Sulphur Springs seeks members for bond measure oversight committee

With plans to modernize Canyon Country elementary schools districtwide, Sulphur Springs School District officials are seeking members for a public oversight committee to guide spending on the projects.

The requirements for the oversight committee are set, and the district is looking for members, officials said Tuesday.
Voters OK’d the $72 million Measure CK bond measure in June.

Upgrading Valley View, which has special resources for severely disabled and medically fragile students, is probably the priciest project in the plan and also near the top of the to-do list, according to Lynn David, assistant superintendent of business services.

“That is a high, high priority,” David said, referring to the 40-year-old Valley View site. Pinetree is also in need of upgrades, she said, and there are districtwide modernization goals, also.

“We plan to upgrade technology in classrooms districtwide, update and expand school libraries and repair and replace aging roofs, ventilation systems and playground areas districtwide,” David said.

The district approved the prerequisites for membership in the oversight committee at its Aug. 22 board meeting. It will start to accept applications on Sept. 4.

Proposition 39 mandates such oversight committees and requires five members, as well as two additional at-large members who are community residents, David said.

The requirements are these: one person must be a parent or guardian of a child in the district; another member must be a parent or guardian who’s also active in the PTA or another school organization; one member must be a person who’s active in the business community through representation in a local business organization; one member must be an active member of a senior citizens organization; and the fifth member must be active in a bona fide taxpayer organization such as the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Organization.

Beginning Sept. 4, applications will be available at local school offices, the Sulphur Springs School District office, 27000 Weyerhauser Way in Newhall, and online at the district’s website, www.sssd.k12.ca.us.
