NEW YORK, New York--March 8,1995--As part of its ongoing surveillance
efforts, Moody's Investors Service has
placed under review nine California
school districts because of potential financial difficulties.

  This is in addition to the 11 school districts in href="">Orange County, California
already under review.  This action is in response to the California Department
of Education's recently issued semiannual memorandum addressing the financial
status of California school districts.

  The First Interim Report for the 1994-95 school year lists two districts
with Negative Certification and 57 districts with Qualified

  Negative Certification is assigned to districts that will not meet their
financial obligations for the remainder of the fiscal year; Qualified
Certification is assigned to a district that may not meet its financial
obligations for the remainder of the fiscal year.

  Consistent with our past practices, Moody's will publish a fuller discussion
of the rated districts after release of the state's second and final interim
report for the 1994-95 fiscal year in May. Significant developments for any of
the districts will be reported as reviews are completed.

  Moody's maintains debt ratings (unenhanced by insurance) on 20 of the 57
qualified districts; five districts have ratings based on bond insurance.  
Neither of the districts with Negative Certification is rated by Moody's.

  The 57 Qualified districts include all 27 districts in Orange County, of
which 11 districts are rated by Moody's.  The inclusion as Qualified reflects
the districts' limited access to funds invested in the Orange County
Investment Pool (OCIP) as a result of the pool's large investment losses and
its subsequent bankruptcy filing on December 6, 1994.

  Chowchilla Union High School District in Madera County is also Qualified
given its involvement in the Orange County Investment Pool. In a memorandum to
the districts in its jurisdiction, the Orange County Department of Education
noted that the state finds that the districts are "extremely well managed and
governed," and that the Qualified Certification is a result of the OCIP
bankruptcy proceedings.

  Of the districts in the county, only Orange Unified School District has been
previously listed as Qualified in the first interim report of 1993-94; this
status was noted in January 1994 when Moody's assigned an A rating to the
district's COPs.  The rated school districts in Orange County are being
reviewed as part of Moody's surveillance of OCIP participants.

  Currently, the bankruptcy court and the creditors' committee are allowing
school districts to withdraw up to 30% of their monies in the pool, although
some districts with urgent needs may withdraw up to 50%.  The aggregate
withdrawals by all school districts cannot exceed 30% of the districts'
investments.  Such withdrawals are for emergency operating purposes such as
meeting debt service and payroll.

  Using these guidelines, Moody's has contacted each of the school districts
in the OCIP for a preliminary assessment of their liquidity and ability to
meet near term debt service requirements.

  To date, Moody's has reviewed cash flows and held extensive discussions with
Irvine Unified, Centralia Elementary, Santa Ana Unified and Capistrano Unified
School Districts.  These four districts will remain under review pending
further clarification of the status of the OCIP.

  For further information on these districts, please see the respective credit
comments published February 10 on Centralia Elementary and Santa Ana Unified,
February 23 on Capistrano Unified, and March 7 on Irvine Unified.  Moody's is
continuing our discussions with the other seven districts to obtain additional
documentation. We expect to report on their status over the next few

  The following is the complete State Department of Education's list of school
districts that received Qualified or Negative Certifications for the first
interim report of fiscal year 1994-95. Although Moody's does not rate all the
districts, we have provided this list as a service to our subscribers and have
included the assigned classifications of the individual districts.

  Ratings are for general obligation bonds unless otherwise noted. Negative
