A classroom crunch in Long Beach has forced teachers and students to meet not only in portable facilities but also in libraries, auditoriums and--in at least one case--an open-air courtyard. The crunch comes in the wake of a surge in student enrollment seen across Los Angeles County just as school districts begin class size reductions in the third grade. Most districts, however, were able to absorb the enrollment growth with few problems.

More than 150 parents, educators and business and community leaders from Los Angeles County and beyond turned out Tuesday for a federal hearing on ways to improve the educational track record for Latino students. Many sought funds for specialized programs, bilingual teachers, anti-dropout projects and new schools and updated equipment. But the dominant theme of the hearing, the last held on a five-city tour by President Bush's Task Force on Hispanic Education, was parental involvement.

Schools that already feel cramped had better brace for more. Annual countywide enrollment projections released Thursday predict 12% growth by the year 2005--to 1.7 million students--the equivalent of 20,000 additional students annually. Because birth rates have reached a record high of about 200,000 babies annually in Los Angeles County, even the slowing of immigration into the region in recent years has not reversed the burgeoning numbers of students showing up at school doors.

Los Angeles Unified School District enrollment has fallen more than 5,000 students since October, continuing a downward trend that has defied district projections. Enrollment last fall rose by 2,000 students to 592,273, about 12,000 short of the number district officials had expected. The latest enrollment report, which was based on information gathered during the first week in March, showed total enrollment had dropped 1% or 5,677 students, for a total of 586,596.

Teen-agers soon will be able to choose not only what classes they want, but which campus they'd like to attend. The William S. Hart Union High School District will reconfigure its attendance boundaries in upcoming months to accommodate the opening of its new Valencia High School and La Mesa Junior High School in September. The change comes amid new state legislation that requires California districts to offer open enrollment--allowing students to enroll in the school of their choice.

One in every 31 students attending high school or junior high here this fall has chosen to go to a different campus under the state's new open enrollment plan. About 355 of the 11,000 students enrolled at William S. Hart Union High School District's eight campuses have asked to go to different schools. The district includes all of Santa Clarita's public high schools and junior high schools. California open enrollment allows students to attend any campus in a public school district they want.

English teachers in the Las Virgenes Unified School District have withdrawn a controversial proposal to eliminate traditional ninth-grade honors English classes and put bright students in regular classes. Instead of attending honors classes, the proposal called for bright students to volunteer for more challenging work for extra credit. The teachers also withdrew an accompanying proposal to revamp a program in which class sizes have been reduced for 11th-grade English students.
