Citizens' Oversight Committee

  • At its meeting on June 27, 2017, the Ocean View School District Board of Trustees voted to approve the District’s 2017-2018 Measure R Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC). The COC, which will be comprised of not less than seven (7) members, will provide oversight of Measure R bond expenditures. Measure R was passed by voters in November 2016 and will provide $169M in general obligation bonds for the improvement of school facilities in the Ocean View School District.

    Current Measure R Independent COC members, according to category, are:

    • Business Representative(s) - Libbie Rector & Donna Alexander

    • Senior Citizen Group(s) - Ellen Riley & Gayle Wayne

    • Taxpayer Organization Member - Joshua Stone

    • Parent/Guardian of Child Enrolled in OVSD - Anna Marie Miars

    • Parent/Guardian of Child Enrolled in OVSD, Active in Parent Group - Jennifer Johnsen & Victoria Vu

    • At-Large Community Member(s) - Mark Bixby & Sean Stowell

    The COC's purpose is to review expenditure reports to ensure that Measure R bond proceeds are expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure R, and present to the Board in public session an annual written report about Measure R. After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, state law requires that the District’s Board of Trustees appoint an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee to work with the District. Information regarding COC Bylaws can be found on the OVSD website, COC Bylaws.

    Meetings scheduled for the 2019-2020 school year are from 5:15 p.m. - 7 p.m. on July 22, 2019, October 14, 2019, February 3, 2020, and May 11, 2020. Meetings are held in Building A at the District Office, located at 17200 Pinehurst Lane in Huntington Beach.
