Lynwood Unified Creates New Facebook Page to Update Community on Measure K Facilities Projects
Lynwood, Calif. – As part of efforts to ensure Lynwood Unified keeps its community informed on the expenditure of Measure K dollars, the District has created a new Facebook page dedicated to construction updates, news and information related to the facilities bond measure, which was passed by Lynwood voters in 2012.
The social media page is one more avenue the District is utilizing to reach its community. In addition, Lynwood Unified regularly provides updates via newsletters, website updates and email news blasts.
“Clear communication with our community, parents, staff and students in all facets of our educational system is paramount,” said LUSD Board of Education President Briseida Gonzalez. “Their support of this bond measure is allowing us to maintain, upgrade and revitalize our schools, so it’s our priority to inform them about how their tax dollars are being spent.”
The District’s largest projects – new classroom facilities at Washington and Lincoln elementary schools – were recently completed in time for the start of the 2014-15 school year. Over the last two years, Lynwood Unified has repaired campuses across Lynwood Unified through painting, concrete, roofing fencing, and gymnasium upgrade projects.
“These construction projects have been essential to the proper maintenance of our schools so that we have safe and comfortable learning environments for generations of Lynwood students,” said LUSD Superintendent Paul Gothold. “This Facebook page was a great recommendation by our Citizen’s Oversight Committee as another tool for Lynwood Unified to continue the open communication we have and value with our community.”
The Facebook page is available at www.facebook.com/LUSDMeasureK. Learn more about Lynwood Unified at www.facebook.com/LynwoodUSD, by following @LynwoodSchools on Twitter, or by visiting www.lynwood.k12.ca.us.
