PARADISE, Calif. - Volunteers and donations across the country have helped to make this happen- the Paradise Unified School District is three weeks away from starting classes back on the ridge.

Almost 10,000 work hours were put into helping the district prepare for this coming school year.

Assistant Superintendent Tom Taylor said prior to the Camp Fire the district had 3,300 students enrolled.

And now for this school year, they're expecting 1,200 students to come back - that's a little over half of their students lost. Taylor said the district also lost about a third of their staff.

But that's not stopping them from staying positive and opening their doors for this coming school year.

Taylor said up in Magalia, Pine Ridge and Cedarwood will be opening - with Cedarwood being the largest populated elementary school in the district.

What was Paradise Intermediate is now a consolidation of Paradise and Ponderosa elementary - and will be known as the Paradise Ridge School.

And Paradise High will be a junior and senior high school.

Taylor said a new location for Ridgeview in Magalia is still being determined.

School starts on August 15th.
