Los Angeles Unified elementary schools made strong gains on the Stanford 9 test for the third consecutive year, but the district's high schools once again failed to improve, according to data released Tuesday. Students in grades 2 to 5 showed consistent improvement on the state's basic skills exam. That progress appeared to reach middle schools for the first time, where sixth-grade gains resembled those in the elementary schools.

After a year of testing and tutoring at nine of the northeast San Fernando Valley's poorest elementary schools, the percentage of students reading at or above grade level tripled to 33% last year, officials of a public-private endeavor to send more children to college announced Wednesday. The percentage of sixth-graders reading at or above grade level quadrupled at four middle schools in the same area--although it still remains at a dismally low 16%.

Los Angeles County officials first said they were sorry that school crossing guards had been left out of their budget. It was, they said, a mere slip of an accounting pencil, a mistake that they would try to correct. But on Thursday county officials said they would not provide any of the $1.8 million needed to pay for 180 crossing guards working intersections at 132 elementary schools.

Many of the kids had never held a golf club in their lives, but Friday they happily putted balls back and forth at El Cariso Golf Course. Nine fifth-graders from Haddon Avenue Elementary school in Pacoima came to learn to play golf as part of an innovative partnership with their school, the golf course and the office of Assemblyman Tony Cardenas (D-Sylmar). About 35 kids from the school will take free weekly lessons in small groups for about a month.

A Pacoima man who last month pleaded no contest to sexually molesting female students at Burton Elementary School was sentenced Monday to 120 days in jail and ordered to undergo psychological counseling, the prosecutor said. Jesus Fabian Hernandez, 27, was arrested in September after Burton officials notified police that seven girls, ages 8 to 11, had accused the former teacher's aide of improperly touching them on their legs, thighs and breasts while he assisted them at computer terminals.

From preschoolers, who dressed up as little birds in yellow paper hats and danced the los pajaritos , all the way up to sixth-graders who belted out a history of Mexican independence, students at O'Melveny Elementary School in San Fernando marked Mexican Independence Day on Wednesday with exuberance and pride. Dressed in the red, white and green of the Mexican flag, students shook maracas made of milk cartons filled with beans and waved colored streamers tied to their wrists.
