The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC)
Measure GG was passed under the rules of Proposition 39, which directs that the Board of Trustees appoint an Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) to monitor bond expenditures. This Committee is responsible for providing oversight of the District’s use of Measure GG bond proceeds and reporting to the Board and public on their findings. Specifically, the ICOC will ensure that all funds are used in support of the projects included in the bond measure and not for unspecified projects, general operating expenses, or teacher salaries. The ICOC will also inspect facilities and grounds, review cost-saving measures, and review the annual independent audits that are required of general obligation bond funds.
