Districts look for new uses for shuttered buildings

In Sacramento area, many campuses now are housing charter schools

From The Sacramento Bee: The San Juan (Calif.)Unified School District has shuttered 10 schools in the past five years and is considering closing more, as are the Sacramento City Unified and Folsom Cordova Unified school districts. Tight budgets and decreasing enrollments are forcing districts to consider school closures, despite their unpopularity. Districts are repurposing many of the campuses so they don't stand vacant.
