It's 9:15 a.m., and students at Sierra Intermediate School are reading. So are teachers, secretaries and the principal. The head of plant maintenance, Charlie See, also is reading. He peruses "The Complete Handyman" as jazz music plays over the radio in his small office. The rest of the school is so silent that you can almost hear the pages of books being turned.
