A Franklin Middle School teacher is scheduled to appear in court next month on charges that she had a five-month sexual relationship with one of her eighth-grade pupils, Baltimore County police said yesterday. The teacher, who taught Spanish at the Reisterstown school, was suspended with pay after the pupil's father notified police of the allegations in March. Neither school nor police officials told other parents about the investigation. Charles Herndon, a spokesman for Baltimore County schools, said yesterday that the principal at Franklin Middle, Lynn F. Wolf, didn't make an announcement when the allegations surfaced in March because the teacher was not immediately charged.

Baltimore County police have charged a 12-year-old Franklin Middle School pupil with possession of an explosive/incendiary device after school officials found vials of household chemicals in his locker Tuesday. Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a police spokeswoman, said the seventh-grader was arrested on the felony charge late Tuesday. Police are withholding his name because he is charged as a juvenile. The chemicals are being analyzed, but the boy told police the vials contained a mixture of an anti-static spray and hydrogen peroxide, Warehime said.

Baltimore County police evacuated Franklin Middle School in Reisterstown yesterday afternoon after five vials of flammable substances were found in the locker of a 12-year-old pupil. Police said the seventh-grader told administrators that he was trying to sell the substances to other pupils as bomb-making ingredients. Sgt. Dean Brubaker of the arson and hazardous devices unit said a preliminary investigation showed that the materials were household chemicals that, if combined with "certain incendiary devices," could become explosive.

Baltimore County school officials yesterday proposed transferring almost 600 elementary and middle school students over the next two years to relieve crowding, in the system's first widespread redistricting in several years.The proposed boundary line changes, which would affect eight schools, came as school officials formally released new long-term plans to handle student enrollment growth and the system's aging buildings.The plans -- which come after last week's announcement of new enrollment forecasts through 2007 -- include a new, 592-seat elementary school in Woodlawn and a larger-than-expected new elementary in Owings Mills.
