As part of a plan to reduce violence at city schools, the Los Angeles Unified School District proposed hiring 22 additional campus police officers and 300 campus security aides at a school safety hearing Monday. The extra security personnel--tagged at a cost of $3.5 million a year--would supplement the district's 295-member force and would place an officer at each high school and middle school campus.

In no other area of Los Angeles are so many creative, innovative approaches to education under way, or stakes and expectations higher. "We're hoping it's the dawn of a new day," said Westside board member Mark Slavkin.
