A Connecticut educator has been named to head the troubled Chelsea, Mass., schools.

John Gawrys Jr., the superintendent of the Fairfield, Conn., schools, was named by Boston University officials to become the district's fourth superintendent in four years.

Mr. Gawrys succeeds Peter Greer, who resigned earlier this year to become headmaster of a private school in New Jersey.

In announcing the appointment, John Silber, the president of Boston University, said that Mr. Gawrys had committed himself to remain at least until the university's contract to manage the district expires in 1999.

Alan E. Farstrup has been named the new executive director of the International Reading Association.

Mr. Farstrup, the association's director of research and information services, has been its acting executive director since November 1991.
