This morning, Long Beach Schools Superintendent Dr. Jay Smith gave an update to members of the Gulf Coast Chamber on things going on in the district.
Last August, Long Beach voters approved a $20 million bond that would bring improvements to Long Beach High School.
Smith said since the bond passed, the school board has been working around the clock to start the improvements on the school. He says they are about 85 percent finished with the plans. “We are looking at demolition to begin in early June with construction to begin shortly thereafter. So, we are going to take down 20 classrooms and we are going to replace those classrooms with 36 brand new classrooms and an academic complex.”
They are also planning to add tennis courts.
