TRADE SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL
Cooperatlva Course Offered by School
Board First of Ita Kind in the
United States Great Opportunity
for Pijpils. .
After various conferences between
members of the Putnam town whool
committee and F. J. Trinedr, superin
tendent of the state trade schools in
Connecticut, the town school commit
tee has passed the following votes rel
ative to establishing a co-operative
course in the high and state trade
schools here, for pupils who have been
studying in the high school or who
are about to enter the institution.
Voted, that the School Committee of
the Town of Putnam, accept, adopt
and .carry out the plans proposed by
Mr. Trinder new on file with the Sec
retary, for the establishment of & co
operative course combining High and
Trade school instruction in electricity,
machinery, domestic science including
dress-making and cooking, in co-operation
with the Trade School in Put
nam and that the Town furnish a
teacher of electricity and a drafting
and mathematical teacher, the State
to furnish the domestic science teach
er. Voted, that George T. Challoner be
employed as electrical instructor in
the co-operative course for one year of
52 weeks from August 1 1914, at a sal
ary of $1,500 with a two weeks' vaca
tion. Voted, that Inez Bowler be employed
in the High School as teacher of Latin
and English at a salary of $800 per
By arrangements above referred to
with the State, through Mr. Trinder,
superintendent of trade school, the
Town of Putnam agrees to furnish two
teachers salaries of which are not to
exceed $2700 to teach electricity, me
chanical drawing and mathematics in
preparation of pupils engaging in the
study of electricity and machinery.
The teacher employed as mathematical
and drawing instructor to teach-the
ordinary mathematics of the High
School and to act as sub-master. The
State agrees to take over and pay the
expenses of the domestic science de
partment and to very much enlarge its
usefulness. The above arrangement
does away with the employment "of a
man as teacher of Latin and substi
tutes therefore a woman teacher at a
smaller salary. The net additional cost
to the Town will not be over $250.
The Committee has carefully consider
ed the whole project, having spent
many weeks in the study thereof and
feels that the young people of Put
nam and vicinity are to have a won
derful opportunity to make the most
of themselves, through the imbina
tion of Trade School and High School
education. It is confidently hoped and
expected that a boy or girl who has
suceesfully completed a two years' co
operative course will be fitted to start
life as Bkilled laborer, with all that
term implies as to compensation to be
received and opportunity for further
This is the first experiment of this
kind in Connecticut and perhaps in
the United States. The only similar
venture is that of su' h great corpora
tion as the General Electric Company
which has about seven hundred in its
apprentices schools giving similar in
structions theoretical and practical. It
is from such a school that the ranks
of skilled workmen of the General
Electric Company are filled. The Com
mittee also expects that pupils will be
attracted to he co-operative course
from other towns in Eastern Connec
ticut, which now support High Schools
but which do not h.-vve the combined
course t obe offered in Putnam. Such
pupils will pay the customary tuition
of $45 per years. The total receipts
from which will perhaps more than
make up the deficit to which refer
ence is made above.
