20 new schools to open as part of LAUSD building program

Miramonte Elementary School's scheduled reopening this fall as a smaller campus that is off the year-round calendar is a result of L.A. Unified's decade-long building program to relieve overcrowding.

Students will head to South Region Elementary School #12 depending on where they live, said district spokeswoman Monica Carazo.

South Region Elementary is one of 20 new schools that are scheduled to open Aug. 14, Carazo said. Once these schools open, only three schools, including two elementary and one high school, will remain on the year-round calendar, Carazo said.

That is in marked contrast to the 227 schools the district had on year-round calendars during the 2002-3 school year, Carazo said.
