The Board of Education is inviting community members to apply to serve on the District’s Citizens’ Oversight Committee, which is being established as a result of at least 55 percent of voters in the District voting in favor of Measure Q at the November 8, 2016, election. Proposition 39 requires that such a committee be established if a school bond is passed pursuant to a 55 percent (super-majority) approval.
Pursuant to Proposition 39, the general duties of the Committee are to:
- Ensure Measure Q funds are spent only on projects listed in Measure Q, and that no funds are used for any other purpose, including teacher and administrator salaries and other school operating expenses.
- Receive and review copies of the annual financial and performance audits with respect to the bond projects as required by state law.
- Provide information to the public concerning the expenditure of bond funds.
