Community Bond Oversight Committee
What is CBOC?
IN May of 2018, voters in Salem and Keizer approved a $619.7 million general obligation bond for school expansions and renovations.
Bond funds will be used to add space to relieve overcrowding and prepare for future enrollment growth, add career and technical education and science classrooms, improve safety and security, enhance seismic safety, upgrade access to technology and implement Americans with Disabilities Act improvements. Every school is planned to receive some kind of improvement in the 2018 Bond Program.
The Community Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) was formed to monitor progress of the bond program and provide regular reports to the school board. The public is welcome to attend and observe CBOC meetings. CBOC consists of 12 volunteers. Meetings will be held quarterly, or more frequently as requested by the school board or superintendent.
Major Responsibilities of the Committee
- Monitor progress of the 2018 Bond Program, including construction projects and budget.
- Report at least annually to the school board on the progress of the 2018 Bond Program.
- Provide recommendations for the use of bond funds in accordance with state law and the language in the voter-approved ballot title.
