The Burbank Board of Education, in a continuing effort to address increased violence on school campuses, is expected tonight to approve spending more than $100,000 for emergency communication systems at each of the city's two high schools and one elementary school. Three of the five board members said Wednesday they will vote to install the security systems. Two board members could not be reached for comment. "It sounds like a good idea to me," board member William Abbey said.

A new dress code at John Burroughs High School has been honored by most students, a school official said Thursday. An estimated 90% of all students are complying with the ban against baggy, oversized clothing, commonly associated with gang attire, Burroughs Dean of Students Lynn Mingori said. Old rules, changed over the summer, had only prohibited gang members from wearing such attire on campus.

Keeping in step with John Burroughs High School, Burbank High has also refined its dress code to deal with gang members and taggers, Principal Keiko Hentell said. Because low-slung baggy pants, although fashionable among many teen-agers, can denote gang affiliation, the new code forbids wearing pants below the natural waistline. It also prohibits "tagger related clothing" but does not define what such clothing might be.

I, being a longtime fan of Ron Howard, could not wait to start "The Truth About Ron Howard," by James Greenberg (May 12). However, during the exchange about his old neighborhood in Burbank, I took exception to Howard's statement that John Burroughs High School didn't have any blacks when he was there. The paragraph before that he was shocked and awed that there was a biker living in his old house. Ron, that biker in your old Burbank home could well be one of the many fine studio craftsmen who work on the very production you direct.

Choir singers at John Burroughs High School have to struggle for their art. "It's just so difficult, pressure-wise, to know you have a show coming up and you don't have the money for it," said Patrick Shearer, a member of the chamber choir, who will be a junior. "Usually, we have a competition a week. Sometimes we have to turn it down because we don't have enough money to pay for a bus."

A John Burroughs High School student who avoided expulsion after allegedly striking a teacher and threatening to kill him and another teacher was suspended by the school principal for five days following the incident, Burbank school district officials said Tuesday. The decision by the Burbank school board last week not to expel the teen-ager triggered a one-day wildcat strike by all but three of the teachers at Burroughs on Friday.

The 50-member John Burroughs High School marching band got to be the Universal CityWalk official marching band because of the fire in the musicians' eyes, director Tom Whaley said. "When they play with fire in their eyes, they can stir anyone," Whaley said. Being named the official marching band for the new attraction at Universal Studios is a stunning achievement considering that when Whaley joined the program almost two years ago there were only eight members, he said.

A crowd of the curious gathered around the Rosemead High School faculty parking lot one recent Friday afternoon. They were trying, without much success, to get a look at the set of "The Wonder Years." "Step back please. We're filming here," warned a staff assistant for the television show. "But I wanted to get a picture of Fred Savage," said Martha Mendoza, a 1965 graduate of the school.
