The unemployment rate may be low, but so are your chances of finding a place to live that you can afford. Many companies are now looking at housing assistance as a recruitment and retention tool. Most of the help comes in the form of forgivable or low-interest loans, rental subsidies, or grants to cover closing costs. Fannie Mae, Xerox and Harley-Davidson are just some of the companies that are offering this necessity-driven perk. Howard University in Washington, D.C.

The Oxnard Union High School District's five-month search for a new superintendent ended Wednesday night when the board named the head of a small Stanislaus County high school district to its top job. Ian C. Kirkpatrick, 48, accepted the $87,000-a-year post left vacant with the July 1 departure of Bob Cash. Kirkpatrick, who assumes the post full time on Oct. 8, had been superintendent of the Oakdale Joint Union High School District for the past five years.

Awell-intended but poorly policed California Coastal Commission program was supposed to make condominiums available to low- and middle-income families in Orange County, long home to some of the state's priciest residential real estate. But some of the condos built near the shoreline instead ended up in the hands of professionals and other high-income workers after the original owners sold or rented out the units at market rates.

One sure way to ease the shortage of teachers would be to bless educators with a hefty increase in pay and prestige. Absent that unlikely development, school districts and the institutions that train tomorrow's educators must develop creative programs that will pull needed teachers into elementary and secondary school classrooms. The Santa Clara Unified School District had the smart idea of using low-cost housing as bait.

Even as the brutal math of the state budget crisis has been little more than a distant rumble to many Californians, parents in some wealthy and well-organized school districts have been shaken from their inattention, as teachers, PTAs and their own kids have sent home word that popular school programs are on the chopping block.

The teen stowaway who survived a flight from San Jose to Hawaii in a wheel well of a jet is recovering and could be reunited with his family soon. The boy spent Tuesday "resting comfortably" in a Hawaii hospital, said Kayla Rosenfeld of the state's Department of Human Services. Officials with child welfare services, which now has custody of the teen, are making arrangements to send him home, she said. Santa Clara Unified School District spokeswoman Jennifer Dericco confirmed the teenager was a high school student in the district, but declined to say where, citing privacy concerns.

The Los Angeles Unified School District is looking to develop low-cost apartments on as many as 12 campuses in an effort to help teachers find less expensive housing and live closer to their jobs. District officials have begun asking real estate developers to submit housing proposals on school campuses in Hollywood and Harbor Gateway and are reviewing other campuses where apartments could be built on surplus land.
