Part V. contains a selection of the General Regulations for the organization, government, and discipline of Common Schools, and also for the religious instruction which may be given therein.

Part VI. contains a programme of the order and classification of studies prescribed for the Common Schools of Upper Canada. Those for the Grammar Schools will be found on pp. 106-117 of the Chief Superintendent's Annual Report for 1858. As some modification will likely be made in them during this year, they are not inserted in this pamphlet.

Parts VII. VIII. and IX. contain information and notices in regard to the Educational Department, Museum, and Depositories, which will be found of use to parties concerned.

A copy of this pamphlet is sent to each Board of Grammar and Common School Trustees, and also to the Local Superintendent in each City, Town and Incorporated Village, as required by law. Parties requiring extra copies, can be supplied at the terms mentioned on the cover.
