Page 2 Cheney Free Press Thursday, June 3, 1982 [] West Point Cheney seniors, from left, Kirk Benson and Joe Hedge each have been appointed to the U.S. Army Military Academy at Westpolnt. Making the presentation at Tuesday's awards ceremony was Col. Howard Pettibone. Busing issue settled While the decision to locate four self-contained classrooms at each dis- trict elementary school for special education students was approved last Wednesday, the Cheney School board decided the change could be made without busing next year's sixth grad- ers from their present schools. During the past week board members Roger Harding and Sue Christiansen- Fuhrman met with parents to explain the boards' reasoning for the proposed busing. "The board members said the meet- ing was very positive...we failed when we didn't involved parents in the initial planning. We will not be busing sixth graders and special education students will attend their neighborhood schools for the most part...we feel this is important in eventually mainstreaming them into the classroom," Marts said, adding, "Our classloads will be a little unbalanced without the busing but it is not a critical situation. If we should have to consider busing as an option sometime in the future, you can be sure we will involve parents right at the star: in the process." During the meeting, member Harder also made a suggestion which met with enthusiastic approval by his fellow board members. Harder suggested that each schools' Parent-Teacher Organi- zations work out a system whereby a representative member will attend each school board meeting on a rotating basis. The board agreed that such an arrangement would facilitate commun- ication of school board activities to parents. Board members also accepted bids totaling more than $10,000 from North Pacific Lumber and $6,465 from Cheney Building Supply for the purchase of wood and related supplies used in shop classes at the high school and junior high. Marrs pointed out that while the district supplies practice wood and supplies at district expense, materials for individual projects are purchased by students. Because the district pur- chases supplies in large quantities, students are able to purchase materials at a considerable savings over normal retail costs, he said. Continuation of the existing Well Use Agreement with Four Lakes Water District No. 10 was also approved at last Wednesday's meeting. About six years ago, the district and Four Lakes established an agreement allowing Water District No. 10 to tap into the school district's well as needed. Because the well is a sound one, and the only water-using building located in the area is the Instructional Media Center, the arrangement was approved.

Each year, the boarl establishes a set of goals concerning curriculum program development and a timetable for their accomplishment. "Unfortunately this year, our goals will be aimed more at maintaining existing programs than the develop- ment of new ones," Marrs said, citing budget cuts as a reason for less expansion in school programs. The next regular board meeting is scheduled for June 9 in the district board room at the Fisher Administra- tion Building. During the summer, the board will meet only on the fourth Wednesday of each month unless situations call for a second monthly meeting. Lakeland accepting application Room and Board in exchange for giving 15 hours of service a week for the summer and fall quarter is offered to college students by Lakeland Village. With just a few openings left, students live in private apartments and free meals are provided at the Lakeland Campus, a state facility for mentally retarded people. Students need not be enrolled for college during the summer quarter, just the fall quarter. The basic function of the students is to help meet the program needs of Lakeland Village residents. Students would be assisting staff in training mentally retarded residents in basic social, recreational, educational, and physical skills. Called the College-In-Residence Vol- unteer Program, it is geared for those students wanting to save on college expenses, explore a career opportunity, earn field work crlit, or gather future job references.

Faculty members on band and repre- sentatives of the Faculty Organization, whose Academic Senate adjourned it- self April 29 in protest to the board of trustees' acceptance of a special com- mittees merit pay plan, requested the trustees to meet with the senate's executive committee to develop a re- negotiated plan. While members told the board they were confident that a compromise plan could be adopted in "one five-hour meeting," the trustees gave the idea a negative response saying there had been no breach of good faith in their adoption of the special committee plan. Instead, the trustees said they were eager to discuss the problem of shared governance. Bruce McPhaden, chair- man of the board, told faculty mem- bers, "The compromise plan (present- ed by the academic senate) did not meet the stated parameters we es- tablished. There is a serious problem of trust among the board, the faculty and the administration which I deplore and I want to develop a level of confidence and trust that doesn't exist now...The plan (accepted by the trustees) doesn't suit my criteria at all, but I'm not interested in reopening it." Newly-elected Faculty Organization President Lula Schroder appealed to the board for reconsideration of the issue saying that a recent survey of faculty members in 20 departments had indicated they would not work under a plan not approved by the faculty senate. "We need your help to develop a mutually agreeable definition of shared governance," she said. Board members agreed with her, but still declined to discuss any reopening of merit pay discussions, opting instead to function under the adopted plan which allots 30 percent of the pay pool to merit pay and involves deans in the dispersal process, on a trial basis of one year. While faculty members continued to argue the issue with the trustees for more than an hour, citing the board's failure to reopen negotiations as in- dication that shared governance is no longer functioning at the university, the trustees remained firm in their deci- sion. "This is not the board's problem, it's the faculty's problem. You bring us problems and accusations but you have not brought us any solutions," Mc- Phaden concluded. Prior to the meeting, President H. George Frederickson reported that the university may make further cuts in the summer session course offerings in June and July if revenues do not improve. A 25 percent reduction in summer courses has already been scheduled. "Things are crashing so fast that I wouldn't be surprised to find we have to make cuts we never dreamed of," Frederickson said in commenting on / budget preparations under way for the 85-86 biennium budget to be completed by September. Citing the possibility of a repeal of the food tax and other fiscal moves, the university president said, "The people preparing the guidelines for the next biennium are using the most conserva- tive standards I've ever seen in an institution of higher education." Though Eastern has made significant reductions in classified staff through layoffs and in faculty through retire- ment and attrition, Frederickson said further cuts may prove necessary. "We feel we are very close to that minimum breaking point and soon we may have to eliminate programs... there is no question we will be reducing course offerings in the fall," he said. In other board business, the trustees approved a change in the basic board and room rate for the 198243 school year. The new rate will be $2,208, a 10.5 percent increase over the basic 1981-82 rate of $1,998. The trustees also approved tuition and fee increases for the 1982-83 school year. Resident undergraduate tuition will be raised from $867 to $942 for an academic year. Graduate rates will be from $996 per year to $1,320. In addition to the basic rate in- creases, full-time students registered for more than 18 credit hours will be charged an additional operating fee for each credit hour in excess of 18 hours. Undergraduate resident students will pay $38 per credit hour and resident graduate.students will pay $101 per credit hour.
