The Burbank Unified School District has widened an optional attendance area within the city, giving parents of high school students there more of a choice in schools. The school board approved the change, which affects an area of Burbank that now has 400 high school students. It enlarges a smaller, optional attendance area set up two years ago. That area, bordered by Victory Boulevard and Empire Avenue, had been carved out of what was formerly Burbank High territory.

Attendance at Monterey High School--for students and teachers--has improved so much since a year-round schedule began a year ago that officials want to continue the experiment for another year. However, district officials say they are still not sure whether the new schedule--in which nine weeks of school are followed by three weeks off--has hurt or helped student performance.

A proposal to put a crowded Burbank elementary school on a year-round class schedule has ignited a debate that extends beyond education to the city's land-use policies.
