Distance education students use a table in the cramped recesses of the library's magazine stacks. Recently, 14 students applied for a televised marine biology class, but only four could be accommodated because of the space, Prough said. "It was one of the worst times in my career, having to choose who would get into that class," Prough said in January. "But we could just not physically get more than four in." Perhaps worst of all is the com- puter room, Prough said. In a nar- row boxcar-like space created by partitioning of a section of the student lounge, students working on computers are jammed back-to- back along both walls of the room. They frequently overflow into the lounge to complete their assign- ments, Prough said. Plans for the high school include the addition of two general-purpose classrooms and one computer class- room, addition of distance educa- tion and publication classrooms in the present atrium, construction of a new multi-purpose room for school set at $1,042,265. Chapman Grade School has been assigned the district's highest reno- vation priority, Grabenhorst has said. The school has gained 80 students in the past four years. Its present population is 328 and projected to range from 386 to 423 by 1995, according to district figures. In the Chapman cafeteria, a class- room has been built of temporary partitions at one end while at the other a hut of flimsy partitions and a curtained doorway and no ceiling is used by the school nurse. The school library is a former classroom to which shelves were added, and the school's Chapter 1 room (for remedial math and read- ing) serves as a crowded, makeshift learning resource center. According to Grabenhorst, sci- ence rooms at Chapman are inade- quate for present-day curriculum, and wiring throughout the building cannot meet modern demands. Renovation plans are twofold. Plans call for addition of a new library and two science rooms with storage space and a greenhouse. Completion of those rooms will free up three present classrooms for general use. In addition, plans include remod- eling the kitchen and associated areas, a counselor's quarters and the to principal Craig and community use, remodeling of main hallway.

"We invite everyone to bring their concerns." According to advocates of the measure, the bonds are needed to reduce overcrowding at the high school and Chapman Grade School and to accommodate modern curric- ulum needs in areas such as science, computers and satellite-beamed educational programs. If approved, bond proceeds will be used at both schools to perform remodeling projects and to build classrooms and special-use tacilit- ies. The 15-year bonds will cost approximately $3.29 per $1,(XX) assessed value, or $164.50 per year on a $50,(X)0 house The bond measure request is the culmination of a community-wide examination of district building needs begun in 1989. The public forum is part of a multi-pronged campaign to inform patrons of building needs and to convince them to approve the bond measure. Sheridan hool district patrons are invited to attend a community forum to discuss the $2.6 million bond measure request on the March 26 ballot. The non-partisan, informational forum will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 7, in the Sheridan High School cafeteria. It is sponsored by the Positive Action League of Sheri- dan (PALS), a women's service organizntion. Babysitting will be provided by the sophomore class, refreshments will be served and a tour of the school will follow the forum, said Ann Hartman, event coordinator. The school board will join Super- intendent Ian Grabenhorst, bond campaign chairman Jan Wepstcr, district maintemmce supervisor Arnold Hostetler and building administrators in a question-and- answer session about the proposeA bond measure. "The public forum should pro- vide an excellent place in which to Casey Spotanski, front, and Daniel Spotanskl, Josh Brown and A.J. Plumley, back, display Good Turn bags distributed earlier.
