Study Skills Could Replace Industrial Arts in Dist. 15

A class on study skills might be the lone candidate to get school board support and be in place before Marquardt Middle School resumes in the fall.

So far it's the only class presented to the Marquardt Elementary District 15 school board that interests a majority of members.

The board last month rejected two other proposed replacements for industrial arts: drama and SimCity 2000, a computerized urban planning program.

Board President Marie Schmidt said she rejected those courses because students needed help in more basic areas - such as with study skills.

Superintendent Lawrence Golden said a course in study skills seems to have the best chance of being approved for next year and of being continued in subsequent years.

District 15 was forced to replace its industrial course because the longtime teacher retired this spring and there are very few new teachers entering that specialty. Although they are still trying to find such a teacher, the prospects are slim, Golden said.
