As a student in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I have found that communication is often an insurmountable obstacle. District officials neglect the opinions of teachers and administrators, and the students suffer. There are not enough supplies, and there is no funding for field trips. However, the teachers still try their best to make do with what little they have, and most of them do a great job. Therefore, I was not surprised when the most senior staff began to depart from the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies one by one ("Parents Say Bureaucracy Is Luring Teachers Away," Oct. 27)

Why just complain about student performance? Why not do something about it? Schools need to start encouraging parent involvement through family-oriented activities and make tutoring programs more available to those students who need help. Some schools have even instituted mentor programs, and other schools should certainly follow their lead. Maybe, just maybe, this would give LAUSD something to brag about. Maybe, just maybe, it would raise test scores, but who knows--you can never know for sure until you try. RACHEL MORGAN Student, Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies

Perhaps Coach Gary Barnett and everyone else at the University of Colorado should sit down for a long chat with the administrators of the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies [Eric Sondheimer's column, May 30]. Sherman Oaks Principal Bob Weinberg actually knew how to act like the "adult in charge" by declining a baseball playoff invitation because his team exhibited a disappointing lack of commitment to the game. Integrity and ethics were underlined and upheld. Would the L.A. Times please fax a copy of the article to Elizabeth Hoffman at Boulder?

"My uncle was murdered a few years ago. It took two months for the police to find them and three months to find them guilty . . .

Students and school employees Wednesday mourned a 13-year-old girl who a day earlier collapsed on campus and died a short time later at a nearby hospital. They placed flowers and balloons where Vanessa Escobedo, an eighth-grader at the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, had collapsed on Tuesday about 12:30 p.m. Efforts to revive Vanessa at the school, and later at Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center, were unsuccessful. She was pronounced dead at the hospital at 2:06 p.m.
