Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

In November 2000, California voters passed Proposition 39, which allows property tax increases to pay for school facility bonds by a 55 percent vote rather than the required two-thirds vote of the local electorate. Proposition 39 requires school districts that pass school bonds to seat a Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) to assure the community that bond funds are expended in the fashion outlined in the district's bond resolution. The CBOC must meet at least once a year and inform the public about the expenditure of bond revenues. The CBOC shall actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayers' money for school construction.
