Twice a week at the end of the day at Robert P. Heideman Elementary School, rather than heading to play, students gather in the library to begin their studying. They don't even seem to mind it. In a program recently developed among the city, Heideman and Silicon Systems, employees from the Tustin-based company take a couple of hours each week to assist first- through fifth-graders in math, reading or homework. The one-on-one tutoring program began Sept. 14 and has grown from six children to 15.

The first thing Alex Tempel did after waking up Monday morning was to mark off the final day on the makeshift calendar he has kept next to his bed for the last 300 days. Then he flew home. The calendar is a sheet of construction paper on which his father had written rows of numbers, from 300 to 1. At 14, Alex is still learning the concept of weeks, months and years. But by marking off each number, he knew he would be another day closer to leaving Randolph, Mass.

Over protests from nearly a dozen parents, Tustin Unified School District trustees approved new boundaries for Tustin and Foothill high schools. The school board voted unanimously at a capacity-crowd meeting on Monday to approve the boundary changes that will affect almost 300 students. Officials said the new boundaries will even out the two schools' attendance numbers and more evenly distribute minority students.

The Tustin Unified School District voted 3 to 1 Monday to make several revisions to the high school graduation requirements, which will affect current eighth-graders graduating in 2004. One revision increased science requirements from two to three years to comply with new state standards, and will add earth science to life and physical science. Research and technology, a new semester computer course, was added as a required class. Students may test out of the course.

Residents will soon have more access to school campuses for recreation, under a plan recently adopted by the Tustin Unified School District Board of Education. The issue was raised several months ago by area residents, many with small children, who asked that campuses be more accessible during non-school hours, said Brad Lantz, the district's director of facilities and security. The new policy "ensures that gates will be open and that community members can have access," Lantz said.

Words are everywhere at Lambert Elementary School in Tustin. The classrooms, the school garden, the little paved paths leading to and from the cafeteria, all are decked with bright painted block letters spelling out vocabulary words. Even physics is taught using poems, such as one about the scientific method second-graders were chanting last week: "Ask your questions. Find them out. Look for answers without a doubt."
