REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
OF SCHOOLS.

To the School Board and Citizens of Lee:

In the ten years since the adoption of the present school
law in 1919, notable progress has been made in education
throughout the state. One notable feature of that progress
is equalization, whereby the strong communities help the
weak ones to obtain approximately equal privileges. The
School District of Lee is one of the towns that profits by this
state aid. Another feature of this decade of school progress
is the lengthening of the school year throughout the state to
36 weeks, with a 3.2% increase in average attendance at the
same time. In other words, we have added one and one-
third years to the average schooling of children in the small
towns by furnishing eight full years of 36 weeks each. More-
over, high school enrollment has increased one-third, or nearly
seven times as fast as elementary enrollment. Normal school
enrollment has increased from 240 to 294, with a decrease
in per capita cost to the state from $324 to $135 per stu-
dent. This has enabled an increase in the proportion of
trained teachers from 63% to 83% of the total number.
Small districts may now have the satisfaction of knowing
that they are able to give their boys and girls an education
that can compare favorably with that furnished in larger
neighboring communities.

Slate blackboards have been installed at North Lee. If
similar equipment is placed in the South Lee schoolhouse
next summer, all three buildings will then possess this ad-
vantage. I recommend that grading be done around the
front of the South Lee schoolhouse.

Following is the Honor Roll of perfect attendance for the
year :

Gertrude Lang Stanley Plumer

Albert Demeritt Elizabeth Ellison

Goldie Harvey

Respectfully submitted,

CHESTER W. DOE,

Supt. of Schools.
