Jake Clark, who has coached Archbishop Carroll's football team to back-to- back appearances in the Catholic League title game, said yesterday that he was taking a one-year sabbatical to further his education. "Jake told me about a week ago and we've been working on how to handle it, whether we could name an interim coach or if we needed to post the job," Carroll athletic director Chris Scattergood said. "It came as a shock to me, but I think it's something Jake definitely had to do. I fully support him going to school for a year.

Never mind that in Holiday (1938), released during the Depression when most people felt lucky to have work, Cary Grant was seen as heroic; his character refused a stodgy Wall Street job in order to take a restorative sabbatical. George Cukor's adaptation of the Philip Barry play takes on an easy target: high society. But it hits so squarely, you forget that society is a problem only for people unfortunate enough to be trapped by it or who want to be trapped by it. Grant is wonderful as red-blooded Johnny Case.

Frank M. Kinniry's specialty is teaching math to fifth and sixth graders. And for 10 years that is what he has done, working in the same classroom in Highland Elementary School in Abington. But this fall, having returned from a one-year sabbatical spent traveling, Kinniry has been assigned to trade classes and classrooms with a fourth-grade teacher. He'd rather fight than switch. Kinniry has sued the Abington School District, contending his transfer violates the state public school code.

Bill Fox has pushed the pause button on his illustrious basketball coaching career. The stop button could be next. Fox, 464-220 with three Catholic League championships in 24 seasons at Father Judge High, yesterday informed his players and school administrators that he is taking a sabbatical for the upcoming season. He declined to predict an absolute return for 2000-2001. "All I know right know is that I'm going to take this season off," Fox said. "I had a very good meeting with our principal, the Rev. Robert Mulligan, and he understands my feelings.

The state law governing sabbaticals for educators that Springfield Gop chairman Charlie Sexton wants to change has not been a point of contention in school districts, according to a state Department of Education spokesman. "If people want it changed, they're free to try," press secretary John Clark said. The education department would respond to changes proposed by lawmakers, Clark said. "But it's not wise to anticipate the legislation that might be introduced. " The target of Sexton's campaign is a provision that gives school boards authority to waive the requirement that educators return to work for at least a year after a sabbatical.

With teacher contract negotiations scheduled to begin after the first of the year, Phoenixville Area School District trustees appear to be letting their constituents know that they will be cautious with taxpayers' dollars. An application for a sabbatical by a business-education teacher who wants to tour the East Coast from Maine to Florida and possibly visit England and France was tabled last Thursday after a board member questioned the educational value of the trip. The board tabled the proposal despite advice from professional staff that such year-long paid sabbaticals are in keeping with the board's contract agreement with the teachers and that such leaves have been granted in the past.

It's official. John "Whitey" Sullivan, producer of four Catholic League football championships and a 106-43-5 overall record in 12 seasons at Father Judge, will take a one-year sabbatical from football and has filed papers with the Archdiocese in hopes of gaining a one-year sabbatical from teaching. No interim coach has been named, although defensive coordinator Bill Edger is believed to be the front-runner. Athletic director Henry King, speaking on behalf of the Rev. John J. Dennis, Judge's principal, said a decision should be announced "in one or two weeks.

Pennsbury school board member Elyse Accardi said she wanted embattled Superintendent George DiPilato to leave with "dignity. " Fellow board member Alan Farneth said DiPilato was offered a year-long sabbatical - after his contract expires June 30 - because of the board's "untenable situation. " But board chairman Beth Neamand was a bit more succinct: "Offering the sabbatical is insurance that George would take the leave of absence. " Controversy has dogged DiPilato since he arrived at the school district in February 1989, and it appears his departure will be no different.

Keep reading, but don't believe a word of it. I don't. This electronic box of tricks I confide in, and entrust my secrets to, has turned informer. It's saying that I'm going to goof off for a year, that I'm sneaking off to Washington to "take the king's shilling" to write for the Reagan Administration . . . How do you stop this blabbermouth machine? I thump it on the side. I hammer it on the top. It's relentless; it grinds on. Across the screen moves word of my defection from the business that's fed the kids, bought me beer and booze, and after some palavering, a pair of mittens for the lady of the house (she says it's cold where they turn the pages in the parish choir)

With his elbow propped comfortably on an armrest, Dave Lebo sat no more than 10 feet from where he had guided the 1987-88 Carlisle basketball team to its greatest triumph. The vantage point was deliciously symbolic. His seat at HersheyPark Arena for North Carolina's non-conference game last month against Towson State was in the first row, close to the action and near his son, Jeff, the Tar Heels' versatile senior point guard. But Dave Lebo was seated behind the Carolina bench - and behind North Carolina coach Dean Smith.

Maddy Schulte doesn't know how many goals she has scored this season. "I have no idea," she said. Then she laughed, as if to say, "That's the whole point I've been trying to make. " "I'm not keeping track at all," she added. "This season is just about fun and having a good time with my teammates. " It's really that simple. Schulte comes from a lacrosse-crazed family. She started in kindergarten and played year-round for a high-level club team. She was a star athlete with all the makings of a future Division I player.

Penny Nixon, the Philadelphia School District's chief academic officer, is taking an educational sabbatical, effective Nov. 1. The sabbatical was announced to principals Friday in an e-mail from Nixon, and to other staffers in an e-mail from William R. Hite Jr., the new superintendent. Nixon, who has overseen academics during a tumultuous time in the district, will finish her doctoral studies at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education. District spokesman Fernando Gallard said the sabbatical was solely for Nixon's studies and was not related to investigations of state exam cheating.

Hart will receive a salary-and-benefits package worth $620,500 annually, plus moving and transition expenses. She starts her new job July 1.

When Temple announced in September that Hart would be leaving, a school official said she also would receive a sabbatical for the 2012-13 school year.

I just got off the phone with my pal John Jackson, feeling a little guilty for aiding and abetting him in blowing his race diet. Not that he ever wanted to make a lifestyle change. Jackson reminded me that it had been two months since he broke his self-imposed race fast, in which he tried not to talk about race, read about race, or think about race. An exercise that must have required supreme discipline, given that Jackson is an African American professor of anthropology at Penn who makes his bread and butter talking and writing about racial and cultural identity.

NEW YORK - Though one of the foremost pianists of his generation, Till Fellner requires a detailed artistic introduction. Fellner, born and raised in Vienna and star student of the legendary Alfred Brendel, takes on the most substantial repertoire at the earlyish age of 38 and tends to triumph. His ECM-label recording of The Well-Tempered Clavier is one of the most highly acclaimed discs of its kind in recent years. Now, he's finishing up a three-year complete cycle of Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas and recently added Philadelphia to his American tour, filling in for an indisposed Ivan Moravec in a Philadelphia Chamber Music Society concert at 8 Tuesday night at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater.

After 15 years as a major figure on the Philadelphia rock scene, former A?s lead singer Richard Bush decided it was time for a sabbatical. Just a little time off to regroup, maybe write some new songs; the year was 1993. It would be another 13 years before anyone in the public heard from him again. "He just called me out of the blue last fall and said he wanted to be a player again," recalls Tin Angel booking agent Larry Goldfarb. "I remembered him well from his days with The A?s; when they broke up, I booked his new bands a couple of times at the Empire Rock Club.

Tiger Woods will take time off from the PGA Tour while his father battles cancer, the world's No. 1 player said yesterday. Woods said it was possible he would not make an appearance in a golf tournament before the U.S. Open in June. He did not give specific details of his planned break, except to say he would not start playing "for a while," and the failing health of his father, Earl, would have a major influence on his future schedule. "It's kind of up in the air with the situation back home, so I don't know what's going to happen," said Woods, who is in New Zealand to attend the wedding of his caddie, Steve Williams.

Gerald and Stephanie Wright's young daughter has had three fourth-grade classroom teachers at John S. Jenks School in Chestnut Hill since the start of the school year, and on Monday, she's slated to meet the fourth. The Wrights are outraged at the lack of educational continuity, which they said at times has left their daughter Nzingha less than excited about school. They blame six-month teacher sabbaticals - allowed under state law - which can leave a classroom subject to turnover during the course of a school year.
