LESD Modernizes Campuses for New School Year

Lawndale, CA, August 21, 2017– Over the summer, Lawndale Elementary School District (LESD) undertook several projects to improve their facilities and provide their students with high quality learning environments.


Two of the major projects were funded by Measure L, a general obligation bond approved by the Lawndale community in November 2016. Measure L will provide the Lawndale Elementary School District with $27,000,000 to improve outdated and worn facilities. Thanks to the community’s support, LESD’s facilities have undergone a major makeover, which includes:


1.         New Paint:  The Addams, Rogers, Anderson, and Green campuses received fresh coats of paint. This project has had a significant visual impact on the schools and improved the look of the surrounding community.

2.         New Roofing:  The Green, FDR and Anderson campuses received new roofs. While the visual improvement is not as drastic as the paint job, the district will not see as many leaks as they have over the past few years!


In addition to the aforementioned Measure L projects, the district also completed the following projects:


1.         Installing a sound fence along Marine Ave. for FDR Elementary.

2.         Projector Installation:  Interactive projectors have been installed in all LESD classrooms.

3.         New Water Fountains:  One new water fountain per campus will be installed at Mitchell, Twain, and FDR Elementary Schools. They will include a chiller, a water bottle filling station, and an upgraded filter. Students and staff will be well-hydrated.

4.         Fencing/Gates:  New fences and gates have gone up at Mitchell and Green Elementary Schools to improve the appearance of the campuses and support student needs.

5.         Grounds work: the LESD maintenance team worked throughout the summer to keep our campuses looking clean and inviting.


“All of this work would not have been possible without our Business Services Department’s concerted effort to support our students—a huge thank you to our Accounting, Purchasing, Maintenance, Food Services, and Technology teams! None of this work could have been completed without their perseverance. We are excited for our students and families to enjoy the updated facilities!” said Dr. Betsy Hamilton, LESD Superintendent.
