Upper Dublin's losses were $26,130, said a district spokesman.
About $250,000 is said to be owed to the districts involved. The suit is being coordinated through the solicitor for the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit.
The dispute involved money spent on special-education aides between 1985 and 1987. The districts maintain that they had included the costs in special- education budgets that were approved by the Education Department and had to assume the costs when the department did not pay them back after capping the amount of reimbursement.
The Montgomery County Community College board of trustees has approved an honors program as an addition to the college curriculum.
Courses would be offered to students based on their SAT scores, high school grade point averages, previous semester grades, faculty recommendations or personal interviews.
The program, according to Ernest Cronan, dean of academic affairs, "is designed for academically advanced students, to provide them with a challenging program."
The program, which will use the present faculty, would consist of an interdisciplinary seminar and honors sections of courses. About 15 to 20 students would be enrolled, he said.
Cronan said he hoped the honors program could be instituted for the fall 1991 semester.
GIVING THAT IMPORTANT MEAL
Myers Elementary School students in the Cheltenham School District have created a true breakfast of champions.
Answering an appeal for low-sugar or no-sugar breakfast cereals from a local women's shelter, a committee formed by the Parent-Teacher Organization under Maureen Hicks sent 40 grocery bags filled with more than 200 pounds of cereal to Laurel House, a Montgomery County temporary shelter for mothers and children escaping domestic violence.
The students, faculty and staff at Myers figure the 180 boxes equal about 2,160 bowls with which to start the day off right.
