Citizens' Oversight Committee

The Measure S Citizens' Oversight Committee (COC) was established to inform the public about the expenditure of Measure S bond revenues in an oversight capacity, not in a decision making capacity. The all-volunteer committee monitors that revenues from the bond are spent only as described in Bond Measure S and reports to the board and the public. The school board is required to provide responses to any and all findings or concerns noted by the committee and post the committee’s minutes, proceedings, documents received, and reports issued.  See the bottom of this page for the archive of those documents.

Under Proposition 39, the committee includes a member active in the business community, a member active in a senior citizen’s organization, a member active in a taxpayer’s organization, a parent/guardian of a child attending a Hermosa Beach public school, a student’s parent/guardian who is involved in a parent-teacher organization, and pair of members from the community at large. Employees, officials, vendors, contractors, or consultants of the school district are not eligible to sit on the committee.  The final composition of the COC was selected and approved by the school board from a pool of qualified members of the community who responded to an open-to-the-public call-for-applicants.

The Hermosa Beach City School District is greatly appreciative for the donation of time made by the members of the COC on behalf of the community of Hermosa Beach.
