A Buena Park mother has filed a lawsuit against the local school district alleging that her blind son was injured after a school bus driver dropped the kindergartner off at a street stop with no supervision. Allen Collins suffered severe cuts on his face when he ran or was pushed into a sagging chain-link fence near the bus stop April 6, said Patrick Saboorian, the family's attorney. He said that the child, now 7, was alone for two or three minutes before his mother arrived to pick him up.

But Principal Jack Hay was decidedly excited that his school's standardized test scores are up--way up. "My first reaction was, 'Whoa, baby!' " Hay said. The cause of his exuberance? The Buena Park school posted double-digit percentile jumps in 15 of the 20 subjects and grade levels tested on the state's high-stakes standardized test.

A sharply divided Buena Park school board voted 3 to 2 Monday to cancel a contract with a private day-care center that is leasing four classrooms at Gordon H. Beatty Elementary School. A facilities planning committee recently reported that the school would need more classrooms to accommodate expected enrollment growth in the fall. As part of the solution, the board also voted to return transfer students from other schools and other districts to their neighborhood campuses.
