Schools and Libraries

June 2, 2014


In a special ceremony following the Long Beach High School Senior Awards Night on May 29, current Long Beach Board of Education members and district administrators invited past Board members to join them for the dedication of a plaque commemorating the completion of the Alumni Field, the new wing and other renovation work at the high school that was completed through the School Preservation Plan. Among those in attendance were Board President Patrick Gallagher, Board Vice President Dr. Dennis Ryan and former Board members Lynn Gergen and Gina Guma, who served on the Board of Education that spearheaded the School Preservation Plan projects throughout the district. Former Board President Franklin Alvarado and former Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert Greenberg, who were also instrumental in bringing the project to fruition, were unable to attend. The Board of Education will be dedicating a plaque for the Middle School at its June 10 meeting. Plaques for Lido, East and West schools will be dedicated at each school's moving up ceremony.

The projects were completed through the passage of a bond approved by voters in May 2010.
