A/I ore Than 300 Expected When
Summer School Begins June 2 7
More than 300 students arc ex
pected to attend summer school
when it begins June 21 at Supply
Elementary School, but more may
take advantage of free lunches avail
able for all school-age youngster*.
Summer school will be held Mon
day through Thursday from 8:30 a.m.
to 1:15 p.m., taking the week of July
5-8 off for the Fourth of July holiday,
:ind ending July 29. It will be offered
only at Supply Elementary.
The month-long summer school
will offer remedial services to two
specific groups of students. Summer
School Director William Detric said
He is expecting about 300 stu
dents from all across the county to
attend under Basic Education Pro
gram guidelines. That program pro
vides that students in grades 3,6 and
8 who arc failing must have the op
tion of attending summer school or
repeating their grade. Remedial help
will be provided in the area or areas
of the student's deficiency.
The summer session will also
serve students in grades 6, 7 and 8
who need to make up attendance in
order to be promoted. They will be
allowed to make up any days be
yond 10 ihcy have missed.
'They will have legitimate class
work and instruction on the days
they make up," said Dctric. "We
don't know how many of these stu
dents to expect. If there arc a great
many, we may have to bring them in
on a staggered schedule."
No summer school will be offered
for any reason to high school stu
dents, who have had the opportunity
to make up both absences and poor
grades throughout the school term.
Funds for traditional summer school
were used to offer after-school and
Saturday make-up classcs.
Yellow bus transportation and
free lunches will be available for all
"We're looking at having enough
buses out there it won't be a real
long ride for anyone," he said. "The
maximum ride now is 1 1/2 hours
and we will try to stick to that level
or as close as is reasonable." Bus
routes will be announced next week.
Free Lunches Offered
Food Service Director Rebecca
Brandon said free lunches will be
available not only to all students en
rolled in summer school, but to all
children ages 1 to 18 years, or hand
icapped children over age 18 who
participate in school programs.
Under the summer food service
program for children, lunch will be
served from 10:30 a.m. until noon
each day that summer school is in
session. At noon the cafeteria doors
must close, she said.
The school system is able to offer
the lunches at no cost bccausc
Supply Elementary School has no
established history for summer
school food service. Ms. Brandon is
predicting that at least 45 percent of
those enrolled in summer school
will be eligible for free or reduced
lunches. If so, then she can continue
offering the meals at no cost
throughout the entire session.
If after the first week the percent
age is lower, "then we would have
to change to the regular school free
and reduce lunch price schedule,"
For adults accompanying children
to lunch, meals will be available tor

Excellence In Teaching Said Aim
Of Schools, UNC-W Joint Effort
A signing ceremony Friday will mark a four-year
commitment by the University of North Carolina at
Wilmington and the Brunswick County Board of
Education to work together.
The ceremony and a brief reception will be held at
Supply Elementary School at 10 a.m.
Their goal is to attain a higher standard of cxccllcncc
in teaching using an approach that could changc the way
public schools and universities traditionally work to
gether to prepare new teachers.
One effort will be to improve training for student
teachers by tapping the knowledge and skills of the
county's best classroom teachers as mentors. University
faculty will share the latest methods and instructional
programs with classroom teachers to help keep their
skills fresh. And, one educator from the county schools
will temporarily bccomc a faculty lccturcr at UNC
The agreement establishes Brunswick County
Schools as a Professional Development System (PDS)
district The partners will pool financial and personnel
resources for the benefit of student teachers, classroom
teachers and UNC-W's teacher preparation faculty.
Brunswick County will serve as a development resource
for the region.
Its contract with UNC-W calls for providing up to
25 student teachcrs, working in teams or clusters, with
an array of real world teaching and learning experiences
under the mentoring of top-notch public school and uni
versity teachcrs. Students arc to receive 60 to 80 hours
of field experience in methods, including tutorials, com
munity experience and direct instructional experiences.
Starting next summer, the system has agreed to pilot
UNC-W's Experimental Teacher Preparation Model.
The university will provide local public school
teachcrs more professional development training oppor
tunities within Brunswick County. These will include
extension graduate level courses for mentor certifica
tion, special lectures on education-related topics, and
opportunities to see and learn to use "best teaching prac
tices" and new methods and instructional approaches.
The school district's Professional Development
System coordinator will be designated as a senior lectur
er at UNC-Wilmington. In turn the university will desig
nate a half-time faculty coordinator of the PDS.
Participating in the signing ceremony Friday will be
Superintendent Ralph Johnston; a representative of the
Brunswick County Board of Education; Robert E.
Tyndall, dean of the School of Education; and Marvin
