Some La Habra schools, as well as others in the Fullerton Joint Union High School District, are not performing up to the standards the district set for itself, according to a recent report. District officials reported substandard marks in several key areas and noted that satisfaction ratings among students, parents and staff are down from two years ago.

The good news for Rose Espinoza's husband is that he can finally use his garage. Perhaps not as good for dozens of students in La Habra is that Rosie's Garage, a nationally recognized tutoring program, has moved from the humble home location where it began 12 years ago. After helping hundreds of children, the after-school homework-help program was moved out of her Corona Park neighborhood last week because of mounting concerns over the possibility of lawsuits and insurance liability.

A local book publishing company has delivered nearly $23,000 worth of textbooks free to the La Habra City School District in an effort to form an "alliance for learning" that will promote the books and help the schools, officials said. The district had ordered $16,469 worth of English-as-a-second-language textbooks, but the owners of Ballard & Tighe Publishers, who live in La Habra, gave the district $39,000 worth of books.

After a recent spate of local school bond victories, the question to be answered Tuesday is: Will voters in a notoriously tax-averse county continue to approve multimillion-dollar funding for renovation of aging campuses? Newport-Mesa and La Habra hope to follow five other school districts since November 1998 and earn the two-thirds majority support for bond measures of $110 million and $16 million respectively. The approvals followed a two-decade-long drought for school funding measures.

"Well," she mused, "robots are going to do all the work. And there'll be a lot of spaceships going around."

La Habra City School District board members last week gave final approval to revisions in a policy that prohibits students from bringing weapons to school. Before the board's vote, students who violated the policy could face expulsion. Now violators will be expelled. "We have no choice now," board member Antonio Valle Jr. said. "If (students) have guns, they will be expelled even if we think they are good kids." Added board President Nancy S. Zinberg: "The students have the choice.

Tuesday is election day for registered voters within the boundaries of the La Habra City School District. The only measure on the ballot is Measure K, an initiative to repair and upgrade all of our existing neighborhood schools. Measure K is a general obligation bond request that would authorize $16 million for school improvements. Passage would make the district eligible to receive $9.8 million in state matching funds. If the measure fails, those state funds will be allocated to other districts, and La Habra will lose the opportunity to regain some of its tax dollars.

La Habra City School District trustees last week approved a policy to demonstrate to students and staff members that sexual harassment and weapons on school property will not be tolerated. The action gives district personnel the right to confiscate weapons or replicas and suspend or expel students who are caught carrying them. The intent is to keep schools, school buses and any school-related activities free from the danger and fear of weapons, officials said.

The snack bar at La Habra High School will reopen later this month after being closed for the last decade. The school and the district's food services department decided to reopen three of the snack bar's 12 service windows to ease crowding in the cafeteria and encourage students to stay on campus for lunch. As part of the school's "Freshman Success" program, ninth-graders are no longer allowed to leave campus during the school day.

La Habra City School District's only day-care center and preschool will be converted into an elementary school in 18 months. Supt. Rich Hermann said Friday that the district's class-size reduction program, a lack of funds for new buildings to house more classrooms and a growing enrollment are behind the conversion. The move means that the 30 employees of Arbolita Child Care Center will have to find other jobs by July 1998.
