Change is in the air for some schools in Ventura County.

Campus Canyon College Preparatory Academy is getting ready to become Moorpark Unified School District's first K-8 campus.

It currently only goes to fifth grade.

Sixth grade will be added next year. Seventh and eighth grades will be added the following two years.

In Oxnard, the school district plans to add seventh graders to Juan Lagunas Soria Elementary School in the fall.

The expansion is expected to help ease overcrowding at middle schools.
