After more than five hours of deliberation, Newport-Mesa Unified District trustees voted to remove from Corona del Mar High School the 11 students accused of participating in a detailed cheating scheme. Around 12:30 a.m., trustees emerged from their second closed session of the night to announce the board had approved the administration's recommended punishments - a stipulated expulsion - which allows the students to transfer to another high school in the district. Six of the 11 students have already left the district, said Board President Karen Yelsey.

He won't be the only prestigious name dropped at Newport Harbor High School's production of "Our Town," which opens Nov. 14 with some choice help from the theater community.

Principal Sean Boulton felt the first-day-of-school jitters as he stepped on campus at Newport Harbor High School. "I was welcoming new students this morning, and they were asking me where to find certain places on campus," he said. "I said, 'I'm just as lost as you are. Let's find it together.'" Around 21,000 students returned to Newport-Mesa classrooms Tuesday, saying goodbye to summer and hello to new school supplies and homework. To most students, this is a habitual return to the school-year routine, but administrators know this is a year of many changes for Costa Mesa, Newport Beach and Corona del Mar schools.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District campuses in Costa Mesa will be without a dedicated police presence when classes start Tuesday, according to school and police officials. Costa Mesa police said they don't have enough staff to field even a part-time officer specifically for schools as the department did in the spring. "We're going through a heavy attrition cycle and don't have the staffing to fill the positions," Costa Mesa police Chief Tom Gazsi said. Instead, patrol officers whose areas include Estancia and Costa Mesa high schools, will serve as police liaisons and spend as much time on the campuses as possible, according to police and school officials.
