The Committee is designed to include individuals with business experience, senior citizens, and members of the community. Members must be residents in the Rowland Unified School District. District officials, employees, vendors and contractors are prohibited from serving on the committee.
The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee serves in an advisory role and does not have decision-making authority, but will review quarterly expenditure reports produced by the District to ensure that bond proceeds are expanded only for the purpose set forth in the ballot measure. The Committee will also review the audits and reports of expenditures of bond proceeds and will inform public concerning the same.
