Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee

  •  

    Following the passing of the Measure S Bond in April 2011, the Board of Education established the Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) in accordance with the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act. The CBOC oversees the expenditures of bond proceeds generated from Measure S to inform the public and generate an annual report to the Board of Education.

     

    The CBOC held its first meeting on August 29, 2011, shortly after the Measure S bond was passed. The Committee is comprised of seven members appointed by the Board of Education and representing the following areas. CBOC members are appointed to either one- or two-year terms, and may not serve more than three (3) consecutive terms or a maximum of six (6) consecutive years. The Committee meets quarterly.
