Minutes of the February 26th meeting were read and approved.

Mr. Bardin stated that during the meeting on February 26th,
the Commission asked Dr. Pierce to develop a skeleton plan for
combining the two school systems and to present it at the next
Commission meeting. —

Dr. Pierce said he had prepared a rough draft which he thought
could serve as the bases for the final report of the Commission and
as a resource document for speeches, discussion groups, news releases
and related purposes. He invited Commission members to ask questions
or make comments as he reviewed the draft.

After many points which might be included, omitted or changed
in the report had been discussed, Mr. Bardin called attention to
the purpose of the meeting. He stated that the Commission was to
receive the report and take appropriate action so that it could be
reviewed with Atlanta and Fulton County 3oards of Education and the
representatives from Fulton and DeKalb Counties.

Dr. Jerry Miller, Jr. then made the motion that the Commission
express its confidence in the work Dr. Pierce has done thus far;
that Dr. Pierce take into account the many points discussed during
the meeting and rewrite the draft and that a copy be sent to the
members of the Commission before the next meeting and if approved
by the Commission, the report will then be discussed with the
Atlanta and Fulton County Boards of Education and the representatives
from Fulton and DeKalb Counties.

The motion was seconded by Mr. Walley Stewart and passed

The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 P. M.
