LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is expected to welcome back students at a campus in South Central as more than 500,000 Los Angeles kids head back-to-school Monday.

The mayor is scheduled to attend an opening day pep rally at Santee High School for over 3,000 students.

LAUSD students on traditional school calendars are expected to return to school Monday citywide. That means 501,700 seats will be filled in the nation’s second-largest school district, as measured in kindergarten through grade 12 enrollment.

District-wide, some 175,000 pupils are already well into the fall curriculum, as they attend year-round schools or independent charter schools on LAUSD campuses.
