Rowland seeks members for bond oversight committee

Rowland Unified School District is looking for residents to serve on the oversight committee for the Measure R Bond.

The Board of Education appoints seven members of the community to the committee. The committee is responsible for overseeing the expenditure of funds raised by the $118 million Measure R Bond that was approved by voters for the continued modernization of classrooms and schools in the district.
The committee reviews expenditures of bond proceeds, including district personnel construction management costs. They also make sure that no bond proceeds are used for any teacher or administrative salaries or other operating expenses.
The panel will serve for one or two-year terms and by law, members must be representative of the community in specific areas: (business community, senior citizen’s organization, parent/guardian of child enrolled in the District, taxpayers association, parent/guardian of a child in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization, and two community members appointed by Board). The committee meets quarterly.
The application deadline is Aug.12. Download an application at the <a href=”″>Rowland Unified Web site. </a>
