Faced with crumbling campuses and swollen enrollments, the Long Beach Board of Education will ask voters to consider a $295-million school bond measure to pay for repairs and build schools. The board voted unanimously at a board meeting this week to put the measure on the next municipal election ballot in March. The money is needed to patch up and modernize schools throughout the district, add classrooms to existing schools and build 13 campuses, said district spokesman Dick Van Der Laan.

With a windfall $295 million heading for their coffers, Long Beach school officials will begin prioritizing the repairs and construction to be funded by the bond measure passed Tuesday. Final poll results show that 71% of the voters in the Long Beach Unified School District approved the bond measure, which required a two-thirds majority for passage. In all, 34,778 voters in Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill and on Catalina Island voted.

Money would be spent to repair and upgrade plumbing, heating and ventilation, upgrade electrical systems for computers and build 13 schools. No argument was filed against the measure.

The Long Beach Unified school board has approved $5.1 million in budget cuts that will increase high school class size, reduce custodial and grounds-keeping staffs and slightly decrease library, nursing and counseling services. As many as two dozen non-teaching employees, mostly custodians and groundskeepers, face layoffs. "We feel terrible about the cuts, but I don't know of any alternative," board President Bobbie Smith said after the vote this week.

The State Board of Education has repealed its voluntary school desegregation regulations, a move that could save the state millions of dollars in payments to local school districts. Critics, however, say that the action reduces the state's commitment to integration. In a case involving the Long Beach schools, the regulations were interpreted by the courts as requiring 100% state reimbursement for such voluntary desegregation measures as magnet schools.
