• Citizens' Measure D Bond Oversight Committee


    The Walnut Creek School District Board of Trustees established a Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee to review expenditures from construction activity associated with Measure D, which was approved by District voters on June 7, 2016.  On January 9, 2023, the WCSD Governing Board approved the amended bylaws which allow the current members of the committee to include Measure J, which was approved by District voters on November 8, 2022, in its scope of oversight.  The Committee is responsible for ensuring that bond revenues are used only as voters intended and for informing the public of bond expenditures.

    Who is on the Committee?
    The Bond Oversight Committee is made up of seven members.  In addition to two members of the community at large, there is one member from each of the following groups:

    •   One member who is active in a business organization representing the business community located within the school district.

    •   One member who is active in a senior citizen's organization.

    •   One member who is the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district.

    •   One member who is the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district and is active in a parent-teacher organization.

    •   One member who is active in a bona-fide taxpayer's organization.

    What does the Committee do?
    The committee is responsible for making reports to the Board of Trustees and the community about bond expenditures.

    How often does the Committee meet?
    The Committee is required to meet at least one time per year, or more frequently as it deems necessary to fulfill its duty.  It is estimated at this time that the Committee will meet approximately 2-3 times per year.  Specific meeting dates will be determined by the Committee.  

    How is the Committee be selected?
    The Board of Trustees selects the Committee, taking into account each applicant's professional and/or practical experience, their recognition in or contribution to his/her community, the diversity of experience on the Committee as a whole, and representation on the Committee from various communities within the district.  Committee members are appointed by the Board of Trustees to serve a two-year term.  A maximum of three consecutive, two-year terms is allowed under the law.

    All committee proceedings will be open to the public and will be subject to the Brown Act. All documents and reports received or published by the Committee will be a matter of public record, and will be made available on the District’s web site.

    The Board of Trustees will provide the Committee with administrative support and sufficient resources to publicize the committee reports.
