GGUSD Invites Applicants for Bond Oversight Committee

Bond Oversight Committee members pose with, then Assistant Director of Facilities, Jerry Hills during a visit to La Quinta High School in 2017.

The Garden Grove Unified School District is seeking qualified volunteers to serve on the independent Bond Oversight Committee (BOC), tasked with overseeing lawful and appropriate expenditures of the district’s bond funds.  The Committee meets several times each year to provide public scrutiny and accountability for use of funds from Measure A, the $250 million bond measure approved in 2010 and Measure P, the $311 million bond measure approved in November 2016.

The application is available online at or from the Public Information Office at (714) 663-6503. Completed applications must be received by the Public Information Office, Garden Grove Unified School District, 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove 92840, or emailed to no later than 4:00 p.m. on March 22, 2019. All committee members must be GGUSD residents and be at least 18 years old.

The committee generally meets several times yearly, with all meetings open to the public. Membership is voluntary and without compensation. Employees, vendors, contractors, consultants, or GGUSD officials are ineligible for appointment to the committee. New committee members will be appointed to two-year terms, starting May 14, 2019, and ending May 13, 2021.

The committee provides transparency and maintains public confidence in the use of Measure A and Measure P bond proceeds. California state law requires that a BOC be appointed by the Board of Education to monitor bond expenditures and ensure no bond revenues are appropriated for teacher or administrator salaries, or general district operating expenses.
