LBUSD to seek voter approval of bond measure on November ballot


Long Beach voters will be asked in November’s election to approve a $1.7 billion bond measure that would pay for upgrades at L.B.U.S.D schools and create new programs, according to multiple reports.

📚Election:

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.
