Long Beach USD Measure K School Improvement Projects
Construction of the new Browning High School in Long Beach gets underway in 2015, after more than a year of preparing the ground and leveling the sloping hillside.
Two other new campuses: Roosevelt Elementary and Newcomb K-8 Academy, are nearing completion, with openings scheduled for fall 2015. This summer, a public open house is planned to give the community a preview of the modernized facilities.
Meanwhile, work progresses on new classroom buildings in the early phases of a $136 million, seven-year renovation of Jordan High School.
Other upgrades, such as state-of-the-art security and telecommunications systems, are are continuing districtwide.
Future Measure K projects in the early planning phases include a $40 million renovation of Renaissance High School for the Arts and conversion of the Hill Classical Middle School campus to a small high school, replicating the California Academy of Mathematics and Science, a nationally honored LBUSD school.
The former Butler Performing Arts School will be converted to a small high school, to open in fall 2017.
Plans are underway to convert the former Jordan Freshman Academy into yet another small high school.
Additional project priorities may be identified, subject to available funding. The district’s Facility Master Plan identifies $4 billion in school facilities needs.
