There are currently four (4) vacancies on the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Bond Oversight Committee established in order to satisfy the accountability requirements of Prop 39 and Education Code section 15278.

 One active member in PTA or site council who is a parent / guardian of a student
attending a SMMUSD school

“This is a great opportunity for parents and community members to get involved with
accountability of our two bond measures,” said Melody Canady, assistant superintendent of fiscal services.

Applications can be mailed to the district office (1651 16th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404), faxed (310.581.1138), or scanned and emailed to boc@smmusd.org. Applications will be reviewed beginning March 1, 2018 and will continue until all vacancies are filled.

Santa Monica and Malibu voters overwhelmingly passed Measure BB in 2006 for $268 million and Measure ES in 2012 for $385 million. SMMUSD appreciates the ongoing support for campus improvements.
