Bond Oversight Committee seeking new members

San Juan Unified’s citizens Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) is seeking new members to join its panel, which is charged with overseeing district construction expenditures.

The BOC is a committee comprised of nine community members including seats specifically for a business representative, senior citizen representative, parent representative, PTA/PTO representative and taxpayer association representative to ensure a wide range of stakeholder participation.

Recently, vacancies have arisen for the senior citizen representatives, PTA/PTO representative, and taxpayer association representative. There are also opportunities for at-large seats on the committee. Applicants must reside within the boundaries of the San Juan Unified School District.

Duties of the BOC are to receive and analyze staff reports on bond spending related to new construction, school repair, upgrade and modernization projects. San Juan Unified’s bond funding is separate from the general fund, and has been approved by voters with the caveat that a BOC is in place to ensure each dollar is spent as promised within ballot language put before the public and meets all other laws and regulations placed on bond expenditures.

San Juan Unified received voter approval for the $750 million Measure P in the November 2016 election and has run a very aggressive construction schedule in recent years.
