A major thoroughfare that connects Los Alamitos and Seal Beach will serve as the boundary for the two middle schools in the Los Alamitos Unified School District. Students living east of Los Alamitos Boulevard will attend McAuliffe Middle School, and those on the west will go to Oak Middle School, which is scheduled to open in the fall. Los Alamitos Boulevard becomes Seal Beach Boulevard when it reaches the Seal Beach city limits.

Peekaboo will have new meaning this year for some elementary students in Los Alamitos Unified School District. In Oak Middle School's Sneak a Peek program, parents with children at the school can set up tours so that they can take a "peek" at what their kids are learning.

Angry parents have protested a decision by the Los Alamitos Unified School District to convert sixth-grade instrumental music at McAuliffe Middle School into an after-school program that will be paid for by parents. "This is a tragedy for our district," said Karen Dow, a parent who spoke during a school board meeting Monday. "I don't see any activity in sixth grade to replace it." Starting in September, instrumental music will no longer be offered as a yearlong elective in sixth grade.

Despite recent voter approval of a $13-million bond issue to maintain schools, officials in the Los Alamitos Unified School District say they need more money. One option under consideration in the 5,700-student school system is developing two of the district's five campuses that have been closed because of declining enrollment. A recent district study found that the public may not support such a move because voters just approved a $13-million bond issue earlier this month.

A quick glance indicates Los Alamitos Unified School District scored high on the Academic Performance Index (API) test results released last week. All eight schools surveyed are within the top 20% of the state, four are in the top 10% and, because of that, the district will be rewarded with cash bonuses of up to $150 per student. But upon closer inspection, why didn't the local schools score as well in the comparison of similar schools?

Faced with financial difficulties, the Los Alamitos Unified School District is considering the sale of a closed school in Rossmoor. Originally, the district wanted to arrange a long-term lease of the site of the school, which was closed in the late 1970s. However, because there were no qualified bidders, the district is now thinking of selling the property, Supt. Michael Miller said. A district committee has estimated the site would sell for $5.8 million to $7.2 million.
