Serra High School students have raised $2,000 in donations to help a fellow classmate in need of a kidney transplant. Griselda Sanchez, 19, suffers from end stage renal disease. Neither of her kidneys can filter the toxins in her body, according to Dr. Jorge Ortiz, director of the renal transplant program at UCI Medical Center. Without a transplant, she could die, he said. Their goal is to raise $5,000, according to Serra High School teacher Sue Chance.

SAN DIEGO -- Two high school football coaches and a teacher are each being suspended for two days without pay after posting pictures on Facebook showing themselves wearing blackface and costumes meant to mimic the famed Jamaican bobsled team, school officials announced Friday. Cindy Marten, superintendent of the San Diego Unified School District, announced the suspensions flanked by officials from the local chapter of the NAACP and the Anti-Defamation League. Marten said the three have "expressed a deep sense of remorse" and added that they have said they will not contest the suspensions.

Opponents of Junipero Serra High School's plans to build athletic fields and a performing arts center in San Juan Capistrano have begun circulating petitions to force the City Council to rescind its approval of the $75-million project or put it before voters. The council approved the complex in northwest San Juan Capistrano this month over the objections of Native Americans, environmentalists and neighbors.

The school had originally planned to open on 35 acres in San Juan Capistrano, but negotiations broke down with the property owner, Crystal Cathedral Ministries. Junipero Serra is a private Roman Catholic high school sanctioned by the Diocese of Orange.

Supporters of a religious high school have submitted petitions that could force a citywide vote on a proposal to rezone a parcel of land to allow construction of Serra High School. The signature campaign is intended to clear the way for construction of the school at the intersection of Camino Capistrano and Junipero Serra Road. A hotel and commercial facility are planned for the site. Plans to build the school on nearby land owned by a Christian ministry fell through when the Rev.

High schools in the Capistrano Unified School District will be able to nearly double the number of computers available to students this year, thanks to almost $1.7 million from a state grant. The grant, announced last week, will allow the district to buy 1,117 computers for its five high schools, which now have about 1,400 computers. The grant will lower the ratio of students to computers to less than 5 to 1. The district's four comprehensive high schools will split most of the money.

The 27 young women striding through the halls of Inglewood's Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital bright and early on Tuesday mornings wear white lab coats and purposeful expressions. It would be easy, at first glance, to mistake them for members of the medical staff. But these 13- and 14-year-olds are high school freshmen, the first class admitted to a new Health Careers Program at St. Mary's Academy across the street.
OPINION

Re "J. Serra High Isn't Playing Games," Aug. 10: This article left out some very important information. First of all, the school's developers did not "win" City Council approval. They bullied their way into City Hall by way of a ballot initiative (in which they misled the public as to what they wanted to build and what would be built if they did not sign). Then they backed the City Council up against the wall, forcing it to either violate the city's general plan and approve a school where city staff adamantly opposed it, or be forced into a costly special election.

Orange County's newest high school opened Wednesday in San Juan Capistrano, with picketers reminding the uniform-clad students, parents and civic boosters of the controversy surrounding the campus. Junipero Serra High School, five years in the planning, was welcomed by a Juaneno Indian who stood alongside school supporters, and targeted by other Juanenos who protested plans for the school's athletic complex to be built atop ancestral burial grounds.

Growing increasingly desperate to find a home for a religious high school, Junipero Serra boosters are trying to persuade San Juan Capistrano officials to dump plans for an office and hotel complex in favor of school athletic fields. Organizers had hoped to open the school this fall on nearby land owned by a Christian ministry. But that deal fell through nine months ago when the Rev.
