Until an alternative site is identified, the city of Santa Clarita will provide space in Newhall Park for the city's first Head Start program. The City Council decided last week to install a portable Head Start classroom at the park for up to two years, despite concern from residents and city officials who said the education program for low-income children will take up valuable park space. Still, the City Council asked city staff to return May 12 with a report on alternative sites.

An elementary school teacher and former sheriff's deputy has pleaded not guilty to charges he sexually assaulted a female colleague in a classroom in the school where the two work. Edward Keith Culhane, 35, entered the plea Tuesday in Newhall Municipal Court, where he was charged this week with felony counts of rape by a foreign object, sexual assault, and attempted forcible oral copulation. Culhane was released on $50,000 bail.

Natural gas fumes sickened dozens of children Wednesday morning at a junior high school, sending nine to the hospital with complaints of nausea and headaches. None of the cases were considered serious, authorities said. The gas odor traveled from a site three miles southwest of the school where Southern California Gas Co. was releasing gas to work on a transmission pipeline being relocated for a housing development, a company official said.

Dozens of parents and teachers have asked that Old Orchard Elementary School remain on a traditional schedule, saying the planned switch to a year-round, multitrack system in July will harm bilingual, clustering and other programs. Under the year-round program, students are assigned to a track in which they alternately attend school for 60 days and have 20 days off. The four tracks are staggered so only three groups of students are on campus at one time, boosting a school's capacity.

At a time when good news for public schools is scarce, the Newhall School District has a double dose of it to celebrate. On Wednesday, Meadows Elementary School in Valencia invited parents to the school to celebrate its being named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. This year, 220 public schools in the country--including 26 in California--received the designation, which is given by the agency on the basis of a school's academics, activities and overall curriculum.

When students of Santa Clarita's newest high school stare off into space during classes next year, at least they'll be calm as the deep blue sea while doing it. That's if the color schemes selected by the William S. Hart Union High School District work as advertised. No doubt other school districts will be green with envy when they see the colors of the classroom walls in the new high school scheduled to open in September, 1994, in Valencia.

A group of Santa Clarita residents contends that a new law passed after the Belmont High School debacle has failed to help them halt the purchase of land for a new school, despite environmental problems. The law requires the state Department of Toxic Substances Control to check proposed school sites for contamination before the land can be purchased.

City and school leaders celebrated the opening of a road to a proposed new high school Wednesday while acknowledging the campus may not be built for another decade. Golden Valley High School was to be one of four new schools funded by a $52-million bond issue and matching state funds. But for the second time since November, a small fraction of the city's voters have blocked the William S. Hart Union High School District from passing the bond package.

No opening-night jitters or triumphant curtain calls--not for any of the aspiring singers, actors and musicians of 1997, whose high school careers will end without their ever performing in the school's 900-seat auditorium. Condemned after the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the 42-year-old Henry Mayo Newhall Auditorium at Hart High School has remained closed because of a legal dispute between the local school district and its insurance company.

The sole issue on the ballot in this city, a local bond measure to fund building improvements and new equipment at area schools, was losing Tuesday night based on early returns and absentee ballots. The backers of Measure H hoped it would raise an estimated $23 million for schools in the William S. Hart Union High School District by modifying an existing bond passed in 1974. Currently, that bond can be used only to collect money to pay rent on district buildings.

A controversial school boundary plan that would have sent elementary students from a poor Latino neighborhood to a new school in an upscale development has been scrapped after protests from parents in the development. Many residents of Stevenson Ranch, where the new school is being built, applauded as the Newhall School District board made the announcement during its Tuesday night meeting.

Parents in this suburban community are upset over a proposed redrawing of elementary school boundaries. But they are not just concerned that their children might be transferred to a different school. Some are worried that children from the poor side of this mostly middle-class, mostly white community will be coming to their neighborhood schools.
