'Best education' problems
motivate determined Administration
To provide curricula and facilities that would give the com-
munity's students their best possible chance of keeping in step
with mankind's constantly expanding knowledge about his uni-
verse, Livonia's hard-working, dedicated, seven-member Board
met at least four times each month, for many hours each time.
Early in the year Superintendent Benton Yates announced
his retirement following the 1969-70 school year. The Board
named Rolland H. Upton as his successor, and elevated Mr. Upton
from Assistant to Deputy Superintendent so that he could work
closely with Mr. Yates before assuming the superintendency.
Old familiar faces comprised Franklin's local administra-
tion during this school year, new faces in the building were
those Churchill High School personnel, who shared Franklin
facilities until their new building is ready next year.

Individualized resource centers for English, Social Studies,
and Mathematics provided one dream-come-true 'For the imagin-
ative Instructional Materials personnel in i968-69. Department
officers were located handily near their own study areas.
Back in its original role as general library was the round
brick room at the iunction of the four main corridors. The
Communications Lab served language students and all other
classes that frequently use tapes and records. lt housed both
the permanent tape library and daily lecture tapes.
Congeniality characterized the Non-Book Room, relocated in
room 124 next to the East Lobby. One of its features was a
Tuesday after-school movie, free both of charge and popcorn.
Stacks of the round library provided the right environment for Junior Kathy
Casey ileftl. Mrs. Slack presided over the Communications Lab, operating the
tape deck as her assistant, Sophomore Tom O'Malley, monitored.
