Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee for BOND PROJECTS

posted May 8, 2019, 3:10 PM by Catherine Stone
Hello!  The District is getting ready to begin the bond projects using the funds from Measure H (thank you voters!), and we want your help! 

Under the provisions of Prop. 39, State law requires the District to establish a Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee appointed by the District's Board of Trustees. The Committee's purposes are focused on monitoring the expenditures - making sure that we are spending bond money on Bond projects. 

Duties of the committee will include:
Ensure Bond funds are spent only on projects listed in the Bond Project List and 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. 

The Membership of the committee is defined by law and consists of 7 members:
1 member must be an active member of the business community
1 member must be active in a senior citizens' organization
1 member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers' organization (proof required)
1 member shall be the parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District's schools
1 member shall be the parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District's schools and active in a parent-teacher organization

No employee or officer of the District may serve on the Committee, nor may any vendor, contractor or consultant of the District serve on the Committee. (Education Code Section 15282)

Meetings will occur quarterly once bond fund expenditures begin to be made.

Interested community members living within the Middletown Unified School District boundaries are encouraged to apply!  
For more information and an application, please see the attached documents or come by the District Office.  Applications are due in the District Office on May 31st by 4pm.
