North Hollywood High School has been cleared in a leak of secure state test items, but a former student at the school has some explaining to do. The student was among those who allegedly posted online a total of 36 questions from various standardized exams conducted last spring. The questions were traced to 12 schools across California, including North Hollywood — but the student no longer attended that campus during the testing period. By that time, the student had transferred to an independently managed charter school, according to a source who was not authorized to comment publicly.

Longtime artist Barbara Black didn't reach for her paintbrush when she decided a mural would brighten her Valley Village home. Instead, she contacted the art department at nearby North Hollywood High School and invited students to decorate the 50-foot alley wall next to her Otsego Street residence. Black asked the young artists to bring their ideas, and, because she is on a fixed income, to bring their own paint as well. They were happy to oblige. "It's hard to find a place to work where you're not doing it illegally," said Anthony Zapada Green, 19, who hopes to become a professional graphic artist.
