The Walnut Valley Unified School District Seeks Members for WV Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee
The Walnut Valley Unified School District (“WVUSD” or “District”) is looking for citizens to serve on the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (“CBOC” or “Committee”).
On November 8, 2016, voters residing within the WVUSD passed Measure WV. Measure WV is a $152,880,000 bond measure that authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects to the District’s schools. Proposition 39 required a 55% supermajority for approval; Measure WV was passed by 64.31%.
An active oversight committee is part of the accountability and auditing process to ensure that a check and balance system is effective. The Committee consists of a minimum of seven members appointed by the Board of Trustees from a list of candidates submitting written applications and based on criteria established by Prop 39. CBOC meets four to five times a year in the evenings. Terms are for two years with a maximum of three consecutive terms.
Currently the Committee has openings for those interested and meet the following criteria:
- One (1) member who is a parent/guardian of a child enrolled in the District
- One (1) member who is a parent/guardian of a child enrolled in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization or a school site council
- One (1) member who is active in a bona-fide taxpayers association
