Volunteers needed for Visalia Unified’s Measure A Oversight Committee

Citizens oversight committee ensures appropriate spending of school district’s $100 million bond measure

VISALIA – Visalia Unified School District is seeking applicants for the Measure A Citizens Oversight Committee.

The law requires that at least one member come from each of the following categories: be active in a business organization representing the business community; be active in a senior citizens’ organization; be active in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization; be a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in VUSD; and one member be both a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the district and active in a parent-teacher organization such as the Parent Teacher Association. The committee may not include any employee or official of the school district or any vendor, contractor, or consultant of the school district.

The committee members will be selected by the Board of Trustees to serve an initial two-year term, taking into account the applicant’s professional and/or practical experience, the applicant’s recognition in or contribution to his/her community, the diversity of experience on the committee as a whole and representation on the committee from various communities within the district.

The committee will be responsible for making reports to the community about bond expenditures. It is anticipated that the Committee will meet two to four times a year. Specific meeting dates will be determined by the committee.

The first committee meeting is expected to be held in spring 2019. For details and to apply, contact Robert Groeber, 730-7529; [email protected].
