With the passage of Measure E in June 2014, the Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) invited individuals in the community to serve as volunteers on an oversight committee to monitor the use of funds allocated to the District for facility repairs and improvements. Members of the FUSD Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) are appointed by the District’s Board of Education, in accordance with the requirements of Proposition 39. Appointments to the CBOC are for two- or three-year terms and applications are accepted for vacant positions on an ongoing basis.
The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee has and will continue to play a vital role in overseeing the wide range of facility-improvement and new construction projects Fremont Unified will complete over the coming years thanks to the support of our community. — FUSD Board Trustee Dr. Yang Shao
There are many members of our community who invested a great deal of time and effort to the Bond campaign. Participating on the CBOC is another opportunity for individuals within our District to help make our schools even better. — Board Trustee, Ann Crosbie
CBOC members will receive regular updates on Bond projecs and expenditures and present an annual report on the results of the Committee’s activities to the FUSD Board of Education.
Per the requirements of Proposition 39, a bond oversight committee is required to include participants from specific segments of the community. The committee is required to have a minimum of seven members (plus five alternates) and include at least one from each of the following five categories:
- Active in a business organization representing the business community located within FUSD.
- Active in a senior citizens’ organization.
- A parent or guardian of a child enrolled at FUSD.
- Active in a parent-teacher organization and parent or guardian of a child enrolled at FUSD.
- Active in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization.
