The brick, two-story home under construction at 6300 Eastern Star Way, in Columbia's River Hill Village, is starting to come together.Having kept close to schedule throughout the winter, the work crew -- all of them students from the Howard County School of Technology -- hopes to put the finishing touches on the three-bedroom home and its two-car garage by the beginning of June.Their labor on the $325,000 house, including almost all of the design and construction, is the swan song of a vocational education program that over the past 17 years has erected nine homes in Howard County.

Howard County's ninth public high school, scheduled to open in August 1994, could become a comprehensive technical school where computer-assisted design is down the hall from algebra.Whether that happens -- or whether vocational and academic studies are joined in another way -- depends on school board reaction to suggestions in a report submitted last week by a vocational-technical education study committee.Currently, vocational students split their school day between their home schools and the School of Technology.

After years of inflated enrollment projections, Howard County Schoolof Technology officials are now anticipating anything from a slight drop to a possible gain of 100 students for next fall.The 1991-1992 figures are crucial because 11 teachers at the School of Technology are among 24 in county schools who have been told that low enrollment in their programs could mean layoffs or cutbacks from full- to half-time jobs.But the situation now is far less grim than it appeared when the notices went out in April, James R. McGowan, associate superintendent for administration and instruction, said Tuesday.

The Western School of Technology and Environmental Science in Catonsville is scheduled to reopen Friday after an early-morning fire Thursday damaged two portable classrooms and the roof of the high school's main building, school officials said. Staff worked Thursday to prepare the building for reopening and ensure that it would be safe for students, school system spokesman Mychael Dickerson said. Firefighters responded to the school in the 100 block of Kenwood Avenue about 2:34 a.m. Thursday for reports of a possible fire and found one portable classroom engulfed in flames, with the fire spreading to a second portable classroom, according to the Baltimore County Fire Department.

Schools to open 15 minutes earlier Beginning with the 2007-08 school year, all Harford County public high schools and one of the school system's middle schools will begin and end 15 minutes earlier. The change -- moving starting and ending times to 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., from the previous 7:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. -- will allow buses that transport high school students to complete those runs in time to pick up middle school students. The county school board approved the change last fall on the recommendation of Superintendent Jacqueline C. Haas.

For nearly two decades, Anne Peach has taught graphic arts at a Catonsville high school using Apple Macintosh computers, knowing her students would use that system in the working world. But the Apple logo has given way to the waving Windows icon in Baltimore County schools' graphic design and multimedia computer labs, and Peach is furious. "We have," she said, "potentially thousands of students who are potentially not going to be prepared after this year's class." Most of the county school system's computers are PCs running Microsoft Windows software, but not in the labs for the graphic and multimedia programs, until now. School system leaders say the move makes sense because it will make it easier to provide technical support and because graphic design software is available for both platforms.
