LOS ANGELES (AP) — School bells are finally ringing in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Unified School District got a belated start Monday as students returned to classes nearly a week after the normal start time.

The traditional day-after-Labor-Day start was bumped back as nearly 30,000 teachers took four unpaid furlough days to begin the year, part of an agreement with a city trying to find ways to fix a bleeding budget.

A handful of charter and year-round schools in the nation’s second-largest district were already in session, but the big majority will hear their first bells Monday.
