People listen to Brentwood Union School District Superintendent Merrill Grant during an informational meeting about the opening of the new Mary Casey Black Elementary School in Brentwood, Calif., on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. The school has sat vacant for two years due to the district's uncertainty over growth and its budget. Now there will be more than 500 elementary school students who will attend the new school after the district's attendance boundaries are adjusted. (Doug Duran/Staff)
