CITY OF INDUSTRY – Hacienda La Puente Unified students, teachers and staff are benefiting from a number of facility improvements during the 2021-22 school year, which include modernized classrooms, new interior paint, roofing restorations and the installation of solar panels.
Many of the upgrades were completed over the summer, ensuring students and employees returned to refreshed classrooms on modernized campuses.
Such projects include the installation of solar panel parking lot canopies at Los Altos High School, Workman High School, Wilson High School, La Puente High School, Willow Adult School and the District Office; locker upgrades at La Puente High School; new interior paint at Valley High School and Orange Grove Middle School; roofing restorations at Newton Middle School and Workman Elementary School; and the installation of new ceiling tiles and lighting at Sunset Elementary School.
The facility upgrades were made possible by a variety of funding sources, including Certificates of Participation (COPs), Deferred Maintenance Funds, Power Purchase Agreements, and the voter-approved Measure BB to provide safe, high-quality learning environments that support student achievement.
The next phase of improvements will include additional roofing restorations, and upgrades to HVAC systems, pool facilities, locker rooms and classroom renovations at a number of schools.
“Hacienda La Puente Unified is thankful for the opportunity to upgrade our facilities for the benefit of our students, teachers and staff,” Superintendent Dr. Alfonso Jiménez said. “We eagerly await additional improvements in the works, which will help ensure Hacienda La Puente Unified continues to provide our community with safe and nurturing environments.”
