School District seeking members for Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee
The committee helps authenticate projects for Measure M bond
– Paso Robles Joint Unified School District (PRJUSD) is looking to fill at least seven seats on its Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) to help authenticate projects for Measure M. Measure M is a $95 million bond recently passed by voters to upgrade and modernize the elementary and middle schools in the district. The committee serves a vital role to the community and its taxpayers in reviewing proposed projects, reviewing expenditures of current projects, and informing the public concerning the use of funds from Measure M.
The law requires the committee to be a specific size and membership. Members are appointed by the Board of Trustees to serve two-year terms and no more than three consecutive years. Regular meetings are held, at minimum, every other month. In addition, sub-committee meetings will be held as needed.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old to be considered as a candidate for the CBOC. Potential members may not be an employee or official of PRJUSD and may not be a vendor, contractor, or consultant to the district. The Board of Trustees is particularly interested in applicants who are:
• A parent with a child enrolled in PRJUSD
• Active in a business organization
• Active in a senior citizen organization
• Active in a taxpayers association
• Active in a PTA/PTO or School Site Council in PRJUSD
• A member of the Planning Commission
An application, along with a description of committee responsibilities, may be downloaded from the district website or obtained at the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Office at 800 Niblick Road. Interested parties may also request an application by calling 769-1000 ext. 30105 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Filing deadline is Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 5:00 P.M.
