Early College High School appears set to have a home this fall as the Newport-Mesa Unified School District and Coastline Community College ended a week of anxiety by reaching an agreement on a permanent facility. Last week, Newport-Mesa put a halt on student recruitment at Early College due to uncertainty over where the campus, which opened last August in temporary classrooms, would reside next year. Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard announced at Tuesday's school board meeting, however, that Coastline had agreed to house the school at its site in Costa Mesa.

For the first time in three years, Orange Coast College and Coastline Community College students returned to campus Monday morning to more classes and sharply reduced class wait-lists. Fewer classes and lengthy wait-lists have been frustrating realities for Coast Community College District students since fall 2010, in large part because of budget cuts handed down from the state, said Richard Pagel, OCC's vice president of administrative services. The district is able to open its doors to more students with the passage of Proposition 30, which guarantees additional funding to California's community college system through temporarily raised sales taxes and taxes on income above $250,000, Pagel said.
