The once-radical idea of replacing traditional summer vacations with year-round schools used to draw hundreds of angry parents to public meetings and threatened to unseat its supporters on the Los Angeles school board.

San Fernando High baseball Coach Steve Marden, one of the most influential coaches in the San Fernando Valley, announced his resignation Monday, citing increasing disenchantment with the Los Angeles Unified School District. Marden, a Cleveland High graduate who took over at San Fernando in 1975 and turned the moribund program into a consistent winner, said he believes things in the district will get worse before they get better.

Administrators at four San Fernando Valley high schools want to convert to a year-round schedule this summer to accommodate hundreds of ninth-graders who will be added to the top three grades in a districtwide reorganization.

Henry Ortega figured that it would take a dollar from each of the 25,000 or so graduating seniors in the Los Angeles school district to pay for his freshman year at Brown University. Either that or a miracle. But the 17-year-old San Fernando High School senior, the son of a machine operator, won't have to beg for his Ivy League education. His angel showed up in a three-piece suit.

Administrators at San Fernando High did not have to look far to find a replacement for baseball Coach Steve Marden. Their man was right there, in the same physical education department, no less. Dan Heim, the school's junior varsity coach for the past 12 seasons, was named Tuesday to succeed Marden. With Heim, San Fernando has both an on-campus coach and continuity in the program. "That's the guy we wanted all along," said Paul Swanson, the school's administrator in charge of athletics.

An autopsy Friday confirmed that a 17-year-old San Fernando High School senior, who friends said went out for football to avoid social pressures to join a gang, died of heatstroke after practicing in 102-degree weather. Sergio Echevarria died Thursday, 36 hours after he collapsed following an hour of running and other exercises in the midday sun.
