Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District officials approved a policy this week that will provide high school students with easy access to condoms beginning April 20. The policy's greatest restriction is that a small fee will be charged for the condoms. School officials originally envisioned a program in which students would obtain condoms from a counselor and parents would be able to bar their children from having access to the condoms.

The freshman class that arrives at Santa Monica High School every fall is really made up of two classes that will nonetheless find themselves attending some of the same courses, school dances and football games. But the two classes are quite different. The members of each come from a variety of ethnic, economic and geographic backgrounds, but one group is more likely to be affluent and white or Asian American and is headed toward four-year colleges.

It was moving week in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, complete with the usual hassles--items lost, broken or misplaced in the confusion of packing, carting and unpacking boxes. Dressed in jeans and sneakers, scores of district workers hauled the entire contents of the old Santa Monica-Malibu headquarters, including boxes of records, supplies and office furniture, to the new facility on 16th Street and Olympic Boulevard.

Neil Carrey has sometimes been critical of spending in the Santa Monica-Malibu school district. But now, he says, the district has done nothing wrong -- it's just not getting enough money from the state. "This is not like the boy who cried wolf," he said. "This is real." As a result of anticipated budget shortfalls, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District will ask voters -- by mail -- to support a parcel tax that could stave off teacher layoffs and maintain such classes as art and music.

Parents at Webster Elementary School in Malibu amassed about $300,000 in donations last year to pay for such extras as classroom aides and art, computer and gardening teachers. The PTA at Will Rogers Elementary School in Santa Monica was lucky to raise about $85,000 to pay for storytellers and other enrichment -- and to cover the unpaid cafeteria bills of children from poor immigrant families.

Hunks of the stucco walls have fallen off, the paint is curling back, the heating system has a mind of its own, the pipes burst on occasion, and the carpeting--garish orange in some rooms, baby blue in others--is threadbare, stained and ripped. This fixer-upper is Santa Monica High School. The cost of the repairs: about $20 million.

Neil C. Schmidt, 51, new superintendent of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. Claim to fame: Schmidt took the helm of the 9,500-student school district in July upon the retirement of Eugene Tucker. Schmidt had been superintendent of the Lodi Unified School District in the San Joaquin Valley. An advocate of the concept that school achievement is dependent on a supportive home environment, he established a family literacy program at several elementary schools.
