Central, La (NBC33) — It was the first day back at school for students in the Central Community School District.
The district has grown over the past year. There are now more than 4,300 students attending the district's five schools, which is an increase of around 500 students compared to last year.
Central became an independent school district back in 2007 when it broke away from the EBR Parish School System.
