What Does a Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee Do?

The committee is the eyes and ears of the community to hold the school district accountable for the spending of bond funds authorized by the voters. It is an independent committee that sets its own agenda within the rules and regulations provided in its by-laws.

It reviews reports and information provided by the district. For the committee to be most effective, it must ask questions and receive complete and transparent responses from the school district. The committee reports to the public its findings including both positive observations about the efficiency and effectiveness of the district as well as areas for improvement.
