Citizens' Oversight Committee

The Board of Trustees of the Centinela Valley Union High School District is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders which will serve as the independent Citizens' Oversight Committee ("COC") for the implementation of the District's Measure LP school facilities bond program, along with continued implementation of the Measure CV school facilities bond program.

 

Elections

On November 8, 2016, voters residing within the Centinela Valley Union High School District passed Measure LP. Measure LP is a $110 million bond measure that authorizes funding for needed construction and modernization projects in the District's schools. The measure required a 55% super-majority for approval; Measure LP passed with more than an 80% majority.

 

Establishment of a Citizens' Oversight Committee

After the passage of Measure LP, a Proposition 39 bond measure, State law requires that the Centinela Valley Union High School District Board of Trustees appoint a Citizens' Oversight Committee to work with the District. This committee may be merged with the district’s existing Citizens’ Oversight Committee.

 

Committee Responsibilities

In accordance with Education Code Section 15278(b), the Citizens' Oversight Committee shall:

  • Inform the public concerning the District's expenditure of Measure LP and Measure CV bond proceeds;
  • Review expenditure reports produced by the District to ensure that Measure LP and Measure CV bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in the Measures; and
  • Present to the Board of Trustees in public session, an annual written report outlining their activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Measure LP and Measure CV bond proceeds.
 

Appointment of Committee Members

All appointments will be made by the Board of Trustees from applications submitted to the District.

 

Time Commitment and Term

Some initial appointments will be staggered, such that some of the initial appointees will be appointed to serve a full two-year term. Ongoing appointments will serve a two-year term, but will be eligible for additional terms.
