Each Friday, we post a roundup of local education headlines. Here are the big stories from this week:

  • Canyon High School in the Orange Unified School District has earned top honors in this year’s Orange County Academic Decathlon – but they’re not the only local school that will advance to California Academic Decathlon.
  • The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing is considering a new permit system that would effectively extend the amount of time substitute teachers can fill in for regular teachers out on medical leave.
  • A state mediator has been appointed to help settle a negotiations impasse between the Fullerton Joint Union High School District and the association that represents that district’s teachers.
  • A Dana Hills High student whose photo was omitted from the yearbook on the grounds that the keffiyeh worn on his head could be perceived as offensive is challenging that decision.
