LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Unified School District is breaking ground on the last of more than 100 campuses that were funded by a $27 billion bond program.
Students, officials and community leaders are set to gather Saturday in suburban Maywood to commemorate the start of construction on South Region High School Number Eight.
It's the 131st school built under the bond program.
The campus will accommodate about 1,200 students and boast science labs and a library. It is scheduled to open in 2017.
