Parents and neighbors of Glenmount Elementary-Middle School called on Baltimore and state officials last night to start renovations sooner than planned, so that they'll know where the more than 500 students will go to school for the next three to five years.The building is in such poor shape that the students should not return there in the fall, some parents said at a community meeting. The city is not scheduled to finance the planning for Glenmount's repairs until July 1996, and the state is not scheduled to finance construction until July 1997.

The family of the alleged victims, city school administrators, and bullying and psychological experts are expected to testify over five days.
