Staff Report

The Santa Ynez Valley Union High School District is seeking a volunteer to fill an “at-large community member” position on its Measure K Citizens’ Oversight Committee. 

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and live in the district’s attendance area.

The district’s voters approved Measure K, a school bond for facilities improvements on Nov. 8, 2016. The election was conducted under Proposition 39, so the district was required to establish a citizens’ oversight committee to satisfy Prop. 39 accountability requirements.

The committee has three oversight responsibilities: inform the public concerning the district’s expenditures of bond proceeds, review expenditures to ensure that bond proceeds are expended only for the purposes set forth in the ballot measure, and confirm that no bond proceeds are used for any teacher or administrative salaries or other operating expenses.

There are no more than four meetings a year. The committee presents annually to the Board of Education, in public session, a written report documenting district compliance with the requirements.
