Deadlock on change in busing [Newspaper Article] — Belvedere Citizen / Eastside Journal — 30 January 1980
Deadlock on change in busing The school board deadlocked 3-3 Monday night on the question of allowing students who have ridden the buses in the integration program for the past three semesters to return to their regular schools this semester. The deadlock was on an emergency motion to approve the return of the students with start of classes this week, but it is likely the same split will develop next week when the motion comes up again. The matter came up when parents of Hale Junior High students who had been bused in the program said that the district’s original integration plan called for only three consecutive semesters of busing for students traveling further than 45 minutes a day.

Election will fill vacant board post [Newspaper Article] — Belvedere Citizen / Eastside Journal — 30 January 1980
Election will fill vacant board post One of the quieter election campaigns in recent city history comes to a close next Tuesday when some, of the voters of the Los Angeles School District will select a seventh member for the Board of Education. Some of the voters will do the selection, because no one expects a significant percentage of registered voters to cast their ballots in the runoff between attorney Tom Bartman and city commissioner Alberto Juarez.
