Extractions: Richland County School District One The history of school libraries in Richland County School District One goes back to as early as 1883 when D. B. Johnson was Superintendent of Columbia Schools. The Columbia school district had a female school, a male school, and a Black school (Howard school). Mr. Johnson collected more than 300 volumes as the foundation of a central school library. Two years later he said of the library: "It is a cherished plan of mine that it shall eventually expand into a free, circulating library for the whole city." (annual report 1884-85). When Mr. Johnson became president of Winthrop College in Rock Hill in 1895 and left the district, a committee report stated that "A Library of some sixteen hundred volumes has been established and modern equipment for instruction provided." School libraries continued to grow in succeeding administrations. Major events in the development of Richland One libraries are detailed below. The Administration of E. S. Dreher

Extractions: The Administration of W. H. Hand A great period of advocacy for school libraries began during the administration of W. H. Hand from 1918 to his death in 1928. Although funding for libraries was limited, Hand tried throughout his administration to improve libraries and add equipment to schools. By 1920, the salaries of librarians had increased to $1202.50 ($1000 was the salary for a full time nurse) and the budget for libraries was $305 out of $252,921. The Triennial Report 1922-23, 1923-24, 1924-25 indicates that, "All our school libraries have grown steadily and with reasonable rapidity. We have no useless volumes taking up space needed for other things. The teachers and the pupils of the different schools have shown a commendable interest in their libraries." Primary reading materials in the 1923 curriculum included Henny Penny Bremen Town Musicians The Story of Moses Cinderella Puss in Boots Alice in Wonderland , and

At this time, the Central Film Library became a part of library services. She served as director until 1983. During the 1960s, audiovisual collections in school libraries expanded rapidly. The district's Central Film Library circulated films to all district schools. Educational television also expanded rapidly beginning in the 60s. South Carolina ETV produced and broadcast educational programming. Dreher High School was one of the first schools to utilize this new media. During the 1950s and 60s, District One built many new schools. All of the schools built during this time period had library facilities. Most of the schools also had trained librarians.

Kanjorski (PA-11) today announced that the Southern Columbia Area School District has been chosen for the highly competitive 21 st Century Community Learning Centers program, which will bring an estimated $375,973 in federal funding in its first year. "I am pleased to support this promising program, which will serve about 800 students and about 500 other people in the community. The libraries and media centers at all three of the districts schools will now have wider uses outside school hours for the students, their families and other members of the community," Congressman Kanjorski said. "The 21 st Century Community Learning Centers program will provide the tools for success to hundreds of young people and adults." The federal money will enable the school district to expand existing efforts in many areas such as literacy and technology, with a special emphasis on providing help for students in any grade level who are in greatest need and at the greatest risk of failure. The goal of this extra instruction is to help those students meet or exceed state standards in subjects such as reading, math, social studies and science. The funding will also enable the schools to provide access to technology and as well as GED, job skills and literacy courses to students who have dropped out, working students, 19-year-old high school students who are credit-deficient, pregnant minors and adults in the community who receive public assistance and have not yet completed high school.

We believe that every student should have the right, accept the responsibility, and be provided with the means to grow educationally, socially and emotionally. Therefore, we will teach all students a constantly updated curriculum, using a variety of methods to meet individual learning styles, so that students will be prepared for the demands of today and the challenges of the future. We will provide a positive, safe and caring environment where teaching and learning are emphasized and rewarded, and where there is mutual respect. We will hold ourselves accountable for this through on-going evaluation. The Primary School, with full-day kindergarten, features a variety of early literacy experiences such as "big books," phonics, read-aloud sessions and journal writing, as well as story, poetry and letter writing, and age-appropriate research projects. Mathematics and science classes make use of current events, seasonal calendars, weather maps, and a full range of individual and small group "hands-on" projects and experiments.

Extractions: Good morning. Welcome to todays "Its Not Just a Book Its a Future" action workshop. Thank you Bruce-Monroe Elementary and thank you Hendley Elementary for demonstrating your commitment to your students and to your school library media center. We have an excellent opportunity with this initiative to provide the children of your schools a window to a larger world where learning is fun, exciting and rewarding. Through your commitment, through community investment and through family involvement, we are going to transform your library media centers into world-class learning and community centers that will increase student achievement. We have already taken the first step towards this ambitious goal. Wayne Ryan, principal of Bruce-Monroe Elementary, and Duane Ross, principal of Hendley Elementary, have demonstrated leadership and foresight in recognizing the role of an effective community partnership and a vibrant library media center. Carolyn Flowers and Antoinette Miller of Hendley and Cora Lauderdale and Monica Browne of Bruce-Monroe are also to be commended for their work thus far. Finally, your presence here this morning is a signal that we can realize our vision. Family involvement is going to also play a role in the development of the school media center. We are going to explore, both today and throughout the year, how we can effectively engage parents in the school community as a whole and in this initiative in particular. Again, leadership and commitment within the school is vital to the success of this effort. I would therefore like to recognize Ramiro Acosta of Bruce-Monroe and Valerie Battle of Hendley, for their leadership to date and for their tireless efforts to bring parents to the schools for events that will make them better educators of their children.

State-Specific Cholesterol Screening Trends United States, 19911999 Trends in Cigarette Smoking Among High School Students United States, 19911999 Progress Toward Poliomyelitis Eradication Pakistan, 1999June 2000 Although significant progress has been made in lowering cholesterol levels since the mid-1980s, few states attained the year 2000 national health objective for cholesterol screening in 1999 according to data from a state-based national survey. The year 2000 objective aims to increase to 75% the proportion of US adults aged 20 years and older who have had their blood cholesterol checked within the preceding five years. Overall, slightly more than 70% of US adults were screened for high blood cholesterol in 1999. Only the District of Columbia and nine states attained the national objective for the year 2000. Also, in spite of reported increases in cholesterol screening in the late 1980s, decreases were observed in the percentage of adults screened in seven states between 1991 and 1999. Only the District of Columbia and seven states are projected to attain the year 2010 objective of 80% screened.

A decline in sexual intercourse occurred among both female and male students, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, and black and white students, according to the analysis of 10 years of trend data from CDC's Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). The percentage of high school students reporting multiple sex partners (defined as four or more) declined overall from 18.7 percent to 14.2 percent from 1991-2001 and among male students, 11th and 12th grade students, and black and white students. Among all sexually active students (those who had sexual intercourse during the 3 months prior to the survey), condom use increased from 46.2 percent in 1991 to 58.0 percent in 1999, then leveled off at 57.9 percent by 2001. A similar increase followed by a leveling off was seen among female students, 10th and 12th grade students, and black students. Among male students, 9th and 11th grade students, and Hispanic and white students, condom use increased throughout the 10-year period.
