New Furniture Installed in Half of LBUSD Schools
New desks, chairs and bookshelves installed in 883 classrooms across 22 schools this summer marked the midpoint of the Long Beach Unified School District’s plan to replace aging furniture in every K-12 classroom in the District.
Outdated classroom furnishings are replaced with new, versatile pieces that can quickly reconfigure for group work, independent learning or traditional classroom lectures. Most dated furniture is recycled or donated for reuse in underserved schools around the world, diverting a significant volume of waste from landfills.
More than 99,000 new furniture items have been installed in approximately 1,400 LBUSD classrooms to date. All District classrooms will have new, future-ready furniture by the 2024-25 school year.
New classroom furniture and other facility improvements are part of LBUSD's Learning Acceleration and Support Plan, which aims to elevate the educational experience for all students and offer interventions to learners who need additional support. Other infrastructure improvements in the District's multiyear plan include programs to increase teacher support and investments in technology.
