Work is scheduled to begin next week on a new elementary school that will help ease, but by no means alleviate, problems caused by a growing student population in the Anaheim City School District. "This is not going to solve the overcrowded conditions," said Maria-Elena Romero, assistant superintendent of business administration. But at least it will help, she said.

Trustees of the Anaheim Union High School District said this week that they will appeal a court ruling on a $174-million revitalization plan for the area around Disneyland. "The plan will have unmitigated impacts on the schools," said Michelle Ouellette, an attorney with Best, Best & Krieger, a Riverside firm representing the district. Ouellette said the city's environmental impact report on the so-called Anaheim Resort proposal does not adequately address that burden.

Reducing class sizes remains a goal of Anaheim City School District officials, but the challenge is finding enough classroom space. As Supt. Roberta Thompson put it, maintaining a ratio of 20 students per teacher in the first and second grades "is not only desirable, it's critical to improving instruction."

Despite a plea from its president, the Anaheim City School District Board of Education has rejected a proposal to reinstate a DARE officer cut from its new $65-million budget. The board voted 4 to 1 Tuesday night to hire three part-time math and science teachers at a cost of $80,000 instead of retaining the drug education officer. "What can I say--I think it's wrong," board President Lou Lopez, a city police officer, said after the vote. "The DARE program is an important role model for students."

In its ongoing battle against overcrowded schools, the Anaheim City School District has proposed placing three more campuses on a year-round schedule beginning July 1 under a plan to be considered by the Board of Education tonight.

Ten Orange County agencies, including six school districts, are among those being awarded newly provided state money to start, or expand, day-care centers for latchkey children. Latchkey children are those who go home from school to empty houses, if they are able to go home at all. A state study has estimated there are 800,000 such children in the state. New legislation provides $15.3 million a year for before- and after-school care programs for latchkey children, aged 6 to 13.

A contract between the Anaheim City School District and its 780 non-teaching employees has won unanimous approval by the district's trustees. The pact for the 1995-96 school year gives the employees a 2.5% pay raise and increased dental benefits. Management employees received the same pay increase and a dental insurance package. "I thought it was a very fair agreement--equitable with supervision," said John Dawson, president of the California School Employees Assn., Chapter 54.

In exchange for dropping its lawsuit against the $3-billion Disneyland Resort, the Anaheim City School District will get more than $2 million up front and additional income later, according to an agreement approved Tuesday. The district will receive a flat $1 million payment, plus a $1.2 million development fee from Disney at the start of the project's construction. And it will share the increased property tax revenue generated from two future redevelopment projects in the city.
