Following preliminary business the board discussed the possibility of future expansion of the school. The board discussed building a new vocational education room to house the agriculture classes and shop. No decision was made on this is¬ sue. Mr. Marks and Mr, Stading were appointed to represent the district at the annual meeting for the Spe¬ cial Education District. The board denied several re¬ quests for assistance in paying Jun¬ ior College tuition as the deadline for appling for this assistance had passed. A request from a student living out of the school district, to at¬ tend Huntley schools, was denied as this is not allowed under board policy. The only two motions made at the meeting were the following: The first a motion made by Mrs. Thrun, seconded by Mr. Jirik to apply for a title II Pi-ogram for the library in the amount of $631. This would bo a reimbursemenl from the state. The second was a motion from Mrs. Thrun, seconded by Mr. Bas¬ tian tor a title III program for an application for a social studies pro¬ gram, science, and math in the amount of approximately $2,500. These motions simply make avail¬ able the possibility of reimburse¬ ment from the state; additional moneys available to the Huntley schools without additional taxation of the Huntley School District resi¬ dents.

School Cafeteria Inspection Recently the Iluntley school cafe¬ teria underwent a very thorough examination by the state inspector from Springfield and received a quite excellent rating in all aspects. The cafeteria is under the very able management of Ruby Rehberg. Mrs. Rehberg has held this posi¬ tion for the past four years. She comes to the job with extensive ex¬ perience in the food services and fashion field. In fact she attended Charles of the Ritz School in New- York City. The other very capable ladies who assist in the cafeteria are Vi Lake, Marcy Kalsow and Irene Yurs. Each of these ladies has al¬ so been on the job for foirr yoars. The cafeteria serves an average of ;i25 meals a day to the high school and elementary students (a well-balanced meal is served each day), consisting of meat, potatoes, vegetables, dessert, buttered bread and milk. The only real problem in tho cafe¬ teria remains the overcrowded con¬ ditions. Itidiiiid I Bennett, high school li¬ brarian, reports that Huntley has just received approval for the grant for librai-y material under Title II Aci. Tho approval will permii the librarian to purchase $631.20 of instructional material for the li¬ brary, Title 11 of Public Law 89-10 makes federal funds available to supplement the efforts of local dis¬ tricts in improving library services. Tho act encompasses a set of standards which aro to be used in evaluating the library. These stand¬ ards are developed for three levels called phases. Phase I standards set minimum levels below which no ,schoal can bo expected to operate efficiently. The other two phases of standards encourage districts to make cflorts to meet and go be¬ yond fhe criteria of excellence in educational opportunity. It is ex- I)ecfed that tho library will provide many programs and a rich variety of instructional materials. The fcrmor concept of a library was that of a depository for books and magazines. The new concept is that a library should be the sehool resource for all manner of educational materials. In accord with this new idea, the name of this facility is changed from that of "library" to "learning resource Center" In the project evaluation of the Huntley School library, a compar¬ ison of the facility to the standards resulted in an over-all rating of below Pha.se I. Bennett reports that this rating docs not indicate the true effort that this community is making. He pointed out that we are playing "catch-up ball.'' The sports-minded person realizes that in "catch- up ball" massive a- Continued on Page Seven Township Posts Meeting Grafton Township Clerk Richard Knstrom reports that the closing (lay for filing petitions for Grafton Township offices has passed.
