Mrs. Garret(, a teacher at Malakoff Schools for three and one-hlf years, said the continuing contract was like a reward and served as mor! support for employees. Malakoff Schools have offered con- tinuing contracts since 1967, Ms. Brown said, and to take away the contract would be a step backward. "We request a positive step by the board," she said. High School teacher Tom Wylie told trustees that he appreciated the raise above state scale that trustees allowed this year and expressed hope that the increase would continue. Board president Joe Cox told the teachers tht their talks had "shed light to me, for one, on wht you wnt as teachers. "We would like to see better facilities and better pay for teachers for the hard job you have," Cox said. "We will exmine what we can do," he con. tinued, "but we are not a wealthy district.

Trustee Ron Speed told Trimble that he didn't want to look at a person's evaluation because they were black or white, but to evaluate grounds for hiring or re-hiring. Trimble requested thaf the board give the evaluation of the particular black teacher in question consideration and asked that if possible she he given another chance.
