Charles Lamb was appointed President Pro Tem. Followinjf the reading of the minutes the Board recognized Mr. Fred A. Rozum, chairman of the special education for McHenry county for educable mentally han¬ dicapped. Mr. Rozum stated that the cost for a teacher of an E.M.H. class in Huntley would be $8100. The state would reimburse $3500 of this sum. He went on to say that most schools in McHenry county are cooperating in setting up a program for mentally handi¬ capped people. He informed the board that the class planned for Huntley will be for junior high school age boys and girls ranging from 12 to 15 years with an intelli¬ gence quotient of about 60 to 80. He said these children could only function two thirds to three fourths of what would be expected of normal children. This class is now being held in Marengo. Most of the students, however, who at¬ tended this class come from the south-east portion of the county, from Crystal I^te, Fte River Grove, Algonqoin and Huntley & this is the reason the people in charge of the special education program hope to move the class to Huntley. $4600 is billed to the school dis¬ tricts who have children in the class which is paid to the school acting as host for the class. The cost varies somewhat with the number of children from the dis¬ trict. The instructor of the class is under contract to the school dis¬ trict and is considered as a mem¬ ber of the staff. If a student transfers into the class in the middle of the year the parent dis¬ trict is billed on the basis of the number of days in the class. Mr. Rozum said that the chil¬ dren are not physically handicap¬ ped. He said he asks the district to keep accounts of money spent on this class as this is also reim¬ bursed. At the present time there are 14 special education rooms in the county, 7 for EMH, 2 for the se¬ verely handicapped, 3 for severe learning problems and 2 for psysi- cally handicapped people. Mr. Rozum stated that students grad¬ uate from the host district, that they like to make the children feel they are a part of th district. One student will be graduated from Woodstock this year. A motion was made hy Grau, seconded by Bein to establish the EMH roon next year at the Hunt¬ ley school and approve the $8100 salary for the instructor. The mo¬ tion carried.
