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.
