A golf practice center will open in July at the former city hall site on Western Avenue. The City Council last week approved a lease agreement between the city and Savanna School District, which now owns the land and the building that was once city hall. Council members also approved a sublease agreement with Number One Golf, which will build and operate the center. The center will have a driving range, a putting course, a pro shop and food stands.

Four Orange County school districts are expected to cancel elections in November because no one is challenging incumbent trustees on the boards. Under election codes, Cypress, Fullerton Joint Union, La Habra City and Savanna school districts can appoint the incumbents rather than hold the election. A fifth school district, Buena Park-based Centralia, has three candidates, including two incumbents, running for three seats and is expected to make appointments as well.

The Savanna School District is the first in Orange County to receive a bilingual education waiver allowing English-only instruction without bilingual teaching assistants. Granted by the state, the waivers allow districts to teach students with limited English skills the basic subjects like reading and math in English rather than in students' native language. Westminster and Magnolia school districts have received waivers but have bilingual assistants available to help students.

City leaders are considering providing fueling services for school buses and other vehicles of the neighboring Savanna School District. The 2,100-student district, which has three schools in Anaheim and one in Buena Park, is removing its own underground fuel storage tanks.

Students at four schools in the Savanna School District will soon have more classroom space, thanks to state grant funds for day-care facilities. Currently, the district's preschool and after-school care facilities are in school classrooms and modular structures. With the recently awarded grant money, new portable facilities will be added to school sites, freeing classrooms for students. "This district has had (student) growth in the past five to six years," Assistant Supt. Carolyn Lawson said.

The county government will soon begin paying $2.7 million to the county's 27 school districts, settling a lawsuit in which the districts sought a share of penalties collected by the county for delinquent property taxes. The payments, which will begin within two weeks, come on the heels of a similar settlement between the county and 50 other public agencies, including most Orange County cities.

When school starts next month, classes across the district will be in English only, without help from bilingual teaching assistants. The elementary school district in March became the third in Orange County within the past two years to receive a waiver to the state's bilingual education requirement. The 2,400-student Anaheim-based district has not had any certified bilingual teachers for several years, although it has a sizable population of students who aren't fluent in English.

Every year, for longer than most can remember, the Savanna School District has celebrated the start of spring with the birth of silkworms. When buds begin to appear on the local mulberry trees, district secretary Nora McKie takes the container filled with silkworm eggs out of her refrigerator and hands out the poppy seed-sized eggs to teachers. The thousands of eggs, which are gathered the previous year, are kept refrigerated so they won't hatch too soon.

Pay-raise practices and money problems in general are issues raised by candidates running for the school board in the tiny Savanna School District. The elementary district has about 1,825 students in kindergarten through the sixth grade. Savanna serves parts of Anaheim, Buena Park, Stanton and Cypress. Incumbent president Arthur C. Brown is not seeking reelection, and Gary Krieger is the only member on the five-person school board seeking reelection in the Nov. 8 election.
