LOS ANGELES (AP) - A day after banning movie and TV filming on campuses, the Los Angeles Unified School District says there will be a handful of exceptions.

Superintendent Ramon Cortines announced a temporary suspension of film shoots on Thursday while the district investigates reports by KNBC-TV that some productions disrupted classes and damaged equipment. One 2011 movie even included nudity in a school parking lot.

On Friday, Cortines said he met with legal and other staff to review all approved filming activities. Based on the information, Cortines says five filming-related licenses will be allowed to move forward over the next week and other productions seeking permission to shoot will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

However, Cortines says he won’t formally lift the suspension until the district reviews its filming procedures.
