Measure E Upgrades Planned

Planning is well under way for the first phases of Measure E school repairs and upgrades after local voters approved the $1.5 billion school bond measure last November. The Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education recently held a meeting where staff presented an estimated schedule of initial projects for the next three years. The entire implementation of Measure E could take up to 10 years, as schools receive air conditioning along with utilities, seismic, accessibility, fire alarm, lighting and other upgrades. Some schools will see new athletic facilities, including swimming pools and all-weather tracks and fields.
