With the terms ending for six sitting members, and the resignation of one additional member, the Saugus Union School District is looking for seven new community members who wish to have a seat on the Measure EE Citizens’ Oversight Committee.
In November 2015, the voters who live within the boundaries of the SUSD voted to approve Measure EE, a public education school facilities bond that was proposed to modernize, add necessary technology upgrades, renovate and revitalize SUSD schools, according to district officials in a press release sent out Monday.
“The district is required to form a Citizens’ Oversight Committee, comprised of specified members of the community to assist the district in reviewing the expenditures of bond funds as they occur,” the release said.
District officials say the committee is expected to meet quarterly, and membership comes without compensation, but gives residents an opportunity to learn more about the district and support its mission of public education. Employees of the district, district vendors, consultants and contractors who work for, or provide services to, the district may not serve on the committee, according to officials.
The selection process for committee applicants will include a review of the applications and a possible interview by a subcommittee of the board. Appointment of the members of the committee will be by the governing board and is scheduled for the May 21 governing board meeting.
Application forms can be hand delivered or addressed to: Saugus Union School District, Nick Heinlein, SUSD assistant superintendent of business, at 24930 Avenue Stanford. Application forms can also be returned via email to [email protected]
Application forms must be received by 4 p.m. on May 10.
