Los Angeles School Supt. Bill Anton and two of his top aides have yet to make good on public pledges to cut their salaries by 10% and "share the pain" wrought by district budget cuts. Anton on Thursday called the failure "an oversight" and ordered the district's payroll department to begin immediate deductions to reduce his $161,390 annual salary by $16,139 this school year. "It's unfortunate . . . it was something I overlooked," Anton said.

The Los Angeles Unified School District, already reeling from $241 million in budget cuts, announced an additional $33-million shortfall Thursday that officials said could force increases in some class sizes and the elimination of 700 jobs. "This is devastating news to all of us," Supt. Bill Anton said at a news conference. The superintendent declined to detail his plans to deal with the latest budget woes until a school board meeting Tuesday.

Although the Los Angeles Unified School District still faces a $241-million budget shortfall, Supt. Bill Anton has scaled back a proposal to cut the pay of the district's 58,000 employees by 7% in the coming year. Instead, Anton has recommended cutting salaries by less than 3%--which would save the district $66.3 million, compared to the $164-million savings that the 7% cut would have generated.

Just before a school board meeting Monday, an assistant was telling Los Angeles School Supt. Bill Anton about a trip to Sacramento. The assistant, lobbying for state assistance, had wielded some of the political clout inherent in representing California's largest school district. In fact, he confided to Anton, he'd engaged in some "back room stuff." He'd even requested help from the Legislature's Mr. Muscle, Assembly Speaker Willie Brown. Anton nodded approvingly.

Pledging to "share in the pain" wrought by upcoming budget cuts, Los Angeles Unified School District Supt. Bill Anton volunteered Wednesday to return 10% of his $164,555 annual salary to the school system this year. Anton's $16,455 pay cut is but a tiny drop in the bucket for a district needing to trim $317 million from its 1991-92 budget.

Bill Anton agreed Monday to delay until February an order removing 100 teachers from classrooms with fewer students than expected. The decision could cost the financially strapped Los Angeles Unified School District up to $2 million in state funds, which are distributed on the basis of enrollment and earmarked to help pay teacher salaries.

After a heated session, the Los Angeles Board of Education voted 6 to 1 on Monday to approve proposals to give 27 schools more autonomy and allow them to operate outside of formal district policies. The vote followed a lengthy debate about whether the board should grant all 27 schools waivers of district policies when many of their restructuring plans appear to fall short of the goal of raising student achievement.
