The Garden Grove Unified School District is seeking qualified volunteers to serve on the independent Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) for the implementation of Measure A, the $250 million school modernization bond measure approved by GGUSD voters in the June 2010.
The application is available online at www.ggusd.us or from the Public Information Office at (714) 663-6503. Completed applications must be received by the Public Information Office, Garden Grove Unified School District, 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove 92840, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 4:00 p.m. on February 21, 2014. All committee members must be GGUSD residents and be at least 18 years old.
The committee generally meets several times yearly, with all meetings open to the public. Membership is voluntary and without compensation. Employees, vendors, contractors, consultants, or GGUSD officials are ineligible for appointment to the committee. New committee members will be appointed to two-year terms, starting May 10, 2014, and ending May 9, 2016.
