By Supt. J. M. Berkey:
Another term of our common schools
will soon have made its record. For the
county, as a whole, the term of 1801-2
has heen a most successful and satisfac
tory one. All the districts in the county.
except Somerset and Moeyersdale, have
had six months’ term, and with the ex-
ception of the schools in the capital and
metropolis, all will have closed within
the next thirty days unless specially de-
In this column we ean refer only to
the work connected with the close of the
schiools which this vear presents somo
new features, especially as applied to
the rural distriets.
The grading of all schools has heen
attempted, and thus far the progress and
the resnlts have been generally satisfacto
ry. “A beginning has been made in every
school, and the foundation: laid for a
more systematic and thorough grading
next vear. Substantial progress in any
line of-popular education must necessa-
rily be graded. No radical changes or
reforms are contemplated, We seek to
retain all that is good. while we reach
Forward Tor still better things in and for
our schools. . New demands are bat ihe
evidences of healthy growth, and while
the development of the schools is so gen-
erally recognized, it is also evident to all
who are intimately acquainted with their
condition and their needs, that their uhi-
mate good can come only through sys:
tematic work, through grading. and pop-
nlar support. This 1s the end in view in
the application of the Graded System and
the Course of Study. The readiness with
which teachers and directors endorse and
aid this movement, calls forth grateful rec-
ognition and popular support. In a few
years we may have thoroughly graded
schools in every district, and all the pu-
pils and patrons will understand fully

tem, while they. reap its benefits :in very
much better schools. : x
| ‘The uatural and legitimate outgrowth
of a graded system in Graduation. and to
thisfeature attention is here directed.
Meyersdale, Somerset. Berlin, Ursina
and Confluence will this year present
clusses for examination. Rockwood and
Salisbury will have Junior classes only.
| These seven boroughs have special cours: |
es of study comprising the common
school curriculum and some or all of the
following additional branches: Litera:
ture. Rhetoric. Algebra, Drawing, Buook-
keeping and General History. All other
schools in the county use the County Course
of Study which includes the common
branches only. With the adoption and
use of this course of study pupils may
graduate from the country as well as
from the town schools. The system of
graduation is practically the same in
town and country. except that the hor-
ough high schools have the advanced’ or
additional work. and applicants for grad-,
uation in those schools are in all branch:
es of the adopted course, while those
from all other schools are examined in
‘the common branches only.
This is the first year for the course of
study in the country and small borough
districts, but in many schools the move:
ment has given a decided impetus, and
a number of advanced pupils have Ap-
plied for graduation at the close of the
schools in their respective districts. Ap-
plicants may attend the examination
most convenient for them: The dates
and places named below will accommo:
date all applicants reported. Two days
are given to the borough high schools of
Berlin, Somerset, and Meyersdale.
Examinations will be held as follows:
