Seeking Applicants for Measure “B” Citizens' Oversight Committee

The Buena Park School District (BPSD) proudly serves the communities of Buena Park, La Palma, Fullerton, Anaheim and unincorporated areas of North Orange County to provide educational programs to 4,700 kindergarten through eighth grade students at our seven schools.  On June 3, 2014, our community supported Measure “B” and the issuance of $71 million in general obligation bonds to repair and upgrade our classrooms and schools. 

 

Over the past three years, we have modernized five schools (Buena Park Junior High, Emery, Gilbert, Pendleton & Whitaker Elementary schools), completed seismic upgrades at two other schools, installed campus wide Wi-Fi districtwide, converted all playground surfaces to rubberized surfaces, and issued iPads for all students Grades 4-8.  Projects planned in 2018 include the modernization of our two remaining schools.

 

The District is currently seeking applicants for an independent citizens’ oversight committee to oversee bond proceeds & expenditures, review audit reports, and ensure spending consistent with Measure “B” guidelines.  Committee members cannot be an employee or official of the school district or a current vendor.  It would be helpful if interested candidates has one or more of the following attributes:

 

  • A member of a taxpayers’, business, or senior citizens' organization
  • A parent or guardian of a current BPSD student
  • A member of our PTA, school site council, or other school organization
  • Has architectural, construction, or finance background
  • Resides within our school district boundaries.
