The Coast Community College District may cut parity funds for part-time teachers this year to help overcome a $24-million budget shortfall. The Board of Trustees plans to vote Wednesday on whether to cut the funds, which are given to part-timers at the end of each academic year to bring their salaries closer to the amount full-time teachers make for teaching the same classes. The state allots the money to districts, which in turn pass it on to instructors. Board President Jerry Patterson said any cut to part-timers' pay would come with a heavy heart, but the district is seeking to trim expenses anywhere possible.

Students grabbed wire and filled clear-plastic Petri dishes with tiny blue, white, red, yellow, green and pink beads. Settling in at one of six brown lunch tables, science teacher Gloria Treece began explaining to the almost entirely female audience how to string, twist and assemble the materials into DNA earrings or a keychain. The after-school, extra-credit activity was a jump start to the Spring View Middle School seventh-graders' next three chapters on DNA where they will learn about genetic traits, family inheritance and genetically changed plants and read about current events like the genetic engineering of plants.

At the beginning of the academic year, Ocean View High School added 20 extra minutes of potential learning time after each class. Three months in, students are seeing significant changes. The embedded tutorial program gives students more time for learning, tutoring or homework, and rewards high-achieving students with an extra break. School officials say the program has increased attendance, curbed bad behavior and reduced the number of students who are failing or in danger of failing.

The little-known ex-governor walked up to strangers on the street, extended a hand and drawled, "Hi, I'm Jimmy Carter, and I'm going to be your next president. " Landon Fichtner, a first-time candidate for Huntington Beach City Council, has a similar approach to campaigning – although, in his case, it's closer to "Hi, I'm Landon Fichtner, and I recommend that movie.

It isn't very often that students take fashion tips from their teachers, but then, teachers don't normally dress as thugs and women out for a night on the town. At Marine View Middle School on Wednesday afternoon, educators were teaching students what not to wear with a parade of dress-code violations – and a few "do's" – through a fashion show at a back-to-school assembly. "Take a hint from your teachers today and avoid these fashion don'ts," said fashion show emcee Kristin Spencer, an eighth-grade science and Spanish teacher.
