FAIRFIELD — School starts in a few weeks and for most students that means reuniting with friends, seeing teachers new and old and revisiting the textbooks they shoved aside for the summer.
For the future Public Safety Academy students, however, the school year will start with a little more uncertainty and a lot of change.
The Fairfield-Suisun School District Public Safety Academy, a paramilitary school, will start instruction at its Atlantic Avenue location Aug. 15.
The academy, teaching fifth- through eighth-graders, is a first-of-its-kind school in Northern California. It will train students in the careers of police, fire, courts and social work, among others.
