TUSD Independent Citizens' Oversight Committee
Board of Education Opens Application Process for Vacated Positions
Torrance, CA - At the April 18, 2022 Board of Education meeting, the Board will be appointing two new members to the Independent Citizens' Oversight Committee (ICOC). The Board is currently looking for individuals who meet the qualifications for the following positions:
- Tax-Payers’ Organization
- Representative At-Large
As part of the Bond Measures (per Proposition 39), the Board established the creation of the ICOC to ensure bond dollars were spent only on projects specified in the bond projects lists, and not for general operating expenses or teacher salaries. Members of the committee receive and review copies of the annual financial and performance audits with respect to the bond projects as required by state law. Members of the ICOC meet quarterly and can serve up to three, two-year terms (without compensation).
The application deadline is Thursday, March 31, 2022 at 5:00 pm. Applications can be dropped off at 2335 Plaza del Amo, Torrance, CA 90501, the Administrative Services Office, or can be mailed to the same address.
