RCSD Seeking Applicants to Serve on Measure W Citizen's Oversight Committee; Applications Due April 15, 2016

Redwood City School District Seeking Applicants to Serve on Measure W Citizen's Oversight Committee; Applications Due April 15, 2016

 On June 5, 2012, local voters approved Measure W, a $67 annual educational parcel tax to improve local elementary and middle school education for all students with funds that cannot be taken by the State. As stated in a resolution passed by the School Board on February 23, 2012, funds from Measure W will be used to enhance reading, writing, math, and science skills; attract and retain qualified teachers; and support school libraries. 

The resolution passed by the Board for Measure W requires reporting and oversight, including formation of a Citizen’s Oversight Committee.  The Committee was formed and was comprised of: 3 parents of students currently attending a Redwood City School District school, 3 community members who do not currently have children enrolled in the district, and 3 local business owners.  The first meeting of the newly-formed Citizens’ Oversight Committee was held on April 23, 2013, where 4 members drew two-year terms of office (term ends April, 2015) and 5 members drew three-year terms (term ends April, 2016).

The District is in the process of soliciting 5 new members to serve a 2-year term, which includes 1 community member who does not currently have children enrolled in the district, 2 local business owners and 2 parents of students currently attending a Redwood City School District school. The Committee meets 4 times per calendar year.  The responsibilities of the committee members are to:

  1. Ensure that all funds generated by Measure W are spent in accordance with the ballot language, and that no funds are spent on administrator salaries;
  2. Review Measure W expenditures by each school and determine if they comply with the Measure W ballot language, and the school’s stated intention, as approved by the School Board each year;
  3. Provide a report to the Board each year that states whether all expenditures are in accordance with the Measure W ballot language and in compliance with the Board-approved intention for use by each school.
