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.
Was on Returning Transport.
James Fcgarty is visiting in thi3
