L.yncasti:h, Pa.. Jan. 1. 1SS0.
Te lh' 'resident unit Members of the fMitcaiter
City Scheel J'uurtl :
GnxTLOinx : The committee appointed
at the last stated meeting of the beard te
consider the subject of new school houses
for Lancaster city,s ith ussti actions te sub
mit a plan for the .systematic location and
erection of the same, having as eaiefully
and fully attended te the important matter
committed te them as they eet.veniently
could, would respectfully repeit the fol
lowing items, together with the principal
reasons for their adoption by the commit
tee, as the result of their labors.
1. The present arranircnient of the Lan
caster city school distiict into four divi
sions formed by the intei .section of Kin.;
and Queen streets at Centre squaic shall
be retained. This arrangement of the dis
trict into four divisions is perhaps the best
that could be made. It is natural. The
boundaries are plain. I no divisions are
net greatly unequal. The enrollment of
primary and secondary pupils in these te
.speetive divisions is as fellows : North
west, 82S ; Northeast, (":) ; Southeast,
031; Southwest, 718.
2. Ample school accommodation shall
be provided in each lespcctive division for
all the piimary and secondary pupils who
reside within the limits of said division.
The advantages of having .-.Jioel accom
modations for the primary and secondary
pupils within the divisions in which they
live, and in se far as possible, in the same
building, arc, lirst, the great convenience
of access, and secondly, children of the
same families and localities, attending
school of the same place, will enable the
larger children te accompany and take care
of the smaller ones.
e. The beard shall provide as seen as
practicable for the erection of four new
school buildings, one in each of the
four divisions of the city, with accommo
dations in each building for both the pri
mary and (secondary pupils of said division
who are net already or may net hereafter
be otherwise provided for. The erection of
four new buildings, one in each of the four
divisions of the city net of equal capaci
ty, but of such capacity in each case as the
circumstances may require is, in the
opinion of the committee, the most practi
cal and economical plan for providing ac
commodations for the pupils of the prima
ry and secondary departments of our pub
lic schools, and also for impieving the or
ganization and increasing the efficiency of
these schools. In the southeast division
it would net be necessary for the new
building te have accommodation for mere
than ."550 pupils.
1. The new buildhurs shall be erected
upon sites already in possession of the
beard, in se far as these sites may be
deemed elegible. Upen investigation your
committee iind that perhaps the most elig
ible sites for school houses in the different
divisions, which are available, are these
at present in possession of the beard. The
let en Lemen and Lime stiects, in the
Northeast division in a central locality of
the division has an extent of 1U2 by 218
feet. The let en Seuth Duke street, in
the Southeast division, has an extent of
130 by 2:30 feet. The let en West Chest
nut street, in the Northwest division, has
an extent of 10!) by 20(5 feet. The let en
Dinah's Hill, in the Southwest division,
has an extent of 127 by 208 feet. These
lets, though net perhaps as large as might
be desired, arc yet large enough for the
e. The new buildings shall all be con
structed en the single room plan. They
shall be two stories high. The rooms for
the primary schools shall have a capacity
for 00 pupils, with a lloer surface, te each
pupil of at least 9 square feet. The rooms
for the secondary schools shall have a ca
pacity for 50 pupils, with a lloer surface of
at least 13 square feet. All the school
rooms shall be furnished with single seats
and desks for each pupil, and in the con
struction of the buildings special attention
shall be paid te the lighting, heating and
ventilation of all the apartments. Tin
matters referred te in this item will, we
think, recommend themselves te every
thoughtful and sincere friend of the chil
dren of the public schools. Theie is no
doubt in the minds of your committee that
the foundations of disease, and of moral as
well as physical wretchedness, aie often
laid in the uncomfortable appointments,
unequal temperature and vitiated atmo
sphere of public school rooms. Vie believe
also that great advantages in regard te or
der, discipline and efficient work will re
sult from having net only single rooms for
the separate schools, but also single desks
and scats for the scholars.
0. lite first new building shall be erect
ed in the Northeast division, en the let new
owned by the beard and located en the
northwest comer of Lime and Lemen
streets. After a very careful consideration
of the whole field, your committee are of
the opinion that the erection of the first
new building in the Xertheast division will
best meet and relieve the immediate neces
sities of the present circumstances. The
Northeast division, with 2'.lt secondary
pupils, has no secondary school at all. The
location of the building, at Lime and Lem
en streets, is such that the secondary m
pils, as well as some of the primary pupils
from the northeast portion of the North
west division, can be conveniently accom
modated in it until the new building con
templated in this plan is erected in the
Northwest division. Thus we believe that
the Northwest division could be easily re
lieved te such an extent as te make the
Prince street building ample in its accom
modation for all the secondary pupils ic
maining within that division. If the fiist
building is located in the Northeast division
the Southeast division will also be relieved
snllicicntly te warrant the withdrawal of
Miss Hantch's school entirely and the res
toration of Mr. Gates's school from its very
inconvenient location te its lermer quar
teis. "We would also add that the let en
Lemen street, en account of its extent, ;s
of all the sites in the city best adapted te
the immediate erection el a new uuiluiug.
The work could be commenced at once,
without the purchase of a feet of ground
and without disturbing the schools.
7. The building te be erected at Lime
and Lemen sheets shall contain 12 rooms,
with an aggregate minimum capacity for
000 pupils. A building with 12 rooms, and
a capacity for at least 000 pupils will net
be tee large. The extent of the let is suf
ficient ter a buildimr of that size. The
pupils enrolled from that division at pres
ent number 031 ; and then we should re
member we build for the future.
8. As the necessity may arise ether
school buildings of required capacity
shall be erected, en the same general plan
et the four large buildings, in districts
which aie se situated as te make the ccu
tral or main building of the division diffi
cult or inconvenient of access. By this
item it will be seen that the plan submit
ted in this report contemplates that there
shall be ultimately two school buildings
in each division for primary and secondary
pupils a large central building and an
additional building of such dimensions as
may be required. In the Southeast divis
ion en Iieekland stiect, and in the North
cast division at Prince and Chestnut streets
these second buildings arc already erected.
In the Northeast and Southeast divisions it
will dimbtlcsn be found necessary in a few
years te have second building of a similar
I). As rapidly as the new buildings pro
vided for in this plan are completed the
primary and secondary schools of Lancas
ter city shall be reorganized en the single
room plan with one teacher for each room
Appreciating the great importance of
this whole subject, the consideration of
which ought te have occupied our serious
attention long age, jour committee would
most earnestly urge upon the beard the
necessity of prompt and efficient action.
Ltt the plan herewith submitted be
thoieughly di-cus-ed and either appievcd
or made te give place te something better.
It is a humiliating fact that Lancaster
city, the pioneer in the great public school
movement, should in many respects be se
far behind in the condition and appoint
incuts of her own schools. Theirue edu
cation of the children of the community is
the rerjfirtt thing te be looked after and
carefully attended te. Xe ether inter
est, private or public, takes precedence of
it. It is the first duty which comes te
the man or the citizen.
In view, therefeie, of the vast impor
tance of the work before us. your com
mittee beg the members of the beard
thoroughly and promptly te consider a'l
the mptters referred te in this report,
which is herewith very respectfully sub
mitted. D. II. Geissineer,
II. Z. KneADs.
T. B. Ceciiisan.
Mr. Spurrier moved that the repeit be
adopted, and the suggestions and recom
mendations of the committee be approved.
Mr. D. G. IJaker said he heartily ap
proved of the plan recommended by the
committee, except that part which pro
posed single rooms. This feature of the
plan he had uet given sufficient considera
tion te form an opinion" whether or net it
would be an improvement en the combined
plan new in use.
Mr. Jehn I. Ilartmau approved of some
things that the committee recommended,
but he was opposed te that feature which
proposed the centralizing of the schools at
one location. He believed this part of the
plan te be costly and unwise, and he knew
it would be inconvenient. Many of the lit
tle children would be obliged te walk five
ei six squares or mere, te the proposed
central school house, and te carry out the
plan in full as proposed by the committee
would involve a cost of .j0,000 or $100,
000. Uut whatever might be thought of
the plan, the matter is an important one
and deserves careful discussion before
action is taken. lie moved te postpone the
matter for one month.
Rev. Geissingcr said he had no objection
te having the matter postponed, but he
would like te have some discussion and
interchange of views at the present time.
The committee had very carefully consid censid
eied the points te which Mr. llartman had
objected. Each of the four divisions is
one mile square, and a school house near
its centre of population will be mere con
venient te a great number of pupils than if
located anywhere else ; besides, as will be
seen by the report just read, it is proposed
eventually te erect ether school houses as
the population increases, te accommodate
pupils living at tee great distance from
the central school house. As te the cost,
it is net proposed te build mere than one
school house at present, and one will have
te be built somewhere te relieve the schools
that are new overcrowded. The commit
tee recommend the Lemen street let for the
reasons stated in the report.
Mr. Eberman said that in view of the
fact that the plan proposed involved an al
most entire change in our present school
organization, and further, as two promi
nent members of the beard who have given
the matter much thought are absent en ac
count of death in their families, iic thought
it would he best te postpone the conside; censide; conside;
atien of the subject till next meeting.
Mr. Geissingcr asked leave te make the
tabulated statement of the enrollment of
pupils printed in yesterday's Ixtelli
gexcer a part of the committee's report.
Rev. Reimensnyder heartily endorsed
the report of the committee with the ex
ception of the single room plan and en
that his mind was undecided.
Mr. Rhoads had disfavored the single
room plan until he had interviewed a num
ber of teachers, all of whom favored it and
pointed cut its advantages, especially as
regards the undivided responsibility of
the teachers and the consequent better
discipline of the schools.
Mr. Erisman stated that under our pres
ent system tlieie is always a pressure el
pupils en the lower divisions, both in the
primary and secondary schools. Frequent
ly the lowest division contains mere pupils
than all the ether, and it is impossible for
the second assistant appointed te teach
them te de justice te se many scholars.
While the lower divisions are over
crowded, it often happens that the higher
.1:..: : ,, ., . . .
invidious are net iuii ;uie vacant scats in
these divisions are then given te pupils of
the lower divisions and thus the classes are
disarranged, and confusion ensues. Much
time is lest in the present plan, by trans
ferring classes from the study hall te the
class room, and back avaiii te tln stndv
hall. All this would be avoided by the
single room plan. The pressure en the
lower divisions would also be avoided, for
each division would occupy its own room,
say, with eO or 00 single desks, and as seen
as these become tee full another room can I e
opened and another teacher appointed. As
at present organized, with three teachers
in one school, there is a divided responsi
bility and sometimes a difference of epin
ion as te discipline. IJy the single room
plan this will be avoided, and each teacher
will be ic-pensible for the discipline of his
or her own loom. Anether advan
tage of the proposed plan is that it
adds an incentive te minils in
secure piometion. These who arc
new in primary or secondary schools if
asked what school they attend invariably
name the principal et the school, though
they may net be in the principal's classes.
Thus dull pupils frequently pled en in the
lower classes ferscveral years, but all the
time in Miss So-and-se's school. By the
adoption of the single-room plan, they will
see their classmates being transferred net
only te higher classes, but te ether teach
ers in ether school rooms, and they will
naturally exert themselves te accompany
Mr. Brosius said the single-room plan
was in use in Philadelphia, Bosten, Chica
go and ether cities, and had been found
te work well. Mr. Brosius described at
some length the comprehensive system of
j education adopted by the Chicago school
The motion te postpone the further con
sideration of the matter for one month was
then put and carried.
Dr. Levergood, from the special com
mittee te revise rules, tcpertcd progress
and said the committee would make a final
report two mouths hence.
Mr. Johnsten inquired of the president
and secretary whether they had received
any information from the state superin
tendent as te whether he had drawn or
when he intended te draw his warrant for
the state appropriation due Lancaster
Mr. Evans moved that the secretary be
directed te write te Dr. Wiekersham,
state superintendent, and inform him that
the beard demand him te comply with the
law and draw his warrant en the state
treasurer for the amount of the state ap
propriation due Lancaster school district,
ami forward said warrant te the beard.
The motion was unanimously adopted.
