Prospective parents, some school board members and other residents boarded a school bus Monday morning for a tour of eight of the city's schools.
Culver City Unified Supt. Laura Plasse said the two-hour bus tour provided an overview of the district and showcased campuses' special programs for adults.
Participants visited a first-grade Japanese language classroom at El Marino Elementary, computer labs at Culver City Middle School and the new building at El Rincon Elementary.
Beverly Violin, whose grandson is a senior at Culver City High School, was impressed by the tour. "We smelled the food at the high school and it was very tempting," she said.
