Citizens’ Oversight Committee

This Board appointed committee was established to inform the public concerning the expenditure of the Measure G Bond proceeds.

MORGAN HILL UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
APPLICATION FOR CITIZENS’ OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

The Board of Education of the Morgan Hill Unified School District is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders which will serve as the independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (“COC”) for the implementation of the District’s Measure G school facilities bond program.  We currently have openings for the following positions:

  • Parent of a student currently enrolled at MHUSD

Proposition 39 Bond Election

On November 6, 2012, voters residing within the Morgan Hill Unified School District passed Measure G. Measure G is a $198.25 million bond measure that authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects to the District’s schools. Proposition 39 required a 55% supermajority for approval; Measure G was passed by 64.89%.

Establishment of a Citizens’ Oversight Committee

After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, state law requires that the Morgan Hill Unified School District Board of Education appoint a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to work with the District.
