Hoping to boost enrollment in two of the district's smallest schools, the Brea-Olinda Unified School District has adopted a new policy that will make it more difficult for students to transfer to other schools. By unanimous vote, the Board of Education Monday banned student transfers from Laurel Elementary School and Olinda Elementary School, starting in school year 1993-94.

In a new look at the harmful effects of student transiency, a team of University of California researchers has concluded that teenagers who change schools--particularly if they are Latino--are far more likely to drop out than those who remain at one school during their high school years. The study, covering two groups of students in California over six years, found that more than half of all who dropped out had changed schools.

Parents who want to transfer their children to another school in the Tustin Unified School District must make the request between March 13 and April 7, according to the district's director of student services. Brad Lantz said that application forms will be available beginning March 1. If the number of students applying for transfer to a particular school exceeds the openings, a lottery will be conducted, he said. The rest will be placed on a waiting list.

Elementary school children in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa are no longer tethered to their neighborhood schools, now that the school district has lifted its 2-year-old ban on transfers. The Newport-Mesa Unified School District enacted the moratorium on student transfers between elementary schools because of the booming population in those grades and the requirements of class-size reduction. But parents complained they didn't have enough flexibility regarding what school their children attended.

I wish to take exception to Lee Harris' article, "ROTC to Be Added at Lynwood Campus" (Southeast / Long Beach section, Sunday, July 7). ROTC on high school campuses is a controversial subject and to treat it so superficially demeans The Times and patronizes us all. The Lynwood trustees' rationale (to prevent 5 or 10 student transfers) is, of course, ludicrous; Principal Larry Tripplett's contention that ROTC is part of an "upgrading of the entire curriculum" is equally absurd. But my objections are directed elsewhere.

It's open enrollment time at Los Angeles Unified schools. From now until May 24, students may apply to attend any public elementary, middle or high school--except some magnet campuses--regardless of where they live. For students who apply to schools with limited spaces, placement is not first-come, first-served, according to Shel Erlich, a Los Angeles Unified School District spokesman.

Since 1990, state law has required school officials to inform teachers of any student who has caused or attempted to cause serious injury to another person. Under the law, school districts must provide information to teachers based on records received from law enforcement agencies or other districts. But Ventura County school officials said that, in many instances, they never know the full history of a new student.

For the first time in its history, a financially pressed UC Irvine has turned away several thousand qualified transfer students, including many who had been assured of entry if they completed their first two years at a local community college with a minimum grade of C-plus. UCI officials attribute the problem to an unprecedented 17% surge in transfer applicants even as budget cuts have compelled the university to hold campus enrollment growth below 2% when classes begin Sept. 30.

Glyn Milburn was given his unusual first name by his mother, who wanted her youngest son to stand apart from the crowd. She needn't have bothered. Milburn has carved a niche for himself in college football. A junior at Stanford by way of Santa Monica High and Oklahoma, where he spent a year before transferring, Milburn ranks among the most dangerous and explosive all-purpose runners in the country.

Chrissy Chang, starting point guard for the UC Irvine women's basketball team the past two seasons, is leaving the program, Coach Colleen Matsuhara said Tuesday. Chang averaged 4.3 points and 2.3 rebounds and led the team with 103 assists as a sophomore last season. She started 24 of 25 games she played in, and missed two games with a sprained ankle. Irvine finished with a record of 5-22 in Matsuhara's first season as coach.
