Scope and Content Note

Microfilmed records include minutes and newsletters of the board of education of the Shoreham-Wading River Central School District (1973-1992). Also microfilmed were district clerk's record books for the former Wading River schools, Town of Riverhead Common School District 1 (1861-1941, 1950-1968) and Union Free School District 1 (1968-1973); and the former Shoreham schools, town of Brookhaven Common School District 10 (1949-1952) and Union Free School District 10 (1952-1973).

Most of this film is practically illegible because of poor contrast.

Custodial History

This microfilm was produced by a grant awarded and administered by SARA's Local Government Records Bureau for the 1992 grant cycle. Grantees submitted two copies of each roll of project film: a silver copy for secure storage at the State Records Center; and a duplicate copy, containing only non-restricted records, for public use at the State Archives research room.

Use copies of rolls containing restricted records are not maintained by the Archives, and are withdrawn from public use at time of accessioning. Security copies of such rolls are held at the State Records Center and are subject to restrictions under law.

Restricted film was so marked and use copies were weeded at time of accession; eighteen rolls (use copy only) containing restricted records were returned to the creating agency; 50 rolls of master negatives (security copy) were sent to the State Records Center.
