kind of work it will be necessary to charge a small fee for
carrying it on. However, the opportunities will be so
great that all should be glad to take advantage of them.

REGULATIONS
When credit or extension of certificates is desired the fol-
lowing regulations established by the Summer School Board
must be followed:
1. No teacher shall be allowed to take more than twenty
hours per week of purely academic subjects.
2. No teacher shall take less than five hours per week
of professional work.
3. The maximum hours per week, including profes-
sional, vocational and academic subjects, shall, in no case,
exceed twenty-seven hours per week. Two laboratory
hours to be counted as one hour of academic work.
It is hoped that all teachers will recognize the wisdom
of the above regulations. To fulfill its highest mission the
Summer School should not be utilized merely for the pur-
pose of "cramming" for examinations.
Attention is directed to the following section of the
Summer School Act:

EXTENSION OF TEACHERS' CERTIFICATES
Section Six of a recent Act of the Legislature provides:
"All teachers attending any one of the summer schools
herein created and whose work entitles them to credit there-
from upon making proof of the same to any County Super-
intendent of Public Instruction in this State are hereby en-
titled to one year's extension on any teacher's certificate
they may hold and which has not fully expired."






SUMMER SCHOOL 15

CREDIT TOWARDS NORMAL SCHOOL AND COLLEGE DEGREES
Section Five of Summer School Act is as follows:
"All work performed at the said Summer Schools shall
be of such character as to entitle the students doing the
same to collegiate, normal or professional credit therefore,
and may be applied toward making a degree."
In addition to the courses outlined above one advanced
course of college grade will be offered in the following sub-
jects; provided, that a sufficient number of teachers apply
for the same:
English, Zoology, Agriculture, Latin, History, Education.
All who expect to occupy dormitory rooms, which in
every case are comfortable and commodious, should make
reservations as soon as possible.
For room reservations and general information as to the
Summer School, address Jno. A. Thackston.
