Vaughn Street Elementary School in Pacoima, the first in the Los Angeles Unified School District to adopt a voluntary uniform policy, will become the first to make them mandatory. Dismayed parents and officials have concluded that the optional plan simply does not work.

The Los Angeles school board Thursday allowed a small Westside magnet school to break away from many state and local education codes to become the district's first so-called charter school. The 400-student Open School has asked for autonomy to design and test innovative teaching methods. Under the plan approved by six board members with one abstention, the school will secede from the district over five years.
