The Los Angeles school board--divided by personality conflicts and philosophical differences--shelved a report three years ago recommending a host of school safety measures, some of which are being hastily put in place after two students were killed on campuses in the last five weeks. "What we presented could have prevented future deaths," said Alfred Moore, a retired school district assistant superintendent who coordinated the 65-member school safety task force. "Now they are trying to implement some of the recommendations in a foolish, piecemeal way."

Moving quickly to fill a political vacuum, Los Angeles school board member Julie Korenstein filed papers Wednesday to run for the mid-San Fernando Valley seat being vacated by board member Roberta Weintraub. Korenstein's action came on the first day candidates were allowed to file for 1993 city races and one day after Weintraub made her surprise announcement that she is retiring after 14 years on the board.

A Los Angeles school board member from the Westside said Tuesday he is considering running for reelection next spring in a district that includes the western San Fernando Valley--setting up a possible clash with Valley-based board member Julie Korenstein. Mark Slavkin, making a controversial appearance before 40 parents and educators in Canoga Park, was asked, "Why are you here tonight?"

A Los Angeles School Board member from the Westside speaks to San Fernando Valley parents and school officials tonight, drawing charges from some parents that he is jumping the gun to campaign for next April's school board election against a Valley-based opponent. Board member Mark Slavkin scheduled a "community town hall meeting" at Columbus Junior High School in Canoga Park.

Will the real Westside school board representative please stand up? Incumbent Mark Slavkin says he's the one. But so does San Fernando Valley board member Julie Korenstein. The city schools' month-old redistricting plan, drawn to add a second Latino seat, places Slavkin and Korenstein in what will be District 4, an area stretching from Los Angeles International Airport north to Porter Ranch.

By next April, if everything goes as expected, Julie Korenstein will be embroiled in what most observers predict will be a tough bid to retain her seat on the Los Angeles Board of Education. It will be Korenstein's fourth election battle in six years but will be something new for her in certain notable respects. This fight was precipitated by a bitterly contested redistricting plan that carved up the San Fernando Valley and extended Korenstein's constituency into the Westside.

Embracing the latest school board remapping plan, Westside member Mark Slavkin said he will "absolutely" run for the new seat and press for fundamental changes in how Los Angeles schools are governed. The newly drawn boundaries keep most of his present Westside seat intact but pit him against the west San Fernando Valley's board member in next year's elections. "It's a done deal," he said of plan, which is expected to be approved by the full City Council on Friday.

I find it extremely important that I write to express my concerns about the City Council vote that will be taken Friday on the redistricting of the Los Angeles Unified School District. I fervently hope that the City Council will reconsider the redistricting plan and vote against it. The plan will divide the Valley into four school board districts, three of which will be primarily in the central portions of Los Angeles. It is destructive, divisive and unconscionable. The new redistricting plan for the LAUSD is a Draconian scheme to systematically break up and destroy the representation of the San Fernando Valley.

A Los Angeles school board redistricting proposal unveiled Friday would create a new Latino-dominated district and set up an election battle next year between incumbents now representing the Westside and San Fernando Valley. Reaction to the plan was swift and strong: Latino groups embraced it while San Fernando Valley-based school activists complained that it was divisive.
