The employment of RÓbert Cooch to begin a search for five elementary school sites for the Ann Arbor School District was approved last night by the Board of Education. Three sites will be in the northeast part of the school district, and two will be in the southeast. Money for all five sites, plus funds to build one elmentary school on the Ellsworth Ed. site and another on the Dhu-Varren Rd. site is included in the five-part bonding issue which will be on the June 8 ballot. o o The board accepted a gift of five cassette tape recorders from the Lakewood ParentTeacher Orgánization for use by the Ann Arbor Public Schools. A letter of thanks will be sent to the PTO. o o William Chrisüey of 1520 Arlington Blvd. told the board he is opposed to any millage increase at this time. Chrisüey said ín the past money for school buildings has not been] well spent, and said any millage increase would mean increases in rent or property taxes. Christley suggested people pay $100 tuition per child per year, with this amount subsidized by a reduced property tax. o o The Representa tive Council of the Ann Arbor Education Association (AAEA) said it supports "the work of parents, teachers and students to preserve the Scarlett Woods as a nature study center. We urge the Board of Education tó reconsider their position of I 'neutrality' on the issue andl instruct their attorneys tol recommend how to unencumberl the future use of that land as al school site." Four resignations from the professional s t a f f , effective June 12, were accepted. o o Representatives from the Ernst and Ernst Co. of Detroit met with the board in executive session yesterday to discuss a report on personnel provided by Ernst and Ernst.
