If you are interested or know someone who is, please attend our next CBOC meeting on Tuesday, April 4th, starting at 5:30 at the District Service Center at 511 S. Orchard Avenue.
CBOC membership is not a big commitment and does not take much time. The committee holds two meetings per year, typically in April and October, each lasting around 90 minutes, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. It's important to note that the CBOC is an advisory body and doesn't make decisions; rather, it evaluates projects and expenditures. The CBOC makes sure Ukiah Unified is spending money as specified in the voter-approved bond language and reports to the Board and the public if they have any issues or concerns. The District provides an information package ahead of each meeting that is reviewed during the meeting.
In 2020, local voters approved Measure A, giving Ukiah Unified School District up to $75 million in bonds to renovate our facilities. As a part of this, Ukiah Unified is legally required to have an oversight committee consisting of at least seven volunteer members who serve a term of two years each. The committee's composition must include representatives from the business community, a senior citizens’ organization, a taxpayer organization, and parents with children in Ukiah Unified.
CBOC membership is a great way to support some of the critical work of Ukiah Unified. For more information, contact Debbie Ornelas, Office of the Superintendent and Board of Trustees, at 707.472.5002 or [email protected].
