Volunteers are being sought to advise the Long Beach Unified School District on the development of policies and procedures relating to the use of and disposition of surplus property.
Community members are invited to apply to serve on LBUSD’s Asset Management Advisory Committee. According to state law, the committee must represent the demographics of the school district, which serves Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill and Catalina Island.
The Board of Education is accepting applications now from individuals representing businesses, teachers, administrators, parents and people with expertise in environmental impact, legal contracts, building codes and land use. Meetings will occur once or twice a month for up to four months once the advisory committee is convened.
The school district owns non-school real property that will not be needed for district purposes. Prior to disposing of the surplus property, the Board of Education is required to form an advisory committee that provides input. Duties of advisory committee members include:
- Reviewing projected school enrollment and other data as provided by the school district to determine the amount of surplus space and real property;
- Establishing a priority list of use of the surplus property that will be acceptable to the community;
- Publicizing a priority list of the surplus property and conducting hearings for community input on acceptable uses, including sale or lease for child care development purposes;
- Coming to a consensus and forwarding to the Board of Education its recommendations.
