Oxnard, Calif., district shelve plans to build elementary school

Amid a grand jury investigation and other legal problems, Oxnard, Calif., school officials say they have shelved plans to build a new elementary school on prime farmland east of the city. The Oxnard Elementary School District's decision also comes after it missed a March 31 deadline and lost millions of dollars in state funding. The missed deadline, a lawsuit filed by a local planning agency and an inquiry by the Ventura County Grand Jury all made it more difficult for the district to choose the Emerson Avenue site for the $13-million facility.
