LESD Set to Begin Vast Modernization Project for Schools

In November 2016, the voters of Lawndale generously approved Measure L, a general obligation bond that will provide the Lawndale Elementary School District with $27,000,000 to improve outdated and worn facilities. This summer, the District will embark on the first of several projects to utilize those bond funds. The first projects will be to replace leaking and worn roofs and provide a fresh coat of exterior paint on the buildings. Because we offer student summer programs, the work will only occur at certain sites this year, with plans to improve other sites in the near future.

 

“Our Governing Board and school district employees greatly appreciate the community’s investment in the school district and in our students. Investments that we make in our schools now improve the future of our community,” said Dr. Gretchen Janson, LESD Assistant Superintendent of Business Services.

 

 

Overview of Summer 2017 Measure L Projects

 

Roofing: This project involves the complete re-roofing of FDR Elementary, William Green Elementary, and William Anderson Elementary. The roofing being installed will come with a 30-year warranty and will help to mitigate the water damage we saw at those sites during the heavy rains last year.

 

 

Painting: William Green Elementary, William Anderson Elementary, Will Rogers Middle, and Jane Addams Middle will all receive a fresh coat of paint this summer. This will provide an improved and more appealing appearance and provide a protective coating to all exterior walls.

 

The District has worked diligently with the construction companies to make them aware of both the City’s Noise Ordinance, as well as Dust Control and Mitigation requirements during the course of the project.

Every effort will be made to reduce inconveniences caused by the construction project on the general public. The Lawndale Elementary School District appreciates the Lawndale community’s understanding and cooperation regarding this vital improvement project.
