Measure M Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

About Measure M

The Moreno Valley School Board voted June 17, 2014, to place a $398 million bond measure on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot.  The community approved Measure M for $398 million to repair existing facilities, as well as construct new facilities for the students of Moreno Valley Unified School District.

Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

Moreno Valley's Board of Education approved the appointment of the Citizen's Bond (Measure M) Oversight Committee  (CBOC) at its April 14, 2015, School Board Meeting.

When terms expire, or when members opt out of service, applications are sought and replacement recommendations are presented to the School Board for appointment.

The purpose of the Measure M Citizen's Oversight Committee is to actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayers' money for school construction on the Measure M Bond projects.

The CBOC started meeting on August 20, 2015, and have continued since then.
