27J Schools needs bond oversight committee members


27J Schools wants to put together a bond oversight committee to monitor expenses related to the latest bond package thatu voters passed in November.

The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, Jan. 19.

The committee's duties include:

  • Monitor the adherence of expenditures to the official bond language as approved by the voters of 27J Schools Nov. 2;

  • Monitor the status of all bond issue projects through information provided by district staff and provide feedback as appropriate;

  • Make quarterly reports to the board of education regarding the activities and expenditures of the 2021 bond program;

  • Make advisory recommendations to the board of education on other matters pertaining to the 2021 bond program, including:

  • The transfers of funds to projects or program reserve from interest earnings or project savings;

  • The proposed expenditures of any potential surplus bond funds; and

  • Assist in communicating to the general public the activities and expenditures related to the 2021 bond program through the use of regular meeting minutes and published reports to the board of education.

The school board will choose 11 members. Two will be from the board. Six of the remaining nine board members will come from the district's three planning areas (two representatives from each area). The life span of the committee is expected to be five years.

27J followed the same idea in 2015, the last time voters approved a bond package.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, Jan. 19. The form is at https://bit.ly/3qaugvh. The board will make its appointments during a Tuesday, Jan. 25, meeting.
