LOS ANGELES, CALIF., School in Watts was unanimously approved today by the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education.

The project includes 52 new classrooms in two- and three-story buildings that accommodate two academies and a new gymnasium; converting the administration building into offices, eight classrooms and a library; changing the girls’ gymnasium into a performing arts building with three classrooms; and turning the weight room into a girls’ locker room and the girls’ locker room to food service facilities.

The Jordan High School Redevelopment Project is expected to be completed in 2015.

The Jordan High School campus was recently divided into two new small schools, one run by the charter operator Green Dot Public Schools and the other by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, a nonprofit organization that works within the district managing non-charter public schools.
