More than 13,000 students in 522 classrooms on 18 campuses this fall are benefiting from completed Measure E campus upgrades, including new air conditioning and other interior and exterior improvements.
Two and a half years of planning and construction have resulted in completion of about one third of the 51 LBUSD campuses slated for renovations.
After retiring from more than three decades as a K-12 school business official, Michael Bishop is back in education, this time as a member of the school bond Citizens' Oversight Committee (COC) for the Long Beach Unified School District.
"Thank you for building this beautiful theater." Those words from a student were music to Tracy Nishihira's ears. Although she didn't personally build it or design it, she was instrumental in both the planning and construction of the unique black box theater and the newly rebuilt Renaissance High School for the Arts.
Renovating schools often requires teachers to move from their classrooms temporarily, a potentially stressful experience.
That's when Joy Filius, Andy Nguy and Natasha Godoy come to the rescue.
