On some campuses, there were tears. On others, relief. But frustration was another overriding sentiment at many Southern California high schools Friday, as officials scrambled to pin down whether their students were aboard the ill-fated bus that crashed in flames en route to a college tour. In Los Angeles Unified, Supt. John Deasy said a number of issues complicated efforts to determine which students were on the bus to Humboldt State. A day after the fiery crash, district officials still had not accounted for all 19 students from 16 high schools who took the trip.

When you walk onto the court at Sacramento's Power Balance Pavilion, formerly known as Arco Arena, the three-point line looks appealing to those high school players known for making threes. Then the game starts and they begin to understand how difficult it is to shoot in an arena setting. That's going to be one of the biggest challenges for the Southern California teams Friday and Saturday in the state basketball championships. "Whomever makes the most layups and jump shots is going to be victorious," said Los Angeles Windward Coach Miguel Villegas, whose team faces Richmond Salesian on Saturday in the Division IV boys' final.

At least nine people died Thursday after a bus carrying Los Angeles-area high school students planning to tour Humboldt State was struck head-on by a FedEx truck on Interstate 5 in Northern California, causing a fire that badly burned both vehicles. For unknown reasons, the truck crossed over the landscaped center median and crashed into the tour bus, which was traveling north on I-5 near the town of Orland in Glenn County, according to the California Highway Patrol. The drivers of the bus and truck were killed, officials said.

Head bowed, eyes puffy, 15-year-old Charles Andrew Williams was formally charged with murder and attempted murder Wednesday, hours after shaken students began returning to the suburban high school that he allegedly turned into a bloody shooting gallery two days before. 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 South Bay schools superintendent who attracted scrutiny for his $674,559 pay was placed on administrative leave this week, pending an internal investigation. The Centinela Valley Union High School District board voted 5-0 to suspend Supt. Jose Fernandez during an abruptly called, closed-door meeting at the Centinela Valley Center for the Arts in Lawndale on Wednesday evening. Fernandez's earnings last year surpassed the compensation of those leading the nation's largest school systems.

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. - A teenager charged in a high school stabbing rampage "just doesn't fit the mold" of someone who could be harboring such rage, his lawyer said Thursday as the boy's classmates fought to recover from life-threatening wounds and thanked the friends who came to their aid. At a hospital news conference, one of the wounded, Brett Hurt, summed up the actions of his friend Gracey Evans, who was with him Wednesday as the assailant plunged...

The Arcadia Invitational will be filled with terrific athletes. It has become one of the best high school sporting events in Southern California. Hurdlers must have a fearless gene in their body, and junior Torrey Atkins of Menifee Heritage High shows every indication he has one. He attacks each hurdle with a focus and determination that allow him to fly over obstacles as if they weren't in his way. "I feel I'm shooting out like a rocket," he said. Two weeks ago, he ran a personal-best time of 14.17 seconds in the 110 high hurdles at the Mt. Carmel Invitational.

 Shot putter Amir Ali Patterson of Crespi failed on Tuesday to convince a judge to issue an injunction that would have allowed him to compete for the Celts this season, ending his high school career. Patterson had run out of athletic eligibility but sought a hardship waiver from the Southern Section. It was denied. He finished second last season at the state championships and has signed with UCLA. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

Without a returning starter, Oak Park (22-11) was barely a blip on the radar screen as a possible Southern Section champion when the season started. By season's end, the Eagles were the Division 3A champion, winners of the first basketball title in the school's history. For being able to rebuild and reload without relying on transfer students, Aaron Shaw has been selected the coach of the year by The Times. "We struggled early in the season, and it took us a little bit of time to figure out our roles," Shaw said.
