I am 16 years old and attend Hoover High School. I play hockey and I want to know why Glendale does not have any type of rink for hockey players. There are new fields for baseball by the Glendale (2) Freeway and a skate park. I play in Burbank for the YMCA and Burbank's Bull Frogs travel team. I've tried to start a club team for my school but that was denied because of reasons unknown. I've already heard of high schools in Burbank with teams. I know many play in Glendale and I know it won't be a waste of money or time for a rink to be built in Glendale.

Hasmik Danielian, a co-principal at Hoover High School, spoke to about 1,000 educators last week at a student accountability institute in Santa Barbara. Danielian spoke about how schools with large populations of English-language learners create master planning schedules for the school year. Out of its 2,678 total students, Hoover has 882 English language learners, which is about 33% of the school's population, officials said. Hoover uses a language appraisal team, made up of administrators, teachers, district officials and counselors to study student progress and determine which classes to place English language learners into, Danielian said.
