But devoting 1 of every 10 periods to guidance activities would mean a loss of nearly four weeks of English instruction in a school year.

Principals and teachers would be required to develop plans "to help the students attend school regularly and succeed." The report said, "Some students who have dropped out report that it is easy to do so." Bring them So the task force proposed that all principals and teachers be given a checklist of steps to ward off dropouts, including calls to home when students are absent, parent-teacher conferences, counseling sessions with students and parents and referrals to school psychologists, social workers and community agencies.

Wittkowskl said his father, Frank; his sister, Eileen; and his brother, Daniel, deserved to be named as winners because they helped pay for lottery tickets. The board agreed to assign a hearing officer to hear the case and to appoint a committee to make recommendations for the handling of such cases in the future.

He said there are 11,952 officers on the department's payroll, and it is expected to be trimmed to 11,500 through attrition by the end of 1985.

APPARENTLY NERVOUS in his first public appearance in several months, Wittkowski explained that his father, sister and brother "split the cost of the lottery tickets with me since we began playing." The problem over the signing of the claim form has prevented Wittkowski from picking up his first check. Under the terms of the lottery, Wittkowski is entitled to receive gross winnings in the amount of $2 million annually for 20 years.
