The school board Thursday backed off a proposal that called for it to approve applications for grant money. However, the board reached a compromise, which will keep members informed when district staff applies for a grant. Board President Michael Verrengia had proposed that trustees provide more oversight of grant applications, in part because he is skeptical of some funds that come with conditions, he said. Verrengia suggested that the board approve applications before they are mailed.

One of Orange County's foremost critics of bilingual education has resigned as trustee of an Anaheim elementary school district after legal experts advised that he probably would lose a battle to sit on two school boards at once. The resignation of Harald G. Martin from the Board of Education of the Anaheim City School District was a victory for a prominent Latino rights activist who had accused Martin of having a conflict of interest.

Not only did Capistrano Unified School District trustee Mildred Daley Pagelow survive a massive heart attack Oct. 12, she only missed one board meeting before returning to the dais Monday. Pagelow, 71, said she was feeling better and that friends drove her to the meeting because she is not supposed to drive yet.

School board trustees Tom Chaffee and Rosemarie Avila want to teach children American values, reform bilingual education and keep the federal government off their backs. Wish them luck. While the two conservatives may be in lock-step with the nation's conservative political tide, they are the so-called minority members of the Santa Ana Unified School District Board of Education, and often are viewed by colleagues, school officials and residents as the school board rebels.

Conservatives swept the school board elections Tuesday, knocking off two incumbent trustees, as voters also overwhelmingly endorsed efforts to ditch bilingual education. The election gave the conservatives an apparent 6-to-1 majority on the school board, up from the narrow 4-to-3 edge they had held since 1993. It was a stunning defeat for the teachers union, which had opposed the board majority.
