Santa Ana school board members tonight will decide whether to abandon the annual rite of parent camp-outs to register their children for magnet schools and replace it with a lottery system. The camp-outs, in which hundreds of parents sleep in tents outside school grounds for up to a week waiting to enroll their children, may violate state laws that require random admissions, said Sal Tinejero, the school board member who proposed the change.

A school board vote has been postponed on a controversial plan to do away with parent camp-outs for enrolling their children at magnet schools and replacing them with an enrollment lottery. Santa Ana Unified trustees decided Tuesday to table the item until January. In the meantime, board members said, they will seek advice from the state attorney general on the legality of the current policy and get parents' views.

The devoted father hunkered down for a long stay in front of Greenville Fundamental School--five nights in a yellow-and-blue tent until he can register his daughter for kindergarten. Paul Barnes had camped out five years ago as well, to grab a spot at the coveted school for his son. But that was for only one night. "A lot more parents want to send their children to Greenville now," Barnes said Tuesday, standing amid the scores of parental tents wedged together.

A small city of dome tents has sprouted on a Santa Ana sidewalk where scores of parents have been camping out since Wednesday morning in hopes of registering their children for fall classes at the highly regarded Greenville Fundamental School. The annual first-come, first-served kindergarten registration ritual is a bit tamer than in previous years, when the line for Saturday's registration started the previous Monday and by Thursday more than 100 parents had staked out a place in line.

Student enrollment in the Santa Ana Unified School District is expected to increase by 22,000 students by the year 2000, requiring the district to construct more than 680 new classrooms, according to a study to be presented to the school board later this month. Santa Ana Unified administrators presented a preview of the study last week to officials from the city and neighboring school districts to point out the dire need for new and improved schools in Santa Ana.

Leaders of Orange County's Head Start program for low-income preschool children, already so overbooked that they placed more than 1,500 needy children on a waiting list this year, now wonder how they will cope with a federally mandated expansion of the program. Last week, on the 29th anniversary of the federally funded anti-poverty program, President Clinton signed a bill designed to extend Head Start services to children under 3 years old and to pregnant women.

They weren't waiting for tickets to see Bruce Springsteen or Barbra Streisand, or even the Super Bowl. More than 200 people who camped out Wednesday night in a Santa Ana school parking lot--many prepared to stay for three nights--were looking only for a chance to enroll their children in one of the city's best public schools.

An enrollment increase means larger classes next year, according to Santa Ana Unified School District officials. Last year, district elementary schools reduced the number of students in first- and second-grade classes to 20. Seventeen schools created smaller classes in third grade or kindergarten. District officials predict that only seven schools will be able to continue with just 20 students per class in three grades next year.

They left Saturday morning tired, cold and sore--but mostly happy, having spent the last three nights camped out to register their children for fall classes at Santa Ana's highly regarded Greenville Fundamental School. By the time Principal Melanie Champion strolled out to greet the weary parents, there were 71 names on a list that had been growing since Wednesday, when the first dome tents sprouted up outside the school and the waiting began.
