Why has the District placed Measure RR on the ballot?

Every student deserves access to a safe, secure, and updated school, that supports 21st century teaching and learning. With that said, the reality for LA schools is that while some new schools have been built, and others have been modernized, more than 70% of our public-school buildings were built more than 50 years ago. Many are deteriorating and do not meet today’s standards for learning and safety. Such disparity is unfair and puts students at risk of falling behind in preparing for college and careers simply because of where they live. Measure RR will make sure that more students get access to updated and modernized schools.
