Huntington Beach, CA: The landscape has changed dramatically throughout Huntington Beach City School District over the past two years as construction of the phase 1 bond projects have been completed. The primary objective of the District’s Measure Q Bond Program is to prepare “future-ready” students for the next stages of their development as they start their secondary education and enter the workforce.
All nine campuses—seven elementary and two middle schools—received 21st Century demonstration classrooms, which served as learning labs to experiment with next generation educational tools, technology, equipment and furniture before they were implemented district-wide. Dwyer Middle School, Hawes Elementary School, Moffett Elementary School and Smith Elementary School received overall campus remodels in the Phase 1 program, which included classroom and science lab renovations, a new STEM academy and gymnasium, administration upgrades, new student union and cafeteria spaces, library to learning commons conversions and code/health/safety/ADA improvements.
What’s next? At Dwyer Middle School, modernization of the auditorium will be completed by Fall of 2020. Phase 2 remodels are currently under construction at Smith Elementary School and Seacliff Elementary School with estimated completions in Fall of 2020 and 2021, respectively.
