The $23-million budget approved this week by the Brea Olinda Unified School District trustees includes funds for elementary school computers and a part-time principal at Olinda Elementary School. Although costs will be higher in some areas for the 1995-96 school year, officials said, the district's total revenue is expected to increase by about $480,000 above last year's through additional student and day-care funding, as well as cost-of-living increases from the state.

Parents in the Brea-Olinda Unified School District will have to pay for their children to take the bus to school starting this fall as part of an overall budget-trimming plan approved by the district board of trustees this week. The school board voted Monday night to charge parents $100 for the first student, $75 for the second student and $50 for the third student to a maximum of $225 per family per year in an effort to trim about $1 million from the district's 1992-93 budget.

The Board of Education voted 5 to 2 to approve local cable television broadcasting of their meetings the first and third Wednesday nights of each month on channel 3. Dissenting board member Frank Davies said he was concerned that the estimated $15,000 a year going toward the broadcast would be spent on something few people would watch. Frank Conneli, assistant superintendent of business, said cable television broadcasts of the meetings should begin in four to six weeks.

Brea Olinda Unified School District board members have decided to see if the city approves a plan to develop Olinda Heights before joining a consortium led by the Cal State Fullerton Foundation that favors low-income housing for university and school district employees. The City Council has yet to consider the project, and trustees feared that by joining the consortium now, city officials would consider the move as an endorsement of the development.

The Brea-Olinda Unified School District began classes this week with enough money to hire six new teachers, give a onetime 3% pay bonus and buy new textbooks and other materials for student use. School board members voted 6 to 0 this week to adopt the $21.3-million budget for the 1993-94 fiscal year. They managed to spare the district from making any cuts and also put about $3 million in reserve. Board member Leonard MacKain was absent at Monday's meeting.

Brea students got a half-day off from classes Friday so their teachers could learn a lesson about AIDS. About 450 teachers and other employees of the Brea-Olinda Unified School District gathered in the performing arts center of Brea-Olinda High School to attend a seminar on AIDS awareness led by Beverly Bradley, supervisor of health programs for the San Francisco Unified School District and former health consultant for the Orange County Department of Education.

A decision by the Brea-Olinda Unified School District to replace a high school assistant principal but not a retiring guidance counselor highlights the painful choices that arise when school districts have to make budget cuts. In a move to save the cash-strapped district about $30,000 a year, the school board voted last week to replace retiring Brea-Olinda High School guidance counselor Wilma Sauer with a para-professional.

Students who either have symptoms of AIDS or who have been exposed to the disease could be barred from attending Brea's schools under a new policy adopted this week. The Brea-Olinda Unified School District Board will bar students with AIDS symptoms, as well as students whose immediate family members have AIDS, until the school district's medical team and board have evaluated each case, according to Assistant Supt. Pete Boothroyd.

The Brea Olinda Unified School District this week approved a policy prohibiting any district employee or trustee from changing a student's grade without a written or verbal explanation from the teacher who assigned the grade. The new policy comes after months of investigation into a grade-changing scandal in which hundreds of Brea Olinda High School students' grades were altered without teacher approval--an illegal practice.
