STAT'c SCHOOL BO A HD.
At Meeting Held in Columbia Mutter
Columbia, March 27.?After a scs
slon of two days, Which ended las
night the state board of education a
its annual spring meeting considers
many matters oi state-wide Interesl
The first session was held on Krida
The first thing considered was th
adoption of regulations for the dis
bursement of the $t;o.ooo appropriate*
for sehool extension. The Qarris act o
1910 made several Important change
in the policy established by the act o
1909. Henceforth, no private subserlp
tlon can be used as a basis of stab
aid. The district is made the unit fo
distributing the appropriation for th<
current year, and only Mioso district:
levying a special school tax of not less
thtn two mills are entitled to apply
Districts whose apportionment of tin
regular three mills constitutional tax
poll tax, dog tax, and dispensary prof
its will continue the session one bun
dred days, cannot share in the ap
proplntlon. High school districts an
not entitled to participate in thii
fund, because all state aided hlgl
schools are under contract to contlnui
the session eight months, and thesi
high school districts already receivi
much more from the high school ap
proprlatlon than they could be grant
ed under the extension act.
State Aid to School Buildings.
The recent legislature also appro
printed $20.000 to encourage the ercc
tlon of adequate school buildings
Three schools submitted blue print
which were approved, and each o
these districts will receive $300 fror
the secretary of the board. The la^
requires, that all plans be npprove
both by the county board of educatio
and by the state board of educatiot
and where such approval is secure
the district can receive 26 per cent. <
the cost from the county and 2."? pet
cent, from the state. In ease of con
solldatlon, an additional bonus of $in<
$.">0 from the county and $.")() from th
state, may he allowed.
Two vacancies in the office of conn
ty superintendent of education, wer
tilled at this meeting, Superintended
