A dozen more Long Beach Unified School District campuses will begin modernization projects this summer, and six schools will have completed renovations by this fall.
"We appreciate the patience and cooperation of everyone in our school communities as we make much-needed improvements in classrooms," said Superintendent Christopher J. Steinhauser. "We are making good progress so far and will continue our work until all campuses are fully modernized and air-conditioned."
Thanks to revisions in the Measure E implementation schedule, several LBUSD campuses will undergo modernization (including the addition of central air conditioning) sooner than previously expected.
The new Educare Los Angeles at Long Beach center, located at Barton Elementary School, has been completed and will soon open its doors to 159 children, from infants to five-year-olds.
The program is partially funded by Measure K, the $1.2 billion school bond measure approved by Long Beach voters in 2008.
Applicants are being sought to fill a vacancy for a parent/guardian of a LBUSD student on the Citizens' Oversight Committee for Long Beach Unified School District. The group consists of seven volunteers appointed by the Board of Education to oversee the Measures K and E school bond programs.
Sean Hitchcock, an Irvine native, moved to Long Beach 30 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. In 1997, he also started 2H Construction, initially in Long Beach and now headquartered in Signal Hill.
In the last 15 years, 2H has helped build or renovate more than 10 LBUSD facilities.
