A lawsuit filed for a white first-grader threatens school desegregation policies in Charlotte, N.C., where a landmark ruling 30 years ago cleared the way for busing to integrate public schools nationwide. The federal trial, set to open here today, is the latest attack on racial quotas and busing plans drawn up since the late 1960s by local school boards to end segregation.

Interim Supt. Ramon C. Cortines on Thursday said he will stay at the Los Angeles school district past his July 1 departure date if his replacement asks for his help to ensure a smooth transition. "But we'll have to see who gets hired," Cortines said. "That person may not want me to stick around." Members of the Los Angeles Board of Education, which is expected to appoint a new schools chief sometime next week, said the three candidates interviewed so far have said they would want to consult him.

Frustrated by the small pool of serious candidates, the Los Angeles Board of Education may extend its Monday deadline for selecting a new superintendent, district officials said Wednesday. The board still hopes to name a new schools chief by Monday so that he could help interim Supt. Ramon C. Cortines appoint leaders to run 11 mini-districts being created under a reorganization to take effect July 1. But several factors have conspired to make the final stages of the search especially difficult.

The Los Angeles Board of Education on Sunday concluded its interviews of candidates for superintendent, narrowing the field to three finalists who are actively seeking the job. Deliberations are scheduled to continue behind closed doors this morning, but board members were backing away from a self-imposed deadline to make the selection today. "I'm not sure about that," board President Genethia Hayes said.

The Board of Education on Tuesday unanimously agreed to appoint former Colorado Gov. Roy Romer superintendent of the Los Angeles school district, which would make him the first non-educator to lead the huge and beleaguered district. Looking relaxed and confident, the 71-year-old Romer said at a news conference that he relishes the opportunity to rebuild the district and lift the educational prospects of its 711,000 students.
