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/improvements. The FUSD Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC), which is comprised of volunteers, was first appointed by the District’s Board of Education, in accordance with the requirements of Proposition 39, and following the Board’s certification of the June 3, 2014, Measure E General Bond Election, on September 23, 2014. Last appointments to the CBOC were made on October 13, 2016. Appointments on the CBOC are for two and three years, so applications are accepted on a rolling 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," said 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," added Board Trustee, Ann Crosbie. "Participating on the CBOC is another opportunity for individuals within our District to help make our schools even better."
CBOC members will receive regular updates on Bond projects and report progress 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.
