ARIZONA, THURSDAY, MAY 18, 1939 fwerfsv Coolidge Union High School Is Awarded North Central Rating Mr. Clinton M. Mangun, superin tendent of thq Coolidge Union High School has just been notified that this school has been approved by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools for the period ending June 30. 1940. In explanation of the term of approving, the local school authorities have been advised that it is the established policy of the Association to prepare each year a new list of approved secondary schools accorded this honor and that no school is approved by the North Central Association for a period longer than one year. Before any school can be con sidered for approval by the North Central Association, it must be on the highest list of schools approved and accredited by the school authorities within the state. It must also meet the policies, regulations, and criteria which the Association maintains. These include such matters as instruction and spirit, school plant, sanitation and jani torial service, instructional equip ment, the school library and libr ary service, school records, policies of the board of education and the administration of the school and its financial support, preparation of the instructional and supervisory 6taff, the teaching load, the pupil load, and the educational program. This last item includes such mat ters as the school’s program of studies, its allied activities pro gram, its guidance provisions, the success of its program, and the school and its community relations. The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools approves both secondary schools and institutions of higher learning in twenty states comprising a large portion of North Central and Cen tral United States reaching from Montana in the Northwest and Ari zona and New Mexico in the South west to Ohio, Indiana, and Wtest Virginia in the East. It is the aim of the Association to bring about a better acquaintance, a keener sympathy and a heartier coopera tion between colleges and secon dary schools; second, to consider common educational problems and devise the best ways and means of solving them; and third, to pro mote the physical, intellectual, and moral well-being of students by urging proper sanitary conditions of school buildings, adequate libr ary and laboratory facilities, and higher standa-d of scholarship. All decisions of the Association bear ing on the policies and management of secondary schools and instiu tions of higher education are un derstood to be advisory in their charter. The approval of schools by this Association is a cooperat ive undertaking and membership is purely voluntary. No school is approved unless there is the ex pressed desire of the local authorities of a high school for such approval. Certain advantages result from such approval. In brief, they are: 1. Graduates of any approved high school are privileged to enter institutions of higher learning with in the North Central states with out entqajiqe examinations, pro vided they have credits in the high school subjects required by the college or university to which ad mission is sought. Since other ap proving agencies recognize North Central schools, this privilege of entering institutions of higher edu cation without examinations is ex tended practically throughout the United States. (There are some institutions of higher learning who do not admit graduates of North Central high schools if the rank ings of these graduates are in the lowest one-fourth of the graduating class.) 2. The graduates of approved high schools have the assurance that their high school diplomas will be acceptable to State Boards having to do with the granting of certificates for the various profes sions of medicine, dentistry, law, etc. In states requiring graduation from approved high schools as a prerequisite to the obtaining of a teaching certificate, the graduates of schools approved by the Central Association meet the requirements of such a law. 3. A high school approved by the North Central Association must maintain high standards and coneeqquently the Community is assured of a program of modern high school education. 4. The visitation of the school at regular intervals by supervisors serves to stimulate progress and to prevent the development, of ques tionable practices and tendencies. 5. A high school approved by the North Central Association en joys a greater prestige in the surrounding country and therefore finds it easier to attract non-resi dent students. 6. The patrons have more con fidence in and are generally more willing to support an approved high school.
