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.

Just months after making it tougher for students to enroll in high school honors courses, Brea Olinda Unified School District trustees this week eased the rules. The new policy is more like the district's long-standing "open access" policy, in which parents could place their children in honors courses without having to meet grade requirements or get teacher consent. The policy, however, resulted in some problems, Brea Olinda High School teachers and district officials said.
