Boards of Managers wishing to nominate a Special Local Secretary for the own or district in which they are situated should apply to the Board of Education before the 23rd January.

When Boards of Managers are asked to nominate a Special Loca Secretary, a Special Committee of the several Chairmen, or an equal number of delegates from each Board of Managers, should be formed for the purpose. The meeting, of which at least one week's notice should be given, will

, as a rule, be convened by the Local Authority under the Technical Instruction Act (or by its Committee) when it supervises classes under the Board, or failing this by the Chairman of the School which has been longest in connection with the Board; but the meeting will elect its own Chairman. The nomination or recommendation must be sent to the Board by the Chairman of the Special Committee not later than 8th February. If the Special Committee fail to come to an agreement, or if it nominate a person of whom the Board cannot approve, the Board will appoint the Special Local Secretary: The appointment of the Special Local Secretary and Assistants rests with the Board, and is for one year only.

In the deliberations and voting of the Special Committee weight should be given to the opinions of the representatives of different Boards in proportion to the number of classes and the number of students superintended by each Board. The details for giving effect to this principle are left to the locality to decide.

When a Special Local Secretary has been appointed the Board corresponds with him alone on all subjects connected with the examinations. He must arrange for holding the examinations at convenient centres, subject to the approval of the Board, the number of these centres being as few as possible. The Special Local Secretary may act in the place of an assistant for any period on which there is an examination at but one centre. Otherwise, as he is charged with the general supervision of the examinations, he is not to act in the place of an assistant except in the case of an emergency.

The Special Local Secretary, after noting the application made to him under S XXVIII. on Form 119, must forward the forms and fees to the Board not later than the 10th March and 5th May respectively. If desired the lists of names of candidates for the Advanced and Ilonours Examinations may be retained by him until after the examinations; they must, however, be forwarded to the Board not later than the 30th June. The lists of names of candidates for the Elementary Examinations must accompany the Form 119. The Special Local Secretary, may, therefore, find it desirable to arrange with the managers to furnish their lists of such candidates in duplicate.

Whilst the Board make the appointment of a Special Local Secretary to manage

the whole business of the examinations, the financial arrangements involved are, subject to the provisions of the Directory, entirely under the control of the Special Committee by which the Special Local Secretary is nominated, and to which Special Committee he is required to submit his account. The Special Local Secretary shall account for the fees paid by the candidates for examination to the Special Committee, who will use theil

in helping to provide the moiety required from the locality for examination I erpenses to meet the grant given by the Board.

The Special Local Secretary is allowed a fee* of half a guinea for each period of three or four hours during which an examination in Science or Art, or in both, is to be held. When, however, he acts in place of an assistant he will receive no additional fee. He is also allowed a fee* of half a guinea for every 75 papers worked at the examination.

For attendance throughout an examination in a subject or subjects of Science or Art (or both) which extends over a period of 3 or 4 hours, each assistant who attends for that period is allowed a fee of half a yvineu. Where that period is materially exceeded, the Board may allow a double fee.

* These fees will not be paid by the Board in respect of Elementary Stage Examinations. When an examination in the Elementary Stage is held concurrently with an examination in the Advanced Stage the same Superintendents may supervise both examinotions provided the total number of candidates to which their supervision is restricted by the regulations is not exceeded. The cost of additional Superintendents necessitated by the regulations must be defrayed wholly from local sources.
