CCUSD Needs You – Independent Citizens Bond Oversight Committee Applications Due Jan. 16

The CCUSD Board of Education recently had the first reading of a resolution for an Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee and Bylaws.

Oversight Committees of this nature are typically formed after a Bond measure is passed. The Board took the unusual and proactive step of voting to establish this committee in advance of the March ballot. This is in order to demonstrate a willingness to be accountable to the community, engage in meaningful conversations about how the money will be spent, and commit to full transparency. By activating the committee early, the Board wants to rebuild trust with the community as the committee will keep an eye on the Bond and provide updates.

Another difference is that, while a committee is required to have seven members, this Bond Oversight Committee will expand to 15. Committee membership will include one parent or family member representative from each school site, city leaders, and members of parent organizations, with the superintendent and assistant superintendent of business services facilitating. Legally this Committee is only required to meet once per year. However, it will meet quarterly and report to the Board twice per year and more often as needed.

The District is now accepting applications, which are due by January 16, 2024. The Board encourages you to apply. The application is available here.

Applications will be vetted and presented to us as a slate of recommended committee members for approval at the upcoming board meeting on January 23, 2024. The Application Review Committee is made up of labor partner presidents, city leader representation, parent representative, a school site leader and Mike Reynolds, CCUSD’s Interim Assistant Superintendent, Business Services; Dr. Brian Lucas, CCUSD’s incoming Superintendent; and Dr. Maria Martinez-Poulin, CCUSD’s Interim Superintendent.
