Stay informed about planning and construction of Measure K School Bond projects by visiting a new set of web pages.
Among the new web features is an interactive map with information on new and upcoming projects. Major projects also are featured on the map drop-down menu.
Approved by 71 percent of local voters in 2008, Measure K makes available $1.2 billion to build, renovate and improve schools in the Long Beach Unified School District.
Top priority projects include the building of a new, small high school at the site of the former DeMille Middle School, and a new middle school in Signal Hill.
Other projects in the planning stages are a new swimming pool at Cabrillo High School, a gymnasium addition at Lindsey International Studies Magnet, rebuilding of Roosevelt Elementary School, design of a new high school at the Browning site (3230 Hill Street, Long Beach), rebuilding of Newcomb Academy, and a major renovation of Jordan High School.
Additional funds have been set aside to address districtwide projects, such as boiler replacements, removal of outdated portable classrooms, and technology upgrades.
Measure K funds are designated only for school repair and construction, and cannot be used for operations, including administrator and teacher salaries.
