CUSD Seeks Applicants for Measure D Citizens Oversight Committee
 
The Central Unified School District (CUSD) is seeking a qualified volunteer to serve on the Measure D Citizens Oversight Committee that would satisfy the following category: "Bona-fide Taxpayer Association Representative".  Measure D, which was passed by voters in November 2020, is a $120 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 D bond funds.

Membership is voluntary, without compensation, and members must be 18 years of age; employees, vendors, contractors, consultants, or CUSD officials are not eligible for appointment to the Committee.

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

Applications can be obtained at the CUSD Annex Office located at 4605 N Polk Avenue, Fresno, CA. 93722, or by clicking the Bond Oversight Committee Application Form below.

Thank you to the voters in the Central Unified School District for passing Measure D!!
 
Measure D 2020 is a general obligation (GO) bond measure that was placed on the November 3, 2020, presidential election ballot. 60.12% of district voters approved of Measure D which will authorize $120 million in bonds to complete the new high school, expand educational and extracurricular opportunities for students, construct a new elementary school to reduce classroom overcrowding, upgrade and renovate older school facilities, improve safety and security, and increase student access to up-to-date technology. In addition, Measure D will qualify the District for state matching funds.
 
Passage of Measure D 2020 will authorize the bonds to build a much-needed elementary school, renovate and repair many of our aging classrooms and school facilities, improve safety and security on campuses, and complete Justin Garza High School, including this visual and performing arts center, a crown jewel of the Central Valley. It will provide a place to enjoy symphonies, dance concerts, plays, festivals, and so much more for residents within the Central Unified neighborhood and community. It's a center not only for our youth, but for adults of all ages.

Watch this fly-through of this beautiful center.
