This November voters within Long Beach Unified School District boundaries will have the opportunity to decide the future of local educational facilities.
The Board of Education has placed Measure E, a $1.5 billion school repair and safety bond initiative, on the Nov. 8 ballot in response to strong public support for repairing aging schools.
About 50 percent of funds that will be available if Measure E is approved would go to air conditioning systems and related infrastructure improvements at LBUSD campuses.
Students at three middle schools in the Long Beach Unified School District will be able to play on new all-weather athletic fields, thanks to Measure K.
The opening of two new classroom structures and a cafeteria at Jordan High School this winter will mark the completion of the first buildings of a $144 million total renovation of the North Long Beach campus.
About this Newsletter: Building on Success provides updates on campus improvements and construction in the Long Beach Unified School District. These school facility projects are funded by Measure E and Measure K. Local voters approved both measures.
