Ted Kozlik has been elected president of the National Association of Pupil Services Administrators, a Pittsford, N.Y.-based group that provides research and information about guidance counseling, school psychology services, social work, discipline issues, and other matters to its 800 members.

Mr. Kozlik, 58, who is the assistant superintendent for pupil personnel services for the 5,700-student Westfield public school system in Westfield, N.J., is serving a one-year term as president that ends in January 2004.

Richard D. Laine has been named the director of education programs for the Wallace-Reader’s Digest Funds.
