School Building Plan: Measure K
Measure K is a ballot initiative, approved by 71 percent of voters in November 2008, which makes available $1.2 billion from property taxes to build, renovate and improve schools in the Long Beach Unified School District. The funds come from issuance of a series of bonds to occur four to six times in about ten years.
Since the measure was approved, steady progress is being made to reconfigure and rehabilitate Long Beach Unified School District's aging schools. The funds made available by Measure K has been budgeted to address the most critical building needs of the district.
Check out the major projects under construction or being planned for the next several years. The first to be built with Measure K funds, Nelson Academy in Signal Hill, opened in fall 2012. McBride High School, the first of a number of small high schools being planned, is opening in fall 2013. Other Measure K projects in the pre-construction or construction stages include Newcomb Academy, Roosevelt Elementary School and the new swimming pool at Cabrillo High School.
Other Measure K projects include removal of portable structures, installation of new boilers and development of districtwide wireless technology and centralized clocks and security systems.
