Rowland High School has won $140,818 from the state because its students recorded the greatest improvement in California Assessment Program scores of any school tested in the state. The cash incentive program, begun this year, is based on the number of students who took the test and the degree of improvement over previous scores. Rowland earned the largest cash award. Rowland Unified School District officials said the high school's 1984 test scores were up 6.8% in reading, 5% in writing, 5.

That unusual silence around schools in Rowland Heights on Thursday wasn't a lack of classroom activity, just an extraordinary absence of teachers' voices. The 630-member teachers union in the San Gabriel Valley city staged a one-day job action to protest a plan by the fund-strapped Rowland Unified School District to increase class sizes. The teachers called it a "Day of Silence." They were supposed to conduct their regular classes, but without uttering a sound, which was frustrating, they said.

Rowland High School was just a year old when Dick Ferrell, fresh out of college, began teaching there in 1965. "Back then," he said last week in his office in a portable classroom, "you could have shot a cannon down Colima." Now, Colima Road is lined with fast food outlets and gas stations and strip shopping centers, and behind them are houses and apartments and garages that spew people and cars by the thousands onto Colima and Nogales and all over Rowland Heights to the Pomona Freeway.
