The Class of 2005 banner hung across the small stage in Joaquin Miller High School's multipurpose room. Nicholas Gallant was wheeled to the stage, shaking a rattle. Genevieve Gonzales giggled as she walked in her cap and gown. A bus driver played "Pomp and Circumstance" on the piano. A speaker read messages to each student from the teacher. And all the students handed their parents or guardians a rose to say "thank you."

Plans for an aquatic demonstration to help dedicate a new public swimming pool to be used by Cleveland and Joaquin Miller high schools had to be dropped Thursday. The water was too cold, about 54 degrees, compared with the 81-degree temperature needed.

But that was a minor problem compared to the last time city and school officials tried to open the $2.

Los Angeles police officers have taught safety in schools for years. But reserve officer Fred Baron couldn't help but wonder why students at San Fernando Valley's five special education schools weren't getting the same education on a more rudimentary level. On Friday, Baron and three police officers changed that by bringing the POSSE Project--which stands for Police Officers Supporting Special Education--to 150 or so students at Joaquin Miller High School in Reseda.
