Glendale Unified School District

Glendale Unified School District administrators say they are tightening supervision of after-school sports, revising athletic guidelines and tearing down a football locker room and rebuilding it after eight high school football players were suspended last month for an alleged pattern of hazing. The eight boys pinned younger players on the locker room floor and poked them in the buttocks with sawed-off broom handles and a mini-baseball bat, according to school and police officials.

The percentage of ninth-graders who go on to complete high school has dropped at four of six area school districts, bucking a statewide trend of improved high school attendance, according to state statistics released this week. Administrators at each of the districts called the decreases minor, saying their schools overall achieved high four-year completion rates. The Antelope Valley Union High School District posted the greatest decline locally--3.5%--between 1994 and 1996.

Nature lovers, Mission College, the Skirball Center and political activists pushing to study the effect of secession from Los Angeles are among the biggest beneficiaries in the San Fernando Valley of the $76-billion state budget that appeared to be nearing a final form Monday night. The state spending plan, which stalled in its last phase in the Assembly, included $5 million for a major land purchase in the undeveloped Verdugo Mountains overlooking Burbank and Glendale.

School administrators across the San Fernando and Antelope valleys began sending home standardized test scores this week that revealed promising results for several school districts, but raised concerns for others. A review of five of the region's largest school systems--those outside the Los Angeles Unified School District--showed that students in most performed at or above the national average in reading, math and language.

Brandon Cranmer was once friends with a neighborhood kid who lives one house away on a cul-de-sac in Sagebrush, a sliver of a community on the western edge of La Canada Flintridge. "We used to see each other," said Brandon, who is 6 years old, as his face sagged into a frown. "But now I almost never see him."

In local elections ignored by near-record numbers of voters Tuesday, a high-stakes bond measure to pay for Los Angeles County's fire and paramedic services appeared headed for approval by the required two-thirds of the electorate, while labor unions won a majority of seats on a commission to rewrite the City Charter.

On Tuesday, voters in the Glendale Unified School District have the opportunity to create a legacy for their children and grandchildren by approving $186 million in bonds to repair, renovate and expand the district's 21 aging campuses. Similar to successful school bond measures in Burbank and Los Angeles, Measure K would give the district enough money to make necessary repairs to schools that are an average of 50 years old and in desperate need of attention.

On June 3 I hope the Glendale voting majority has the good sense, wisdom and boldness to vote "no" on the Glendale Unified School District's $186-million bond measure. There are several reasons to vote "no" on this planned huge ball-and-chain debt. For decades, the school board proved its negligence in fiscal responsibility and foresight toward building maintenance and capital expenditures. Very few Glendale voters will have the chance to buy these bonds and grow richer with the fat cats who make much of their big money off of government borrowings at interest.

School board member Lynda Rocamora ended her candidacy for reelection Friday, citing health problems and doctors' orders to cut down on her activities. Rocamora, 47, said she suffers from "chronic, irreversible orthopedic problems and severe spinal problems," resulting in severe pain that has worsened in recent years despite ongoing treatment. The condition is not life threatening, she said.
