Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times
Students walk along Saints Way, a main thoroughfare on the campus of Locke High School in South Los Angeles. Come July 1, Locke will be the first L.A. school operated by a private organization, Green Dot Public Schools. It is also the first school to undergo a form of reconstitution, meaning that every staff member must reapply for their jobs. Most won't be returning.
