Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee Application

measure g logo

The Board of Education has established an independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) for the successful bond election on the June 2016 ballot. Proposition 39 requires that such a committee be established if a school bond is passed that is subject to the Proposition 39 provisions. The Committee’s purpose is to monitor expenditures from the bond and to ensure that bond revenues are used only as specified in the bond and to inform the public about bond expenditures.

The CBOC shall consist of at least seven members who will serve for a minimum term of two years without compensation and for no more than three consecutive terms. While consisting of a minimum of at least seven members, the citizens’ oversight committee shall be comprised, as follows:

  • One member shall be active in a business organization representing the business community located within the district.
  • One member shall be active in a senior citizens’ organization.
  • One member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization.
  • One member shall be the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district. 
  • One member shall be both a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district and active in a parent-teacher organization, such as the Parent Teacher Association or school-site council. 

PURPOSE

Because the District elected to pursue a bond election under the provisions of Proposition 39, Statelaw requires the District to establish a Citizens’ Oversight Committee appointed by the District’s Governing Board. The Committee purposes are:

  • To actively monitor all projects and expenditures approved by the voters.
  • To provide proper oversight and accountability to ensure that Measure G funds are used as they were intended.
  • To report to members of the community on the progress of Measure G projects.


DUTIES

Duties of the Committee will include:

  • Ensure Bond funds are spent only on projects listed in the Bond Project List and that no funds are used for salaries or general operating expenses.
  • Monitor progress of Bond projects.
  • Receive and review copies of the annual performance and financial audits of Bond projects as required by California State law (Proposition 39).
  • Provide information to the public on the progress of Bond projects and expenditures of Bond funds.
