People are getting excited about the far-reaching structural changes planned this fall for Olney and Audenried high schools. And no wonder: The two schools are implementing sweeping strategies to build smaller learning communities, address the problems of disruptive students, and increase class length for freshmen. Daily News education writer Kevin Haney reported last week that Olney will break its 2,900-student school into seven mini-schools. Audenried is instituting an "empowerment community" to provide students who have behavioral or academic problems with intensive instruction.

An error in classification pitted Audenried against host Del-Val Charter on Tuesday to determine the Public League's second representative in the PIAA playoffs. Audenried, which competed in the Pub playoffs as an AA squad, should have instead been classified AAA. Public League basketball chair Ben Dubin said the mistake was his and arranged the matchup to give the Rockets an opportunity to qualify for state play. The Division C Rockets took care of the rest. Behind important performances from several players, Audenried upset Division A Del-Val, 67-64.

Exiled Audenried High School teacher Hope Moffett met with two district officials Wednesday, but she's still in the "rubber room" and expects to face disciplinary charges, she said. "They intend to keep me out of the classroom for the foreseeable future," she said in an interview. In an hour-long "investigatory conference," Moffett - whose classroom ouster and subsequent refusal to remain silent on the subject have generated wide support for her among teachers - was charged with disclosing a document she had been directed not to discuss and allegedly endangering the welfare and safety of students.

WHEN I challenged people in the Audenried High School community to get mad enough to do something about their troubled school, I knew their first target would be me. Right on cue, the first e-mail I got was from a person who signed the short message "an Audenried neighbor. " "They don't want to hear from the community," he or she wrote. "You try to go up there and they just give you a run around. " It's a familiar lament. Every time I've ever talked about the responsibilities of parents, I usually hear from someone who says teachers and administrators don't welcome outside input and, my personal favorite, it's the school's job to educate.

Jaquay Williams' natural position is point guard. It didn't used to be, though. When the Audenried senior first started playing basketball at age 13, she was a post player. But over the course of a game, Williams does not seem to have a set position. "I play every position," she said. "Unfortunately. " There she was Monday afternoon, bringing up the ball. Next she'd be out on the wing, waiting to take a shot. A few possessions later, she'd post up down low and pull down a rebound before putting it in. The versatile Williams led all scorers with 22 points as the Rockets remained perfect in the Public League, beating Prep Charter, 64-50.

Philadelphia School District officials started recruiting new faculties for Olney and Audenried high schools last week by distributing fliers in the two schools telling teachers how to keep their present jobs and avoid transfers. The two-page "opportunity announcement" gives the School District another chance to fight with the city teachers union. The president of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers accused district administrators of violating the teachers contract. PFT president Ted Kirsch said the district issued the notice before the end of negotiations on criteria for retaining present teachers at the schools.

One thing that Audenried has not been known for in the past is basketball. But not this season. The Warriors, playing in the Public League after a five-year hiatus because of the closing of their old school building and the building of a new one, won their seventh game of the season after beating visiting Carroll, 62-55, in a Division D game Tuesday. That is the most wins for Audenried (7-1 overall, 3-0 league) since it went 10-9 overall, 7-7 in the league during the 2003-2004 season.

Tina Wiggins had her fair share of detractors when she accepted an offer to coach the boys' basketball team at Audenried, the Public League school commonly referred to as "The Prison on the Hill. " "They'd say, 'You know it's got that bad reputation and the kids are always fighting,' " said Wiggins, one of two female boys' basketball coaches in the Public League. "But, it's so different from how it used to be. " After playing last season at the junior-varsity level, Audenried reentered varsity play this season after a four-year absence.

In response to Monday's melee at Audenried High School that left six students with injuries, school district officials last night promised parents that they would upgrade campus security procedures and institute stricter enforcement of the district's disciplinary code. They also introduced the school's new acting principal, Bessie Young, the current assistant principal at William Penn High School, during last night's parents' meeting inside the auditorium. Audenried, which is in South Philadelphia and has about 1,000 students, is one of the city's most troubled high schools.

Students at Olney and Audenried high schools will be greeted by a lot of familiar teachers this September. That's not what School Superintendent David Hornbeck had in mind in February when he declared both schools academically distressed "Keystone schools" and announced plans to transfer three-quarters of the teachers in each school. But more than 130 teachers on Hornbeck's hit list were given the chance to return after a labor arbitrator ruled three weeks ago against Hornbeck's methods.

Ahmad "J.R. " Gilbert can score with the best. The 6-foot-7 senior forward has led Constitution High in scoring this season, and he even produced a 41-point game.

In addition to 15 points, Gilbert added 12 rebounds, three steals, and three blocks in the second game of a doubleheader that served as the league's overall quarterfinals.

SING SOME hymns. Listen to the sermon. Fight off recruiting bids by the coach of a prominent Public League basketball team. Such was life every Sunday last offseason for Qaadir Nock, who's now a senior at Charles Audenried Charter and continues to star as a wing guard. "Every week, he tried to talk to me," Nock said. "Nah, I never tried to avoid him. He's a good man. We're friendly. "I did give a little bit of thought to going to his school. But I knew he already had a lot of good players.

AVA REEVES, a senior at the new Universal Audenried Charter High School, bantered with Principal Robert Rouse yesterday after he chided her about her school uniform. "A senior with her tie not on and a jacket with the sleeves all turned up," Rouse admonished her in the school's cafeteria. "I don't have one," Reeves replied. "Can you get me one of those clip-on ties?" Reeves, 18, smiled during the exchange and so did Rouse, the new principal of Universal Audenried, at 33rd and Tasker streets.

THE SCHOOL REFORM Commission yesterday gave two struggling schools over to Universal Companies, the education and development company headed by music mogul Kenny Gamble, which admits it doesn't yet have a clear plan on how to improve the schools. Universal is getting Audenried High School and Vare Middle School as part of its goal to provide "cradle-to-career" services for a swath of poverty-plagued South Philadelphia, focused on Point Breeze and Grays Ferry. However, Universal has so far received only $1 million to put together a proposal for a federal "Promise Neighborhood" grant.

Valerie Smith Webb moved into one of the new homes built near Audenried High School six years ago and the mother of a teenage daughter quickly learned that the Grays Ferry neighborhood offers few opportunities for children. "Around here, you have children looking out of their window and seeing the tall buildings in Center City and they think it's New York," Webb said. "They don't have the opportunity to get out of the immediate area. They don't have connections with the arts. The closest library is on Broad Street and we're at 33rd Street.
