Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee

Purpose

The purpose of the Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) is to provide oversight of the District’s use of bond proceeds and report to the Board and public on their findings. Specifically, the CBOC will ensure all funds are used in support of the projects included in the bond measure and not for unspecified projects, general operating expenses, or teacher salaries. The CBOC will also review cost-saving measures and review the annual independent audits that are required of general obligation bond funds.The CBOC meets at a minimum of 3 times per year.
