DISTRICT SEEKING QUALIFIED VOLUNTEERS TO SERVE ON CBAC
From the start of the journey that culminated with the passage of a $218 million bond that will see a total of five new schools built, stakeholder engagement and involvement has been a crucial part of the process.
As part of the District's pledge to be transparent with respect to the bond issue, a Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee was formed as an advisory entity to the D60 Board of Education. It’s the committee’s duty to ensure that the taxpayer-approved bond funds are spent in the manner for which they were designated.
The District is seeking volunteers willing to commit to a two-year term on the committee.
The CBAC is comprised of 5 to 7 volunteers representative of the District 60 community. We are seeking committee members who reflect the diversity of the community and who have a reputation for fairness and transparency.
Those who serve should represent each of the District’s 4 quadrants and various school levels, and possess a combination of experience in building design, construction, capital program management, construction financing, contracting, educational or instructional program delivery at various grade levels, district or school accountability processes and/or facility operations.
The specific responsibilities of committee members include actively monitoring the status of bond program projects through information provided by District staff and provide feedback as appropriate, along with visits to construction sites.
The committee -- overseen by a Chair and Vice-chair -- meets monthly, and in no event less than quarterly. A quorum of at least 4 members, including the Chair, Vice Chair or their designee, is required to conduct a meeting. A majority of the quorum shall constitute action by the CBAC.
Members may attend via conference call if approved by the Chair.
Meeting minutes will be taken and published on the 2019 Bond Program website within 10 working days of approval. To the extent possible, all handouts at each meeting also will be made available through the website.
The District’s Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director of Facilities and Construction Management will attend CBAC meetings and provide appropriate levels of support and guidance to the committee. Staff will also help co-facilitate the meetings.
Quarterly and annual reports, the product of a committee consensus, are provided to the D60 board. These reports will include progress of projects, the expenditures of bond funds in relation to the ballot language approved by voters in 2019.
Employees of the district, or any vendor, contractor or consultant working on a bond project, are not eligible to apply.
