Mrs. Orr told the trustees that in comparisons of reading abilities of students in the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, that students fared slightly better in 1974-75 under the open concept than they did in the closed concept of teaching in 1973-74. April 1975 testing showed 28 percent of the students above average compared to 21 percent in April 1974; '52 percent were average com- pared to 62 percent average in 1974, and 20 percent were below average compared to 17 percent below average. Mrs. Orr pointed out that tests are given in September and April, but that September scores are always low com- pared to April scores because the student has not been studing during the summer months. She produced a chart showing how students tested in April of 1975 compared to national averages. She indi- cated that three months behind or ahead of grade was not considered significant in evaluating test scores, but anything over or under three was.

In other action at the Monday night meeting, the school trustees heard a report from Supt. Jack Murray on the status of the pending lawsuit by members of the Fair Tax Association. Murray said that the group had changed attorneys and that they are now represented by Dawson, Dawson, Smith and Sodd. Matthew Dawson, of the firm has been in contact with the district, Murray said, and he anticipates some action by the group in the near future.
