SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It's the first day of school Tuesday for the San Diego Unified School District with many new activities planned.

The superintendent says the school year is not just about test scores.

It's the first day of class for more than 130,000 students in the district.

School officials say enrollment is up by more than 400 students compared to last year, and about 20,000 students will attend charter schools.

Lincoln High School's new principal John Ross is meeting with the Superintendent and Board of Education's President and Vice President from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.

They have an exciting school year planned for students, staff and parents.

Lincoln will launch its new S.T.E.A.M. Middle College which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering Arts and Mathematics.

They're collaborating with San Diego's Community College District. It's all to prepare students for higher education at an earlier age with a college professor on campus.

The District set up a new "Quality Assurance Office" to address any questions and concerns for parents, students and staff.

They're open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can call: 619-725-7211.

Drivers be careful and look out for speed limits around school zones and school buses. Police are also out in full force.
