Measure E Citizens' Oversight Committee

Measure E Oversight Committee

On February 5, 2008, the registered voters of the Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District passed Measure E, $67.3 million in General Obligation Bonds, to improve the quality of our local elementary and middle schools, modernize classroom technology, construct new science and computer labs, improve school security, build new schools and classrooms and become eligible for millions in additional state school construction grants. 

 

With the passage of Measure E, the Dry Creek Joint Elementary School Board of Trustees is required by law to establish and appoint an independent citizens’ oversight committee whose purpose is to inform the public concerning the expenditure of bond revenues.  The Committee is made up of members of the community, none of which is an employee or official of the District or a vendor, contractor or consultant of the District.  The Committee members are to serve for a term of two (2) years without compensation and for no more than three (3) consecutive terms. 

 

The Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District Measure E Citizens’ Oversight Committee meets the member requirements of:

  • One member shall be active in a business organization representing the business community located within the District
  • One member shall be active in a senior citizen’s organization
  • One member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization
  • One member shall be the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the District
  • One member shall be both a parent (or guardian) of a child enrolled in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization, PTA or school site council.

 

The role of the Committee is to analyze and review all project plans for and all expenditures of the $67.3 million in General Obligation Bonds to ensure that they reflect the project list as stated in the ballot pamphlet.  The Committee Charge is accessible through the link on the right of this web page as are the members’ names and project list. There are also links to view the Committee’s meeting dates, agendas and meeting minutes. The Committee will meet at least annually and will report directly to the Board of Trustees at least annually.
