El Camino Real could be getting sports boost

June 7, 2011 |  9:26 am

Now that Woodland Hills El Camino Real has become a charter school, the sports program could be getting some aid if the school decides to accept more open-enrollment students.

Last year, it took in a little more than 100. This fall, that number is expected to increase. It's up to the school to decide how many to allow in, though much depends on space availability.

More than 400 students have applied for this coming year for open enrollment at El Camino Real. If you want to know how important open enrollment is to an athletic program, check out Woodland Hills Taft, which has used open enrollment to fuel its success in football and basketball, allowing students from all over Los Angeles to attend the school.
