Below is published the list of
teachers for Kauai for next yenr as
appointed by the Commissioners in
Honolulu week before last. Super
intendent Kinney has tho following
to say in regard to tho appoint
ments: "These appointments were made
subject to tho condition that all are
tentative and no contracts are to be
issued until after the final grado
examinations are over, when con
tracts shall bo issued as soon as
possible, except in cases where
marked inadequacy of the examina
tion resuUs or violation of the rules
make it appear bes't to withhold
action until tnc next meeting of tho
Commissioners; also excepting all
cases where teachers arc to attend
Summer School or take examina
tions. No teacher who has been
instructed by the Board of Exami
ners to take the teachers' examina
tions and who fails to try to do bo,
shall bo reappointed.
Tho list of appointments includes
a number which arc tentative for
various reasons, among them being
the fact that all the Counties have
not as yet indicated whero they will
be able to erect new buildings. For
this reason, it is possible that some
teachers who have been assigned to
places, with the expectation that
new buildings are to bo provided
there, may bo transferred to other
schools in case the" Counties fail to
provide the rooms expected.
Yon will note that there arc still
some vacancies. Some of these have
practically been filled, but the ap
pointments cannot bo announced
for one reason or another."
