EDITOR'S NOTE One of the most important issues in our community is the utilization of the vacant Rossford Army Depot site. In accordance with Country and Town's editorial policy, Doctor W. L. Ramsey, Superintendent of Rossford Schools' has agreed to being to our readers the complete background of the events which have taken place thus far. Dr. Ramsey will be happy to answer any questions that you have in regard to the R.A.D., in Country & Town Newspaper. Please send your questions to Country and Town, Box 12 Rossford, Ohio ' ' The Rossford Army Depot was phased our in three different portions. The last phase-out was in the summer of 1963. As soon as news concerning the phase-out became public knowledge a plan was developed to use the southern 550 acres for industrial use and the northern part of 330 acres for educational use. Toledo University instituted a plan for an industrial park for the entire installation. After the Toledo Plan fell through, Bowling Green State University investigated the possibility of a technical school in the northern 330 acres. A non-profit organization was formed representative of the Wood County Citizenry. This organization, called the Community Improvement Corporation, was formed for the purpose of screening possible industrial developments and possible educational uses of the former R.A.D. facility. Their recommendations would go to the General Services Administration in Washington, D.C. On February 1, 1963, in a letter to the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, the Rossford Board of Education requested some use of the facility for educational use if the Toledo University or BGSU plans fell through. On Monday, March 16, the Bowling Green State University gave Rossford the green light to go ahead on their plans. Toledo U. had bowed out of the joture earlier. Seven interested school districts from both Lucas and Wood Counties met on Tuesday, March 17. All of these schools expressed a strong desire to develop a vocational-high school at the former R.A.D. In addition, it was learned that many other school districts of both counties were interested. The major problem facing the group was the time element. The use of the facility for education would pass from the hands of the Dept. of HEW. On March 20, 1964. An extension of time of 30 days was sought from the General Services Administration through the Dept. of HEW. Congressmen Delbert Latta and Thomas Ludlow Ashley requested the extension. Mr. Latta offered a plan to try to get the deed for the portion of the Depot for educational use to be placed in escrow for 6 months with the facility being maintained by the State. This was rejected by the State for the lack of funds. (Continued on Page 7) PERRYSBURG SCOUTS Troop 259, Church of the Master, Simmons Road, P- burg.

Knurek and Dale L. Myers of Rossford, Ohio, are meeting in Houston, Texas, for the 24th annual convention of the National School Boards Association. Theme of this year's meeting Is: "School Boards Shape A Free Nation's Future." Speakers are slated to cover the full range of school problems from keeping abreast of the developments latest in teaching techniques and school design to finding adequate financial resources to pay the skyrocketing bills for modern education. The convention officially opened this afternoon with NSBA President Mrs. Fred A. Radke of Port Angeles, Washington, calling upon school board members, superintendents, and teachers to take a fresh, clear look at their roles and responsibilities. Addressing the opening general session, Mrs. Radke said that confusion about the proper role of various members of the educational team constitutes a "critical problem which must be resolved if we are to Improve public education." The NSBA president said that it is urgent to improve communication among teachers, superintendents, and board members and to define and reach agreement on their roles and responsibilities. "The difficulty," she said,"is that we have not all sat down together to determine who shall be responsible for what in education and how that responsibility shall best be exercised." Unless we do this, she cautioned, "we shall find ourselves skirmishing in a hostile inter-action which can only work against the welfare of our children and public education." ■ Despite the public's very real stake in how this crucial problem is settled, there is ample evidence, cites the NSBA president, that our citizens in general have not recognized this internal difficulty because they have focused their attention on some of the more obvious external issues. Mrs. Radke unequivocally rejected the right of teachers to formulate educational policy. She said that sufficient attention has not been given to the ways in which teachers can properly participate in the process of developing school policy so that their voice and influence can be fell in shaping school curriculum and in determining working conditions. "Needs and interests of teachers must be taken into account by local boards when they are setting salary schedules, detennining conditions of employment, or making any decision affecting teachers' welfare." But taking these matters into account, she emphasizes, does not mean that teachers should share the decision-making power with the board of education. It is on the basis of this distinction that the NSBA has vigorously opposed both professional negotiations and collective bargaining. Mrs. Radke added: "We are opposed also to sanctions, strikes, mediation, and arbitration and do not consider them to be proper remedies for use in problem situations." Pointing out the seriousness of the situation, she said: "We believe that any action which tends to diminish the decision-making power of the board must be viewed as a serious weakening of local citizen responsibility for education and a real threat to one of our most important democratic institutions."
