Now that Philadelphia school principals are officially Teamsters, the School District has asked the state Labor Relations Board to exempt more than 470 of the 750-member union from the ranks. In letters this week to principals and other members of the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators - now also known as Local 502 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters - district officials told the members they are requesting a "unit clarification" from the labor relations board.

Herman Mattleman, president of the Board of Education, blasted the leader of the school administrators' group last night for providing what he called misleading information to the district's 770 middle managers about talks between the group and the board. Mattleman said that School Superintendent Constance E. Clayton would send members of the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators (PASA) documents that rebut statements that PASA president Daniel J. McGinley has made about disputes that have prevented the settlement of longstanding complaints about wages and other issues.

The head of the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators will recommend today that his 750 members vote this week to affiliate with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, he said yesterday. PASA President Daniel J. McGinley argues that joining the Teamsters will give the district's middle managers more clout in their efforts to secure a new contract. Earlier this month, PASA's 31-member representative group voted overwhelmingly in favor of Teamster affiliation.

Talks between the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators and the school district soon will be moving forward for the first time in months as a result of an agreement reached in Common Pleas Court last week. Common Pleas Court Judge Edward Rosenwald signed an order Friday establishing a joint committee to study the administrators' wage scale. The nine-member committee is charged with submitting a report containing its non- binding recommendations to the Board of Education and to PASA by Aug. 31. PASA and the district began contract negotiations in December 1984, when PASA submitted a list of 110 demands, but money is at the heart of the dispute.

The Philadelphia Association of School Administrators (PASA) filed a complaint in Common Pleas Court yesterday, seeking a court order requiring the Board of Education to name a representative to a panel that would help mediate their contract dispute. In its petition for a preliminary injunction, PASA asked the court to find that it is covered by a 1949 law that permits the appointment of a three- member fact-finding panel to help mediate contract disputes. That law permits the secretary of the state Department of Education, PASA and the Board of Education each to name a representative to gather information, then issue a report with non-binding recommendations.

It was point and counterpoint at a state Labor Relations Board hearing yesterday as attorneys for both the Philadelphia School District and the group representing the system's principals traded charges. The School District contended that the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators was an "illegal unit" and announced plans to file unfair labor practices against PASA for "refusing" to concede that it does not have collective bargaining rights. Vincent Salandria, the School District attorney, added that the district would file a formal challenge with the Labor Relations Board of PASA's right to exist as it is now structured under the state Public Employe Relations Act of 1970.

Under the auspices of a Common Pleas Court judge, the union that represents school principals and the Philadelphia School District have agreed to form joint fact-finding committees to try to resolve a lingering contract dispute. The union president called yesterday's action in senior judge Edward Rosenwald's chambers a breakthrough and said he was pleased the court assumed jurisdiction of negotiations that have been stalled for 18 months. "As we see it, this is a basis for a settlement," Daniel McGinley, president of the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators.

About 250 members of the Philadelphia Association of School Administrators were urged by their leadership at a special meeting yesterday to join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Madeline Cartwright, principal of Blaine Elementary School in Strawberry Mansion and a member of PASA's executive board, said that from the reaction of the principals who gathered at the Ivy Leaf School in Germantown, "an overwhelming majority" would have voted to join the Teamsters. However, affiliation will require a two-thirds majority of the 750-member group, which represents School District principals and other administrators.

The Gloucester County Board of Freeholders voted last night to rent a county-owned 14-room home to a support group for battered spouses, in an effort to end what one freeholder described as a "distasteful controversy. " The board voted to direct its attorney to draw up a long-term lease for People Against Spouse Abuse (PASA) for use of a historic home on Hunter Street in Woodbury as a temporary facility for battered women and their children. PASA's plans to buy a home for its clients on Wenonah Avenue in Mantua had met with strenuous opposition from residents there.

USUALLY a Ken Burns television documentary is greeted with great anticipation. But hype for "The War," Burns' seven-part documentary about World War II that's scheduled to air in September on PBS television stations, has been anything but good, considering the outrage it has triggered among Latino organizations. Burns' documentary, which looks at the war from the perspective of four cities and towns, excludes the contributions made by America's Latinos who fought in World War II, they say. Estimates are that about 500,000 Latinos served in the war. And 12 were awarded Medals of Honor.

The state Department of Youth and Family Services has turned down Gloucester County's proposal to oversee a local domestic-violence shelter and instead will seek a new operator for the beleaguered facility. A few days before Christmas, the county Department of Human Services withdrew its proposal to run People Acting to Stop Abuse Inc. (PASA), a private agency that offers services for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. Human Services Director David Armor said the county had intended to hire interim directors and strengthen management policies until the state permitted the 14-year-old agency to run autonomously, which is expected in about a year.

They're hoping that a pair of new releases - the barrio melodrama Bound by Honor and the border-town action movie El Mariachi - will entice mainstream audiences into movies about Hispanic lives and culture. In so doing, moviemakers also hope to lure more Latino filmgoers into the theaters. Honor, directed by Hollywood veteran Taylor Hackford (An Officer and a Gentleman)

Lucile Pfleeger sat and watched yesterday as a tearful Elaine Wood testified about the nearly four years of physical and emotional abuse she said her former husband, Kevin Dailey, subjected her to during their three-year marriage. The abuse - it continued even after the divorce, Wood said, and included beatings and chokings and stalkings - did not stop until Sept. 1, 1988. That was when authorities said Wood's father, William, shot Dailey to death as his former son-in-law tried to force his way into the Woods' home on Huber Avenue in Monroe.
