Three past or present schoolteachers from the San Fernando Valley, one of them a former president of the teachers union, will challenge incumbent Mark Slavkin for the new Westside-West Valley seat on the Los Angeles school board this spring. Slavkin's stiffest competition was eliminated recently when Julie Korenstein, a board member who lives in Porter Ranch, announced that she will move to the mid-Valley and run for the seat being vacated by longtime board member Roberta L. Weintraub.

In the new District 4, which stretches from Chatsworth to Westchester, incumbent Mark Slavkin is seeking a return to the Los Angeles Board of Education on the strength of his political support on the Westside. About 60% of the district's voters live south of Mulholland Drive. That is good for Slavkin, who represented the Westside exclusively until last year's reapportionment put him in a district that includes West Los Angeles and the western San Fernando Valley.

Incumbent Mark Slavkin eked out a slim majority Tuesday to win reelection outright in a redistricted Westside-west San Fernando Valley seat on the Los Angeles school board. Final, unofficial results showed Slavkin with 52.9% of the vote, sparing him a runoff election that would have been needed had he gotten less than 50%. His strongest challenge came from political newcomer Douglas Lasken, a second-grade teacher from Woodland Hills, who came in second with 34.4%.
