LBUSD to seek voter approval of bond measure on November ballot
The Long Beach Unified School Board voted unanimously at Monday’s meeting to put the bond measure on the November ballot.
The measure would require 55% of the vote to pass and would be re-paid with higher property taxes, about 6 cents per $100 of assessed value.
The total cost of the project could reach $4.1 billion.
The funds from the bond would pay for the Facilities Master Plan to renovate schools, additional security measures, expand pre-K programs, new technology, new green spaces, and convert libraries.
🧠Keep this in mind:
It is the fourth time in the last 15 years that L.B.U.S.D has placed a bond measure on the ballot.
Earlier this month, the LBCC Board of Trustees decided not to move forward with a bond measure that could have paid for upgrades to Veteran Stadium due to the unlikeliness the item would pass, per the Post.
