Four new Baltimore County school board members and a student representative were sworn in yesterday morning and promptly given their first homework assignment: Read a thick stack of reports and materials in preparation for tonight's board meeting.

In a lunch meeting with county schools Superintendent Joe A. Hairston and school board President James R. Sasiadek, the new board members were briefed about the 12-member panel's meeting and appointment schedule. They were advised against taking notes during discussions of personnel decisions. And they were asked to meet with the school system's technology coordinator at their homes to hook up laptop computers, cable modems, high-speed Internet connections and fax machines.

The new members - Luis E. Borunda, president of The Signman Inc.; Frances A.S. Harris, legislative assistant to county Republican Dels. A. Wade Kach and Patrick L. McDonough; Roger C. Janssen, a construction manager and vice president of the countywide PTA council; Ramona N. Johnson, deputy director of the Fannie Mae Baltimore Partnership Office; and student Nicholas Camp, a junior at Catonsville High School - were appointed Friday by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.

In making the five-year appointments of the four regular board members, the governor passed up two members who had sought second terms.
