The Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) is seeking 10 qualified volunteers to serve on the independent Measure E Citizens Oversight Committee. Measure E, which was passed by voters in June 2016, is a $319 million school facilities improvement measure.
California state law requires that a Citizens Oversight Committee be appointed by the Board of Education to monitor bond expenditures and ensure bond revenues are allocated in compliance with the voter approved measure. The committee provides transparency and maintains public confidence in the use of Measure E bond funds.
Applicants must commit to a two-year term of service and reside or own property within the School Facilities Improvement District (SFID) boundaries. Click here to view the SFID boundary map.

The Committee will meet quarterly, with all meetings conducted in the evenings, after work hours, and open to the public. Dates and times to be determined.
