The Community Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) held its first meeting on Tuesday evening, Nov. 5, 2018. The membership of the Committee was approved by the School Board at its Oct. 9, 2018 meeting, and consists of 12 volunteers from the community.
The major responsibilities of CBOC include:
- 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.
At the meeting, CBOC members heard an overview of the 2018 bond program, including categories of work, delivery schedule, financial plan, approximate property tax levy rates and debt repayment schedule. Members shared how the district’s equity focus was incorporated in the creation of the bond package through the work of the Community Facilities Task Force (CFTF), and that the decision to invest in expanding all high schools rather than build one new high school was one outcome of the CFTF’s equity conversations.
