Click here to add
Claremont Unified School District is seeking interested individuals to serve on the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee for Measure G.
On November 8, Claremont voters passed Measure G, a $58 million bond measure that authorized funding for district facilities repairs and upgrades, as well as new construction projects.
State law requires that the CUSD Board of Education appoint an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee to work with the district.
In accordance with Education Code Section 15278(b) the committee shall:
• inform the public concerning the district’s expenditure of Measure G bond proceeds;
• review expenditure reports produced by the district to ensure that Measure G bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure G; and
• present to the board in public session an annual written report outlining the committee’s activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Measure G proceeds.
To qualify as a committee member, an applicant must be at least 18 years old. Employees, vendors, contractors and consultants of CUSD are prohibited by law from being members of the Citizens’ Oversight Committee. Employment which could result in becoming a contractor or subcontractor to the district would also be a potential conflict.
If you have an interest in serving on this committee, applications are available by visiting the Kirkendall Education Center, 170 W. San Jose Ave., or can be accessed online at cusd.claremont.edu. Completed applications should be sent to the superintendent’s office, and are due no later than 4:30 p.m. on January 3, 2017. Mail completed applications to: Superintendent, Claremont Unified School District, 170 W. San Jose Ave., Claremont, CA 91711.
