INDEPENDENT CITIZENS’ OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE VACANCIES
(Lemon Grove, CA) The Lemon Grove School District Governing Board has announced that it is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders to fill two vacancies on the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee for the Proposition W School Facilities Bond program. The current vacancies must be filled by the parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District; a parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization; an at-large community member; or a community member who is active in a senior citizens organization.
On November 4, 2008, voters residing within the District passed Proposition W, a $28 million bond measure which authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects to schools within the Lemon Grove School District. Proposition 39 requires a 55% super majority for approval; this bond was passed by 72%. After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, state law requires that the District’s Governing Board appoint an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee to work with the District.
The committee shall inform the public concerning the District’s expenditure of Proposition W bond proceeds; review the expenditure reports produced by the District to ensure that Proposition W bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in Proposition W;and present to the District’s Governing Board, in public session, an annual written report outlining their activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Proposition W bond proceeds.
All appointments will be made by the Governing Board from applications submitted to the District.

Lemon Grove School District Encourages the Community to Participate in Planning
The Lemon Grove School District has embraced the state’s new school funding process, which includes increased participation from parents and the community.
As part of the budgeting process for next school year, the district is working to put together a Local Control and Accountability Plan, or LCAP. The plan is part of the state’s new funding system, known as the Local Control Funding Formula, and is intended to better align academic plans with spending plans. We are currently in the process of developing this plan and have included a number of recommendations made by community members, parents, and staff at meetings that have been held throughout the district in the past few months.
In order to create a plan that supports and accelerates all learners in our district, we still need the community to assist us in reviewing the work that has been done thus far,and also in suggesting the work that is yet to be done. As you continue reading,you will learn more about the LCAP. Additionally, you will be invited to participate in its development by using a link on this page.
Please take some time to read over the LCAP DRAFT by clicking here. A blog has been established on this page which will provide you with an opportunity for input. When you have questions or concerns, please submit them to the blog. They will be posted, along with a response from me, within twenty-four hours. Please click on "comments" to leave your ideas.
