The first signs of opposition to Supt. Ramon C. Cortines' plan to reorganize the Los Angeles Unified School District surfaced Thursday as the head of an association of school principals suggested that the time may have come to break up the sprawling district. "I don't see any need to keep the district in one piece if the interim superintendent is saying it's no good," said Eli Brent, director of Associated Administrators of Los Angeles.

I was filled with profound indignation after reading the article about Helen Bernstein, president of United Teachers of Los Angeles ("Playing Tough in Hard Times," Nov. 21). In these days of financial crisis both in the public and private sectors, it does little for the professionalism of educators to hear only vindictive outbursts from union leaders. It is understandable that UTLA members would be angry when their salaries are being cut; the members of our association, AALA (Associated Administrators of Los Angeles)

The union representing administrators in the Los Angeles Unified School District has agreed to postpone a temporary pay increase promised to them last year, officials said. Attorneys for the Associated Administrators of Los Angeles signed the agreement with district officials Monday, giving up a 3% salary increase totaling $1 million that would have been paid them July through mid-September. The money will instead be tacked onto the administrators' paychecks for the 1992-93 school year.

Re "Dubious 'Stings' at Schools," editorial, Aug 20: It is unfortunate that the Los Angeles Unified School District's chief legal counsel has chosen to weigh in against the continuation of the LAPD-LAUSD "School Buy" program. Certain assumptions about the program made by Kevin Reed and The Times vary from the facts: The LAUSD School Police Department is involved. Arrests of significant drug providers in the community have occurred. Drug availability and trafficking have been reduced on campuses.

At Mark Twain Middle School in Los Angeles, a blooming garden serves as a classroom. Students learn math by measuring the growth of wheat, ancient history by building a Mesopotamian-style irrigation system and the science of evaporation, evolution and genetics by watching their garden grow. At lunchtime, they may be found snacking on pasta tossed in a sauce featuring just-picked tomatoes and basil. Aiming to expand such links between classroom and cafeteria, the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education voted this week to further strengthen what is regarded as one of the leading school nutrition programs in the nation.

The board Monday gave final approval to a two-year drive by principals to form their own union. Associated Administrators of Los Angeles, representing about 1,750 principals, assistant principals and middle managers at administrative offices, will begin contract negotiations with school officials this year. Previously, the administrators were represented by the superintendent's office, but they began seeking more autonomy--and power--after the May, 1989, teachers strike.

The Los Angeles Unified School District and the union representing 2,200 administrators have reached a tentative contract settlement providing pay and benefits increases totaling about 14%. If approved, the three-year contract would cost the district $18 million. The funds have already been allocated in the budget and would require no cuts in instructional programs, Supt. Roy Romer said. The administrators' raise is about 1% less than the raise the district has agreed to pay its teachers.

Candidates seeking election to the Los Angeles school board in the April 11 election accused incumbents Roberta Weintraub and Julie Korenstein on Wednesday of failing to properly represent their San Fernando Valley constituents. "I'm one of those parents who has lost faith in the system," challenger Michael Kaliczak said at a candidate forum. "We need more normal people like me to run this district."
