There aro two reasons why the receipts for Tuition - reportad above - fall short of the receipts for former years or the estimates for tliis yoar. Heretofore, in inaking up the annual statement, tlie Board has accounted for the Tuition Iteceipts of the school term coraesponding to the one just opened. Sucl) moneys inore properly enter into next school year accounts, and are therefore inchuled in the estimated receipts of the coming financial year. A second reason is, that as the raar School is filled with resident scholars, tlie Board has been compelled to refiise adraission to nou residente. The whole outstanding bonded debt of the district at this time is $12 G87.50. Add to this the sum of 900 due on a mortgage on First Ward School House - or to become due July 29th 1801 - and the eutire indebtedness o; the district is $13,587.50. This includes bonds to theamount of $1,500 issued on account o First Ward School House, now in procest o erection, in accordanco with plans adopted at a special school distriot meeting held on the 31st day of March last. Of this indebtedness there will become due on the first day of Febiuary next. Bonded Principal, 2,100 00 Interest on Bonds, 1,241 25 Interest on F. AV. S. Lots Mortgage, 90 00 $3,431 25 which this meeting must necessarily provide for by tax or loan, or part tax and part loan. The Board recommtnds a tax for the full amount. It is expected that the First Ward School House will bo completcd and furnjflhed ij time for the opening of the second school term, in November next. After that time the Biard will havo no present use for the old school building on Fourth Street, known as tho "old Academy," and would therefore reconuneud that this meeting authorize a sale of the same, and the application of the proceeds toward the payment of the iudebteduess of the district. The Board estimates the amount nccessary above appropriations already made to finish, scat, fcnce, erect out-buildings &c, tor First Ward School House, at $1,200, anl recommend that this meeting provide for the saaie by tax. The Board also recommends that tliis meeting aulhorize au exchange of laad with J. F. Spaldiug, for the betteraccommotlation of tlie playígrounds of the First Ward Scliool House. The attendance upon the sevsral schools of the district dwing the year was 16G0. Owing to joint exertioa of Board and Teachers scholars have been more regular in their att 'ii'huiee tlian in former yenrs. There is vet however, room for improvement. Irregulaflty - embracing in this term both absence and tardiness - is the bane of our schools. Three months punctual and daily attendance is bett3r for the scholar than nine months scattered by days and half days through the entire school year. The Board, therefore, hopes that parenta will aid in securing punctual and regular attendance In future. Schedule A accomanying this report is a ■ slateinent of salaries paid teachers during the school year ending this day. Schedule B is an estímate sheet of tho Receipts aml Expenditures for the coming year. If theso estimates secm large, our citizens sliduld reraember that tho only ncrease of expcnse estiraatert for from year to year is mado i ncessaryby thelarge increa.se in tho nuipber of scholais depending for their cdiicntion upon tho scliools of the district, an increase ia flve years of about 600. Tho census just taken gives the numbcr of scholars in the district, between tho ages of 5 and 20, as 11)31 au increaso of 61 over last year. The terms of office of three Trustees : - E, Lawrence, W. C. Vuorheis, and E. B. Poml, expire al this date, and it is incumbent upon tliis meeting to elecl their succossors. By ordorof the Board, JNO. M. WIIKELER, President. E. B. POND, Secretaiy.
