3F--July 30, 1972 Sunday Gazette-May --Charleston, West Virginia Kanawha Puts $2 Million Into Special Education The Kanawha County Board of Education has earmarked |2 million to expand special education services in compliance with a state law that requires programs for all exceptional children by 1974. A program is currently under way to identify gifted 'and handicapped children in the county. Once the children h a v e b e e n i d e n t i f i e d , programs will range from traveling teachers to a resource teacher in a regular classroom to the full special education centers. . Money is the key. to compliance with the new law. As the law was originally written, there was a provision for transportation and new classrooms. However, this money has not yet been available to county school systems. Even with the $2 million funds, Kanawha Coun- ty Schools will not be able to provide transportation for the special education students. SERVICES ARE now offered in eight categories for handicapped children. There are two centers, Shawkey in St. Albans and Owens in All Schools Start Sept. 5 It's back to school on September 5 for all public school students in West Virginia. The opening day of school is uniform this year because of recent state legislation which prohibited schools to open before Labor Day. Thus, all school administrators elected the Tuesday after Labor Day to begin school. The lirst day of school for teachers will vary from county to county. Kanawha City, for trainable mentally retarded children. Each one serves 60 students; Educable mentally retarded children are served in schools near their homes. About 825 children were in these programs last year in schools around the county. A program for deaf and hard-of-hearing pre-schoolers served five children last year. There were 12 visually han^ dicapped children who were served by a traveling teacher last year, and a primary class was taught for eight children with learning disabilities. Four homebound i n s t r u c t o r s t a u g h t 150 students last year and four speech correctionists treated some 300 children. Another special education teacher w o r k e d w i t h a b o u t 180 children at the Kanawha Home for Children. School, Yech! Wardrobe, Yeh! Even the girl who shudders at the thought of returning to school so soon welcomes the excuse it gives her for adding to her wardrobe. And perhaps the luckiest girl of all is the one heading off to campus for the first time. She.has the best reason of all for a fashion shopping spree because her goal is a good first impression. Likely as not, however, she's going to need some advice on exactly what kind of clothes to tuck in her trunk. With that in mind, Embee's has tapped five fashion--knowledgeable college girls to work in the store the entire month of August, helping prospective coeds with their wardrobe choices. The group, who will be known as Embee's Fashion Advisers, includes Malinda White of West Virginia University; Kathy Means, Mor- ris Harvey College; Paulette Ingram, Marshall University; Donna Hunter, West Virginia State; and Kathy Orders, University of Tennessee. Modeling two of the outfits they'll vouch for are Paulette Ingram (left) and Kathy Orders. Paulette wears a luxurious velveteen blazer by Larry Levine, a turtleneck bodysuit and a pair of spiffy plaid pants, wide- legged and appropriately, c u f f e d . Note her thick-soled clog shoes. Kathy-Orders selects the simplicity of this three-piece knitted pantsuit by Joshua Tree, designed with a blazer type jacket having short puff sleeves. The clothes, along with the fashion advisers, are located on the store's second floor. (Photo by Ferrell Friend) mi-^ffffffff^^ involved *s StrideRite EXTRA SUPPORT METRO . , .
