Half of the $2.4-billion bond measure has been set aside for repairs and improvements to make up for decades of neglected maintenance. But a Times computer analysis found distinct inequities. Start with Birmingham High School, the sprawling campus in the San Fernando Valley's suburban heart.

The money stems from anti-gang legislation by Assemblyman Richard Katz (D-Sylmar) in 1988. Katz initially proposed the Gang Risk Intervention Program (GRIP) as a pilot project, but last year the Legislature passed the bill and made the program permanent.
