So Newport-Mesa School Board President Roderick H. MacMillian considers his school district to be suffering from "an image problem" ("Schools Get Poor Grades in Residents' Report Card," Feb. 14). Meanwhile, parents and teachers are outraged about the embezzlement of $4 million by a top district official, overcrowded classrooms, lack of textbooks and cuts in art, music, and athletics. No wonder resident Jim Baldwin thinks "the school board is out of whack." TOM KLAMMER Santa Ana

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District board voted unanimously this week to eliminate the Costa Mesa Farm Program. Two weeks ago, the seven board members hinted that the farm, which has been a part of the district since the 1930s, was not generating enough student participation and could not justify the $110,000 in annual expenses. On Tuesday night, the board reluctantly voted to close the farm June 30.

Orange County's League of Women Voters will moderate two candidate forums this month for Newport-Mesa Unified School District board candidates. Three incumbents are leaving the seven-member board and one is seeking reelection. The unexpected departure of veteran board member Roderick H. MacMillian opens a seat that many previously thought was unattainable. When MacMillian dropped out last week, citing ill health, only one opponent had filed for candidacy in Trustee Area 7.

Trustees of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District may consolidate board elections with general statewide voting, a change that would save money but would also give each board member an extra year on their current terms. The board is expected to discuss the plan on Tuesday. Board members are elected to four-year terms, with half of the members up for reelection every two years.

Parents concerned about budget problems in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District asked the school board last week if they could form a committee to help trustees address the district's deficit. The 12-member group received a lukewarm response from most of the trustees, who said school board meetings were the best forum for complaints and suggestions. "I'd rather have you come to us here if there are concerns," board member Roderick H. MacMillian said.
