School opens after delay

WEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A West Philadelphia school welcomed students back to a new year Friday.

Global Leadership Academy Southwest started a few weeks late because of major building renovations.

Officials say they repainted, fixed broken doors and light bulbs and gave the school a more open feeling.

Children in kindergarten through second grade finally began classes.

Tuesday, the students in the next grade levels will have their first day.
