Copies of the notice, under the 11984 civil rights act, along with a letter of explandtion from Sup-* erintendenit B. N. Barnes, ind a “choice of school” form are be- ing posted: to all parents Thurs- day. Thirty days are provided for return of the form and students 15 years of age or planning to enter the ninth grade next vear may execute their own choices, provided their parents do not. The board retains its “freedom of choice” plan in vogue this year, makes only one change of crganization in its ten-plant sys- | tem, Davidson school, this year of- fering instruction in grades one | through eight, will not offer sev- enth and eighth grade instruction next year. Students who would have preferred to attend these grades at Davidson will designate their choices to attend either Central or Compact schools. Special education classes will again be offered at the Central and Davidson plants. Courses availatle at Kings Mountain high school, but not at Compact high school, are Latin, distributive education, industrial cooperative trainimg, advanced chemistry, trigonometry and ad- vanced algebra, geography, Bible, bookkeeping and aerospace edu- cation. All students will be “assigned the school of their choice, except for overcrowding. Where over- crowding occurs, tle student de- nied first assignment will be giv- en choice to attend all other schools where spacezis-available. Beginning students and stu- dents who move into the school district after April 30 will have opportunty to designate choice of chool, with a seven-day period to make decision: Other provisions: 1) All school services, facilities, athletics, activities and programs will be operated on a de-sezre- gated basis. 2) Permission to attend school in other districts” is prohibited, where the result tends to lessen desegregation ‘on account of race, color or national origin. 3) Intimidation of or promise of favors effecting a student's choice of school is prohibited. Supt. Barnes said the Davidson school change was dictated be- ~ause the population of the two grades is insufficient to maintain ‘wo teachers for the two e¢lasses. Split-grade teaching, with one teacher, has been employed this school year.
