A study of enrollment in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District shows that high schools throughout the district are only 50% to 60% full, but elementary and middle schools are more crowded--with one at 113% of capacity. The overcrowding problem is most urgent among schools that feed into Newport Harbor High School, said Dale Woolley, director of planning and program development, who presented the figures to the board Tuesday.

One possible escape route from underperforming schools will be shut off at the end of the month unless legislation is passed to keep it open. The "district of choice" program that has allowed school districts to enroll students from outside areas is scheduled to expire July 1.

The bell rang at Garden Grove Avenue Elementary School in Reseda on Wednesday morning for the first time in 13 years, summoning a gaggle of students to classrooms reborn with peach-colored paint and bundles of new supplies. Like a number of other San Fernando Valley public schools, Garden Grove locked its doors in the 1980s after thousands of parents abandoned the Los Angeles Unified School District in the wake of mandatory school busing.

Enrollment at Los Angeles Unified Schools, the country's second-largest public school system, rose 2% from last year--the fifth year in a row that student population has increased, officials said Monday. The increase of 14,044 students brings the enrollment for kindergarten through 12th grade to 711,187, officials said. This year's gains include 7,575 more elementary school students and 6,469 middle school and high school pupils.

The city's three high schools will no longer accept students from outside the Irvine Unified School District, part of a new policy beginning this fall that will limit transfers throughout the school system due to lack of space. Enrollment projections in the 21,700-student school district show a steady increase in the number of students at the three high schools. A fourth high school in north Irvine is not set to open until fall, 1998. Acting Supt.

Enrollment estimates for the Los Angeles Unified School District released Monday show steady increases for the next five years from the record high reached last fall. The long-term projections, recalculated after an unexpected surge of 18,570 new students in September, predict a gradual boost of 2% each year, nudging enrollment up from 667,000 this year to nearly 718,000 in the fall of 2001.

The middle-aged man who had watched teachers demonstrate at a rally last week wagged a finger to emphasize his point. "It's a crying shame that a community as rich as Tustin won't pay their teachers a decent salary," he said. The man then walked off, having vented his support last week for Tustin's striking teachers. But his comment only underscored the ignorance of many otherwise well-educated Californians about the topsy-turvy condition of school financing since 1973.
