TUSD Seeks Applicants for Measure G Citizens' Oversight Committee


The Tustin Unified School District is seeking applicants for its Measure G Citizensí Oversight Committee. Measure G is Tustin Unifiedís $80 million bond measure, which was passed by voters in November 2002, to repair and renovate the 20 oldest schools in the District.

The TUSD Board of Education established a committee to inform the public regarding the expenditure of Measure Gís proceeds for school construction. The committee consists of at least seven members, including a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the District; a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization such as a PTA, PTO or school-site council; an individual who is active on a business organization within the District; a person who is active in a senior citizensí organization; and an individual who is active in a bonafide taxpayers association.

The oversight committee meets bi-monthly to review expenditure reports and current projects relating to Measure G funds. Members serve two-year terms with a maximum of two terms.

Individuals interested in serving on the TUSD Measure G Citizensí Oversight Committee may call (714) 730-7301, ext. 302 or visit the Measure G Web site at www.TUSDMeasureG.org to obtain an application. All applications must be returned to the Business Services Department at the District Administration Center, 300 South C St., by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 24.
