Dozens of Santana High School students appeared at the San Diego County Superior Court in El Cajon for Williams' arraignment.

The school locker, long feared as a repository of drugs and weapons, is making a comeback. Some administrators are returning the metal boxes to campus, figuring it's better than creating a generation of students with back problems. In one Orange County school district, a board member who watched a student wobble and fall over from the weight of her backpack has proposed reinstalling lockers in middle schools.

Had she chosen the ordinary life of most of her classmates, it's doubtful anyone would remember much about the smiling blonde whose picture appears between Caroline Baeza and Bob Barker on Page 38 in the 1941 Van Nuys High School yearbook. After all, Norma Jeane Baker only attended the school for slightly more than half of her sophomore year--between fall 1941 and spring 1942.

A student on a remote Indian reservation in Minnesota burst through the metal detector at his high school Monday and shot dead five classmates, a teacher and a security guard before turning the gun on himself, authorities said. Before his rampage at the school, the student shot and killed his grandparents at their home on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, authorities said. His grandfather, Sgt. Daryl Lussier, had served for more than 35 years on the Red Lake police force.

Re "A lot new under the hood in high school auto shop," Oct. 28 It's about time we restored auto shop and other "less academic" courses to the high school curriculum. As a former math teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I know that many students are not well served by forcing them into college-prep classes. However, almost everyone can benefit from practical courses such as auto shop.

A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death inside a Milford, Conn., high school just hours before the junior prom on Friday, officials said. Maren Sanchez died from her wounds at Bridgeport Hospital, Milford Police Chief Keith Mello told reporters. “We are obviously devastated by the loss of one of our students,” School Superintendent Elizabeth Feser said at the news conference from the scene. A 16-year-old boy has been taken into custody, officials said. His name is being withheld because of his age. Students at the school told reporters that the incident was caused by a dispute over a date for the junior prom, originally scheduled for Friday night but canceled because of the stabbing.

For all the dangers football poses to its players, the sport still represents hope to thousands of young men. Judd Ehrlich's persuasive but slight documentary "We Could Be King" movingly argues for the necessity of high-school athletics, especially in low-income communities, where pigskin is a key tool educators have in encouraging would-be dropouts to stay in school. After the Philadelphia school board closes 37 schools and merges Martin Luther King High with its Germantown rivals, heroic Ed Dunn oversees the union of the two football teams.

One of the greatest gifts for a teenager is when a grandfather is able to live long enough to offer life lessons that can be cherished forever. Grant Hockin, a standout senior pitcher at La Verne Damien, was the recipient of such influential advice from the man he called "grandpa," Harmon Killebrew, a baseball Hall of Famer from the Minnesota Twins who hit 573 home runs in 22 major-league seasons. "He always told me to treat everyone with respect and don't take anything for granted," Hockin said.

College football recruiters have their GPS devices powered on as they begin visiting high schools to evaluate players over the next month. Let me provide a few suggestions on players who have been overlooked so far. Maybe they don't fit a height-weight requirement. Maybe they were injured last season. Maybe they don't participate in seven-on-seven all-star passing tournaments. Maybe they play multiple sports. Whatever the reason for not receiving early buzz, these players will be standouts in the fall, and it's far more relevant how someone performs in a real game compared with how they look running around a red cone.

Orange County prosecutors will consider filing criminal charges against 11 former Corona del Mar High School students and a tutor accused in an alleged cheating scheme in which grades were altered and class exams accessed. Newport Beach police investigated the alleged scheme, which used log-in names and passwords stolen from teachers' computers, and will forward their evidence to the Orange County district attorney's office. All 11 students eventually signed expulsion agreements that banished them from the high school but allowed them to transfer to other campuses in the Newport-Mesa Unified School district.

Authorities in Yucaipa have arrested a high school Spanish teacher on suspicion of having sex with a 16-year-old student, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. An administrator at Yucaipa High School told deputies Wednesday about a possible inappropriate relationship between the male student and Sheila Heacock, 44. The next day, detectives contacted the teen, who told them the alleged sexual abuse had occurred between January and March of this year. Heacock, an 18-year veteran of the school district, was arrested and booked on one felony count each of oral copulation with a minor, penetration by a foreign object with a minor, contact with a minor to commit an offense, and unlawful sexual intercourse.
