There is an immediate need for four members; one individual representing a bona-fide taxpayer’s association, one member who is a parent of a child enrolled in the district, one member who is a parent of a child enrolled in the district and is an active member in a parent-teacher organization or school site council, and one community member at large. All interested community members are encouraged to apply as they will be considered for future openings on the committee.
The application and committee bylaws are available online at www.ggusd.us or from the Public Information Office at (714) 663-6503. Completed applications must be received by the Public Information Office, Garden Grove Unified School District, 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove 92840, or emailed to email@example.com no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 10. All committee members must be GGUSD residents and be at least 18 years old.
The committee meets three times each year with an additional two site visits per year. Both bond measures will be reviewed concurrently during the set meetings. All meetings will be open to the public. Membership is voluntary and without compensation. Employees, vendors, contractors, consultants, or GGUSD officials are ineligible for appointment to the committee. New committee members will be appointed to two-year terms, starting May 9, 2017, and ending May 8, 2019.
The committee will provide transparency and maintain public confidence in the use of Measure A and Measure P bond proceeds. California state law requires that a BOC be appointed by the Board of Education to monitor bond expenditures and ensure no bond revenues are appropriated for teacher or administrator salaries, or general district operating expenses.
