71 for tuition of pupils living in boarding homes or charitable institutions. The money went to the districts in which the homes were located.
