DELHI UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

APPLICATION FOR CITIZENS’ OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

The Board of Education of the Delhi Unified School District is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders, which will serve as the independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (“C.O.C.”) for the implementation of the District’s Measure W school facilities bond program. 

Proposition 39 Bond Election       

On November 8, 2016, voters residing within the Delhi Unified School District passed Measure W.  Measure W is a $12 million bond measure that authorizes funding for a Career and Technical Education Building; Heat Ventilation Air Conditioning upgrades; and internet connectivity upgrades. Proposition 39 required a 55% supermajority for approval; Measure W was passed with the approval of 74.24% of the voters.

Establishment of a Citizens’ Oversight Committee

After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, state law requires that the Delhi Unified School District Board of Education appoint a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to work with the District.

    • Present to the Board of Education in public session, an annual written report outlining their activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Measure W bond proceeds.

The Bylaws that govern the Citizens’ Oversight Committee are attached to this Application.
