Members of the ICOC will provide oversight of the District’s use of Proposition AA bond proceeds and report to the Board and public on their findings. Specifically, the ICOC will ensure that all funds are used in support of the projects included in the bond measure and not for unspecified projects, general operating expenses, or teacher salaries. The ICOC will also inspect facilities and grounds, review cost-saving measures, and review the annual independent audits that are required of general obligation bond funds.
The committee must have no fewer than seven members, at least comprised of individuals from the following categories:
- One member who is active in a business organization representing the business community located within the district
- One member who is active in a senior citizens organization - One member who is in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization - One member who is a parent of a district student and is active in a parent-teacher ogranization - One member who is a parent/guardian of a district student
The ICOC will meet quarterly. Members serve two-year terms without compensation.
