Trustees of the Antelope Valley Union High School District stood firm Thursday in their defiant stance to not administer the controversial CLAS test, virtually ensuring the district will be sued. Following a closed session with the school district's attorney that lasted more than two hours Thursday night, board members said they decided against reversing their April 20 decision not to give the test.

The state Department of Education will likely seek a court order next week mandating that the Antelope Valley Union High School District give the controversial CLAS test in the wake of the district's continuing refusal to administer the exam. It would be the first time for the department to take a school district to court over CLAS. Allan Keown, a Department of Education attorney, said a decision on whether to go to court will be made in the coming days.

Gang leader Tiburcio Vasquez was never a tagger. He preferred armed occupation and looting of entire towns. At least until he was hanged for murder in San Jose. On the plus side, he had exceptionally good handwriting and was apparently well-educated. Still, there was some grumbling that perhaps Vasquez, who died in 1875, might not be the best historic figure to use for naming a proposed new high school in Agua Dulce.

This election season, there is a new addition to the usual assortment of school bond measures, term limit propositions and fireworks proposals that often dominate local ballot questions: three cities -- including Los Angeles -- are asking voters to let them keep collecting a telephone users tax they have come to depend on heavily. In all, 10 cities and school districts in Los Angeles County have added local measures to the Feb. 5 presidential primary ballot.

It's another day, another gym class at Vasquez High School in Acton. Running. Calisthenics. Somebody constantly blowing a whistle. Seven miles away, just over the border in Palmdale, three Vasquez students are traveling their own trail to physical fitness. For this trio, gym class means driving half a mile down a rutted dirt road, past high-tension wires and tumbleweed, to perform handstands on top of a cantering horse named Belle.

Rain-weary Southern Californians may wake up to more wetness this morning, but take heart: The cold Pacific storm that arrived Friday and snarled traffic with rain and blanketed low-lying foothills with snow is the last one forecast for a while. The storm, the second to hit the area in three days, dumped more than half an inch of rain in much of Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties. Isolated lightning and thunder were reported.

Los Angeles Unified School District officials said Friday they will allow parents to exempt their children from taking state-mandated performance tests that have been praised for raising standards but attacked by some who say the questions are anti-family and inappropriate for children. Bill Rivera, spokesman for the state's largest school district, said the decision was reached before a Los Angeles Superior Court judge Friday exempted two San Fernando Valley students from taking the exams.
