SCHOOL BOARD MEETS Two Substitute Teaehere for Nat - ehaug Sehe.el High SchooP ubrti tutes to be Paid During- Teachers' Illness. A regular meeting of the town school board was held in the select men's office at the town building, Wed nesday evening. All except Mr. Dion and Mr. Kelley were present. The first matter taken, ud was that school. Mrs. Robert Rose and Mrs Marjorie Rood were voted substitute teachers at a rate of $15 a week Principal J. L. Harroun had notified eeverat members of the board that the school was crowded. In the first grade there are 46 children, in the sec ond 42. in the third 49 and in the eighth SO. He recommended that more teachers be secured to take care of the extra work. He thought that there were about ten chijdren in the eighth grade who would net probably grad uate but if an extra teacher was se cured to assist Miss Jacobs and do some of the office work, probably at least four of these ten would grad uate because of the extra attention. In the Natchaug school, . another room is needed and Principal Har roun' told a member of the board that this room could' bo- made by partition ing. off a portion of the assembly room This matter was left with the building and repairs committee with power. superintendent Case called the board's attention te the fact .that a little child named Carcip. whois cripple, will -.no witnout any means of going to sfchool as her brother, who carried her to and from School Tias left for college; The child' goes to the parochial school but' will change ' if any Way can be made to provide for her transportation. The matter was left with the transportation committee to investigate and report at a Tuture meeting, i ' After . this-5 when a hiarh school teacher 'is ill, the' town will pay for her' substitute for ten' dav's and her pay will continue as usual. This ac tion was taken because the same sys tem is followed in the Natchaug sctiool and it was thought best that all schools have the same system. " In "the past the teacher who needed a substi tute paid for her services, but the town will do this' in the future for ten days in one year. The meeting adjourned, at 8.45.
