In the past, funds for the s»jmmer schoc'. program vreTe provided thru state aid. These funds are not available this year as is explained in the article pre- seirtet! to the Fannside prior to last Monday's meetng by the beards yjtbUc relation com¬ mittee. Superintendent Marlcs stated that he hoped that parents cf former summer school students would take advantage of tiie Park Districts nrwiy formed program. He said that the purpose of summer schcoi has been to msklntain certain stu¬ dents at their level of achieve¬ ment throughout vacation time tnd provided a stn*:tural pro¬ gram for those students who needed it. ^ School Board Newa by the board'K PeMie RelBtiM Comnttte* The HunUey School Board, through the newly formed pub¬ lic relations committee, wlU tie pubiicisinr varicus lisues which should be ct interest to- thA peooii' *f Diateict ISS. A eorrent issac which the Hunt> ley School District, aktnif with numerious other school dist¬ ricts througliout the state, must face is that of state aid for the r^>Tiin« anh'x)! ''Plr. By the •mt'nt state formula, r^i^Kr schools in the state of lUino*? rrceive sta*e aid according to tb«> school dlstri'-ts assessed' valuation tax effort and the daily attendance of the stu¬ dent body. In District 158 we are faced with an increase in our as¬ sessed valualim. along with a decrease in student enrollment. These two factors, cnmblned with the fact that current state aid cornmitmonts are not be- ins paid 100%.conld cause a y»th«tanii-*i ir^^'cteion in state aid for the coTiing school year. Therefore, unless the 1-xal tax effort is i^oreasert or the state aid formula Is changed, many schools will have inadequate funds dlth which to operate. Another issue the schoof board faces has to do with the 1976 stHTi-ner school inogram. $t«te funds have, in the past, been available to school dist¬ ricts that provide a summer achooi progr«im. This year the question cf state aid for sum¬ mer school is StiU undecided. A dedsion on this matter tr not likely to be made before- local sdiools must plan their summer school schedule. Some schoei district are goioc a- head with their jiummaer school programs, not kncwtrg if state funds will l)c forthcoming. Some districts are planning to charge a student tuition fee lor summer school participat¬ ion. Other district are plann¬ ing to drcp the program, due to the uncertainty of funding. The Huntley Schooi Board wtll have to weljh this issue care¬ fully and make a decision at the next scheduled board meet¬ ing.
