Built to last: Former LAUSD Supt. Roy Romer, 89, surveys $20-billion school construction effort

Dec 29, 2017 by

Former Los Angeles schools Supt. Roy Romer gave an A+ to the polished cement under his feet this month at the newly constructed Maywood Center for Enriched Studies.

The cement had the sheen of the tile flooring that is common in most schools, but it should last much longer and cost less to maintain.

“That is one of the things we learned as we built,” Romer said.

Romer pushed through the nation’s largest school construction project while superintendent from 2000 through 2006. The Colorado resident was back in the Los Angeles Unified School District to see the fruits of that labor, as part of an extended 89th birthday celebration this month.
