Bus service in the Anaheim City Elementary School District was disrupted Wednesday when half of the driving staff called in sick, causing extended delays and in some cases forcing parents to drive their children to school. Dr. John L. Grogan, the district's assistant superintendent for personnel, said the drivers were apparently participating in a sickout related to a labor dispute between the district and the California School Employees Assn.

Anaheim City School trustees said Tuesday that they will take no action on allegations that one of their members does not live within the district. In February, community activist Duane Roberts filed a complaint with the board and the district attorney alleging that Trustee Don Garcia's main residence is in Newport Beach. Roberts said Garcia's personal checks are printed with a Corona del Mar address and that the Anaheim home where Garcia says he lives shows no sign of habitation.

Anaheim City School District officials said Wednesday that they have sought legal advice to see whether they "have an obligation to take action" on an allegation that board member Donald L. Garcia filed false information about his residency when he sought the seat last fall. A community activist charged at this week's board meeting that Garcia, a physician, and his wife live with their two children on Serra Drive in Corona del Mar, but that Garcia said his address was 410 W. Vermont Ave.

While many county school districts hire private security guards or ask local police officers to patrol their campuses during off-hours, districts in Anaheim are using park rangers, a new tool that other districts say they may consider. "We try to help people rather than be out there looking for the bad guys," said Christopher George, a recreation service specialist for the city and a senior park ranger. "A lot of times security guards can be intimidating.

Despite significant language and income hurdles, students in three of Orange County's larger school districts--Garden Grove, Santa Ana and Anaheim City--pulled up their scores on the state's standardized test. In Garden Grove, scores rose districtwide, landing at or just below the national median. Nearly all Santa Ana districtwide scores--and every districtwide mark in Anaheim--still fell short of the national median, according to partial Stanford 9 results released Tuesday.

The Anaheim City School District on Monday sued the city of Anaheim and the Walt Disney Co. over the proposed Disneyland Resort, but city and district officials said later in the day that they were close to an out-of-court settlement. The suit, which was filed in Orange County Superior Court, contends that the resort would create further overcrowding in schools and drain already limited district resources. "We believe we are close to resolving this issue," said District Supt.

However, individual districts have been receiving and releasing their overall scores, which are believed to be accurate. Here are the scores most recently released by school systems in the county.

Under the gun to comply with a voter-approved law that dismantles bilingual education, some Orange County school districts are using a loophole to delay by weeks--or even months--the start of English-only instruction. Proposition 227, the successful anti-bilingual education initiative, is scheduled to take effect when classes begin next week.

The Anaheim City Council's decision to limit how long residents of a motel can stay is likely to have severe consequences for students and the schools they attend, parents and educators say. Last week, the council voted to impose an occupancy limit of 30 days total within any 90-day period at the Lincoln Inn in West Anaheim.

There is a brief block of time in the day when Jill Vaughn, an Anaheim mother of three, is not driving her children to or from a school. In order to reduce class sizes to 20 in first and second grades, the Anaheim Unified School District is making the most of what space it has by staggering enrollment and having students arrive and leave in shifts. Children start school at 7:45 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. They leave at 1 and 4 p.m.

The post-bilingual age began in Los Angeles schools Monday with uncertainty, improvisation and a good many hand gestures--but seemingly none of the chaos predicted by apprehensive educators. And in Orange County, two of the school systems with the largest enrollments of immigrant children continued to offer primary-language instruction.

Newly released test results from five Orange County school districts further confirm a pattern: Schools whose students speak limited English score more poorly than those whose students are fluent in the language.

Susan Preus will once again serve on the Anaheim City School District Board of Education. Preus, a 42-year-old homemaker and former teacher, was appointed to the board in 1996 but failed to win election to the seat later that same year. This time, she replaces Harald G.
