 Recently I visited the Jefferson High Library to conduct research on the history of the school. As I gathered data, four individuals from the Los Angeles Unified School District walked in to conduct a survey of the library that will provide input to the Board of Education as plans are being finalized for the school’s 130 million-dollar renovation project.
