Faced with the problem of deciding what to do about surplus school sites, the City Council said Monday it will seek a joint meeting next month with the Planning Commission and representatives of five school districts. The five districts all have schools in Huntington Beach, and the districts together now have 20 closed school sites. In some cases the districts are seeking to sell or lease that surplus property. The Planning Commission, however, has turned down two such requests recently.

The Huntington Beach City School District hasn't had a school-bond election in nearly 40 years. And the Laguna Beach Unified School District has never had one in its more than 120-year history. Both streaks will end June 5 when voters in those districts go to the polls in special elections. The $25-million Huntington Beach City School District bond measure faces minor grass-roots opposition. The $39-million Laguna Beach bond measure has no organized opposition.

Just days before voters will be asked to approve a $123-million school facilities bond, Huntington Beach Union High School Supt. Susan Roper said volunteers are making no extra efforts to raise voter awareness or campaign for a yes vote on Tuesday. No flurry of phone calls, no house visits, not one additional mailer will go out to the 158,000 registered voters served by the district in Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach and Westminster, Roper said.

Voters' rejection Tuesday of a bond measure for the Huntington Beach Union High School District took school officials by surprise and dealt a serious blow to a district beset by sinking buildings, leaking roofs, outdated bathrooms and deteriorating electrical and plumbing systems. Supporters had expected the $123-million bond measure to pass after similar efforts succeeded in the Capistrano and Santa Ana Unified districts earlier this month.

Trustees in the Huntington Beach Union High School District on Tuesday approved a $62-million operating budget for the coming school year. Trustees made about $2.5 million in cuts this spring to accommodate an anticipated shortfall in state revenue based on the daily attendance of students. "Our best guess is that we'll get about a 5% cut from the state and we've planned for that, but there's no way of telling what the state will do," School Board Vice President Jerry Sullivan said Wednesday.

About 1,200 teachers and other employees in the cash-strapped Huntington Beach Union High School District have settled on a contract that includes no pay increase for the second straight year. District Supt. David Hagen announced at Tuesday's board meeting that he will keep pace with district workers by voluntarily giving up a raise that had been guaranteed in the second year of his $98,000-a-year contract.

Huntington Beach Union High School District trustees on Tuesday will hold a public hearing on Supt. David Hagen's recommendations to slash spending by $3.1 million. The Board of Trustees will discuss the proposed reductions but will not adopt a final package of cuts until March 10. More than 150 parents, teachers and other employees packed the board meeting room two weeks ago to hear Hagen outline his recommendations for next year's $80-million budget.

Concerned that they may be shortchanged in receiving future developer fees, school district officials are asking that schools be included in a growth management plan that the City Council will consider tonight.

The superintendent of the Huntington Beach Union High School District on Tuesday said that two top district officials will be laid off to make $120,000 in management cuts ordered last week by the Board of Trustees. The district's coordinator of bilingual education and its manager of telecommunications will lose their jobs at the end of this school year, Supt. David Hagen said. Those layoffs bring the total to 51 jobs that will be eliminated under $3.

In the severest budget slashing ever, high school district trustees have cut $3.1 million from next year's budget but salvaged some threatened school programs and spared the jobs of three librarians. Under the spending cuts approved by the board late Tuesday night, the Huntington Beach Union High School District this month will send layoff or reassignment notices to four nurses, six psychologists, at least five school administrators and dozens of other employees.

A $200,000 science grant given to the Huntington Beach City School District this summer, the Beckman Science Incentive Grant, will be used to fund teacher training, science materials and program coordination. It will be distributed to all district schools over a four-year period. Each kindergarten through fifth-grade teacher participating in the pilot program will focus on one unit each of earth, physical and life science, rather than teaching science lessons with a broader approach.

The Huntington Beach High School Foundation this week kicked off its "Take the Plunge" campaign aimed at raising $400,000 to reopen the closed campus pool. "Our goal is to have the pool open for the kids by late 1998," foundation President Sylvia Garrett said Monday. The Huntington Beach Union High School District closed the 64-year-old pool in 1991 because of budget cutbacks.
