The senior citizen vote is being credited or blamed, depending on residents' points of view, for the defeat of a local school bond measure that went down by a 57% to 43% vote Tuesday. A group of older volunteers, most of them senior citizens, led the campaign against Measure H, which would have raised about $23 million during the next six years for new projects and repairs that officials said were needed for local junior and senior high schools.

Tax cuts might be the talk of state and national politicians, but local school board members are asking residents to approve a bond measure in June as the district struggles to make ends meet. The money is needed for earthquake repairs not covered by emergency aid and to upgrade older facilities that have not been properly maintained for years, said William S. Hart Union High School District board members as they unanimously approved the ballot measure at their Wednesday night meeting.

A third district is considering a fee to bus students to school this fall to partly offset a nearly $300,000 deficit for transportation services. The Sulphur Springs Union School District proposal would charge students $100 per year. Families would pay $75 per year to bus a second child and $50 for a third. "I believe the board is very serious about adopting this. We have a quarter-million-dollar-plus deficit in our transportation budget," Sulphur Springs Supt. Robert Nolet said.

The Sulphur Springs School District came a step closer Tuesday to becoming a venture capitalist. The Santa Clarita Planning Commission unanimously approved the elementary school district's plan to lease a former school site to a developer for a shopping center. The district's proposal to jointly develop the mall with Tandam Builders Inc. would bring in at least $500,000 annually for new schools and classrooms during the 66-year life of the lease.

Notes from Mom on plain paper explaining that Johnny is too sick to come to school are worth more than $10 bills to school officials. The Sulphur Springs Union School District hopes to earn an additional $60,000 in state funds this year by culling more written excuses from Santa Clarita parents. California school districts receive money from the state for every student who is in class or has an excused absence. Excused absences are those due to illness.

The William S. Hart Union High School District will probably join the growing list of public schools in the state no longer offering hands-on driver training courses, although classroom courses in driving safety will continue. The district's director of curriculum, Gary Wexler, said he would recommend to board members that the course be dropped because of drastic cutbacks in state funds for driver training and a recent court decision that banned charging students for the training.

The driver's training program in the William S. Hart Union High School District has crashed into a fiscal wall. The district's board unanimously voted Wednesday night to scrap the behind-the-wheel program because the state has expropriated the funds originally designated for it. Classroom driver education courses, required by the district for graduation, will continue. None of the board members was happy about eliminating the program, which provided both simulator and on-the-road training.
