1972. Second graders charge out with joy from Dayton Heights Elementary School (in the Virgil Village neighborhood of East Hollywood), as summer vacation begins. Teacher Jill McKay, at the rear, waves goodbye. The school first opened in 1909. Total enrollment in the Los Angeles Unified School District was about 625,000 students in 1972. That number peaked at about 750,000 in 2005, but has since dropped to about 550,000 today.
