Board of Education Opens Application Process for Vacated Position on the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee

At the January 17, 2017 Board of Education meeting, the Board will be appointing one new member for the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (ICOC). The Board is currently looking for individuals who meet the qualification for the following position:

As part of the Bond Measures (per Proposition 39), the Board established the creation of the ICOC to ensure bond dollars were spent only on projects specified in the bond projects lists, and not for general operating expenses or teacher salaries. Members of the committee receive and review copies of the annual financial and performance audits with respect to the bond projects as required by state law. Members of the ICOC meet quarterly and can serve up to three, two-year terms (without compensation).

The application deadline is Friday, January 6, 2017 at 5:00 pm. Applications can be dropped off at 2335 Plaza del Amo, Torrance, CA  90509, the Office of the Deputy Superintendent, or can be mailed to the same address.
