Students and former colleagues of a Brea Olinda High School psychology teacher are hoping the school district will reverse a decision that has left Lesley B. Rodriguez jobless. The veteran teacher, who had retired in 1991 and returned as a part-time teacher a year and a half ago, is not coming back in the fall because Brea Olinda Unified School District administrators recently decided against renewing her contract.

Students and teachers will return this fall to greatly improved access to the Internet and other computer technologies. "It's a significant wiring project," Assistant Supt. Peter Boothroyd said of the district's largest undertaking this summer. "It affects every classroom, every teacher and every kid." The $400,000 project was funded by federal grants and state lottery returns saved for the past two years, said Gary D. Goff, assistant superintendent.

The board chose Reed from six candidates to complete the 1 1/2 years remaining on the term of former trustee Carol L. Norum, board member Kenneth A. Kegel said. Reed, who is president and CEO of Standard Industries in La Mirada, particularly impressed the board with his professional background and community involvement, Kegel said.

Carol L. Norum, a member of the Brea Olinda Unified School District Board of Education since 1994, has resigned, officials announced Tuesday. Norum, who has spent 29 years in various aspects of education, said she bought a home in nearby Placentia and must give up her position on the board. Norum said her move was prompted by her son Jim's plans to leave home to attend college in the fall and the sudden death of her husband, Richard, of a heart attack last year.

Brea Olinda Unified School District trustees Monday night unanimously approved a new school calendar for Brea Canyon High School, which will give students one-week vacations between six-week blocks of school. The one-year pilot program will begin in August, said Principal Bob Phelps. Phelps said the breaks will reduce the likelihood of student burnout and keep students at the continuation high school interested in school.
