Voters living within the Long Beach Unified School District boundaries should have begun receiving election handbooks and ballots. This year, there are multiple state propositions on the Nov. 8 ballot.
The LBUSD Board of Education placed Measure E, the Long Beach Unified School District Repair and Safety Measure, on the November ballot.
Measure E Official Ballot Question
“To improve outdated classrooms/neighborhood schools by: improving technology/labs/career education classrooms/electrical systems/wiring; upgrading handicapped accessibility/earthquake safety; upgrading bathrooms, fire alarms/sprinklers/security cameras; removing lead paint/asbestos; installing air conditioning; improving student health/physical education; repairing/constructing/acquiring facilities/equipment, shall Long Beach Unified School District issue $1,500,000,000 in bonds, at legal rates, requiring independent audits, citizens’ oversight, no money for administrators’ salaries/pensions; and all funds used locally?”
The bond measure, if enacted, would cost homeowners approximately $5 per $100,000 of assessed – not market – value per month.
