FREDONIA TO LOOK AT PREKINDERGARTEN

The Fredonia Board of Education is expected to decide in February whether to begin a prekindergarten program in September.

The average enrollment in kindergarten in the past six years was 131 pupils, Leonard Vento, principal of the Wheelock School, told the School Board on Monday night.

Vento said funding for any prekindergarten program is not definite yet, but "I am looking at alternative funding beyond the local taxpayer."

In another report, Superintendent James Coon said the governor's budget cuts Fredonia's state aid by $79,000 and cuts the $100,000 grant for the alternative high school program in the former Eagle Street School.

The board approved the advanced music performance program. Students' grades in the classes in this program will be weighted as honor grades in computing the cumulative grade point average.
