School is back in session for some children on the Southwest Side of the city.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel rang the school bell Monday morning to signal the start of classes for UNO's Octavio Paz Charter School students.

The UNO Charter School Network extended its school day and school year one year ago.

Students will receive 190 instructional days and a seven-and-a-half hour school day.
