AHMtJAL REPORT OP COXTHTT SUPEBXVTEVBEVT OT SCHOOX.S.
To the School Patrons:
I herewith submit my annual report
of the county schools for the year end
ing July 31, 1912. This report has been
delayed too long but more pressing du
ties of the office have taken all my time.
It is gratifying to state that the last
school year was the best in the history
o£ the county. There were more months
of school, better equipment and more
of experienced teachers than ever be
fore. As a result the number of gradu
ates increased about fifty per cent over
that of any previous year. In order to
get a county diploma a-pupil must pass
the county examinations, or their equiv
alent, in all the subjects required for a
teacher's second grade certificate. Many
of the rural graduates are now students
in the different high schools in the
The last year was one of great build
ing activity. Districts 25. 68, 77, 81, 84,
88 and 104 put up splendid school hous
es and Dist. 106 has one under construc
tion this fall. All of these buildings
are modern in form, ample in space and
the best provisions made for lighting,
heating and ventilation. District 55 or
better known as the Svea School made
substantial improvements in its build
ing and is now a consolidated school.

This year we have eighty-six special
state aid schools in the different, classes
as follows: As semi-graded 8, class A
41, class 19 and as class 18. As the
schools getting special state aid are
better equipped and employ better
teachers as a rule, nearly all the gradu
ates come from these schools.
This year has started out with splen
did prospects for another good year. The
teaching force which is the main factor
for good work is well above the average
and good results should be expected.
The greatest drawback to good work is
irregularity in attendance. Some peo
ple yet seem to think that a few doll
ars worth of work is worth more than
an education for their children.
