Measure B was approved under California Proposition 39 which requires that the District establish, populate and empower an independent citizens’ bond oversight committee. By California law, a school district has 60 days from the certification of the election to form the oversight committee. It must be made up of a minimum of 7 volunteer members who serve terms of two years each. Composition of the committee must include representatives from the business community, a senior citizen organization, a bona fide taxpayer organization as well as parents with children in the district. District residents may also serve as at large members. In addition, no employee or vendor of the district can be a committee member.
