El Camino Real may become charter school

WOODLAND HILLS, LOS ANGELES El Camino Real is the defending national academic decathlon champion.

Under the charter school format, the Woodland Hills school would leave the Los Angeles Unified School District and become an independently managed charter school.

Charter schools are publicly financed and independently run.

The charter school issue was on the agenda at Tuesday's school board meeting.

Barring any roadblocks, final approval could come within the next six months.
