FIRST BELL 🔔 What’s Happening with Los Alamitos USD’s Bond Measure Money?
In 2018, residents in the Los Alamitos Unified School District voted to raise property taxes to finance a $97 million bond measure to pay upgrades at the district”s nine campuses and especially the 50+-year-old Los Alamitos High School campus.
At LAHS, that includes the $9.2 million aquatics center that opened in 2020. and the gleaming high-tech three-story S.T.E.M. building now under construction (to open next school year), but funds for a second gymnasium may have been dealt a severe blow by inflation.
