Partnership--The Maine Way.
Benka, John T.
Community involvement in Main Township High School District 207 has come to be known as "Partnership--The Maine Way." Maine has acknowledged that in order to shape the public good will and understanding, large numbers of parents, students, teachers, and citizens must be included personally. Maine looks at 1973-74 with pride concerning three significant educational developments. First, a $6.5 million bond referendum for building construction succeeded in early December by a large majority. Then, during the second semester "Partnership--The Maine Way" resulted in two successful and innovative educational concepts. One--entitled "Rites of Spring"--was a two day fine arts festival conducted at Maine Township North aimed at providing general exposure of the fine arts through community participation and attendance at festival activities. The other--named "Let's Talk"--was a two day educational opportunity held at Maine Township High School West for business and industries in the Des Plaines community to point out, by display and personal contact, its leadership to the community as an educational resource.
