FOREST PAfik REVIEW,' W^OliES <£ 1971, PAGE 17 Inter-Board Council By lody Henderson For more than a year now, a group of interested citizens have been giving of their time to help the youth of Forest Park. This group of 10 people from St. Bernardines, St. Johns and the Public Schools is known as the Inter-Board Council. The Council members representing Boards of Education are: Paul Fitzgerald - St. Bernardine, Fred Bacon - St. John, James Beauchamp - St. John, Harold Whelpley - Public Schools and Charles Marinier - Public Schools. The Council members representing the Administration of the three schools are: Chairman - Don Behnken - Principal St. John, Information Director- Len Bannon - Principal St. Bernardine, Arthur Jones- Principal F.P. Middle School, Lloyd Lehman - Superintendent F.P. School and Alice Zimmerman - Representative for F.P. Village Council. The Council grew out of a concern for all Forest Park elementary age children and their education. The Inter-Board Council is somewhat uriiqueto the Chicago suburban area. Forest Park is one of the first suburbs to conceive and implement the idea. This Board does in fact serve as the agent to represent and protect the interests of all children in Forest Park and at the same time serves a need. The purposes of the Council are: 1. To work together to solve mutual problems related to the educational programs. 2. To improve and increase communication. 3. To plan and develop cooperative educational programs. 4. To approach mutual educational problems in a united effort. Several programs have been started or are being studied by the Council. These are: 1. The re-lnstatement of shared enrollment programs in Industrial and Home Arts for 7th and 8th grade students. 2. To continue sharing physical education facilities. 3. The initiation of a Title n Library and Instructional Materials Program. This Federal Aid program has been submitted and approved. Library resources have improved and benefitted all schools as a result of this cooperative adventure. 4. A 1971 Summer School which Is in the planning stage. This so far has involved discussion among the Council members to better determine the educational needs of all children. Although the summer school will be housed in the Field-Stevenson Building, students from all the F.P. Schools will be involved. 5. The most exciting venture of all is the study of the possibility of implementing a full-scale Big Brother' Program. The Council has met w|th Mr. Gary Nolder, Director of Big Brother of Metropolitan Chicago. Mr. Nolder and the Council are much interested in developing a program for both boys and girls of Forest Park. The work of these people is certainly evidence that there are those who care and are willing to spend their time for all the youth of Forest Park. Congratulations for a job well done and best wishes for success with future plans! JJQ> B « B0 0 a « 00000 eBBOBBOPDOOOOOOOOOttOaOflO««IIBQ« SAVE 50% or MORE Luxury Permanents (Tu es .-wed.) $30.
