EDEN PUPILS DO WELL IN STANDARDIZED TESTING

Eden Central School students achieved average or above-average results in the state's comprehensive achievement testing, the School Board was told this week.

Superintendent Donald D. Fregelette noted that the district's math results had shown improvement and that even better results are anticipated next year.

In other business, the board approved setting up a class in February by the district's continuing education program for juniors and seniors planning to take the SAT exams.

The board has received about 50 applications for the superintendent's post that Fregelette will vacate next year.

Supervisory District Superintendent Gary W. Barr, who is assisting in the search, has met with school trustees to receive their guidelines. Barr will winnow the applications to eight. The list then will be shortened to three, and the board will conduct final interviews in February, Fregelette said.

Before the regular meeting, a plaque bearing the names of the 53 school trustees who have served since 1940 was installed in the Junior-Senior High School.

Board members also visited the school's science room to see a new laser projector that can display or explain in 30-second sequences any of 50,000 bits of science-oriented information.
