17 L ong Beach Unified School District The “Balancing Act” Mandated Priorities Health & Safety Repairs Stakeholder Needs Board Recommendations Facility Master Plan Recommendations Staff Recommendations Voter Expectations Prioritization of Projects

18 L ong Beach Unified School District Community & Stakeholder Priorities  Keep our schools safe, drug-free and gang-free. With more than 4,000 students on a single high school campus, Long Beach has some of the largest high schools in the state. By creating smaller learning environments, teachers and principals can better monitor students, provide more individualized attention, and instill discipline and respect.  Expand career education and job training programs. The economic health of our area depends on our schools turning out a trained work force that will be attractive to industry. This will ensure that local students have access to rewarding, high-paying jobs.

19 L ong Beach Unified School District Community & Stakeholder Priorities  Build more classrooms. More than 28,000 students attend class every day in portable classrooms, many of which are outdated and deteriorating. By building more classrooms, we can ensure that local students learn in high quality classrooms, with access to computers and other technology.  Strengthen and repair school buildings vulnerable to serious damage in a major earthquake. Our schools met earthquake standards at the time they were built, but newer standards have been enacted since then. We must retrofit school buildings that would be vulnerable to serious damage in a major earthquake.
