Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) Measure C


The Mt. Diablo Unified School District’s (MDUSD) Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) is an advisory body to the District on matters related to the Measure C construction bond program implementation as required by California’s Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bond Act of 2000, which mandates that citizen advisory panels be established to assure accountability for the use of public funds.


The Committee’s three key roles and responsibilities are to:

  • Inform the public on the District’s expenditures of bond proceeds.
  • Review expenditures to assure that proceeds are being spent for projects approved and outlined within the proposition(s).
  • Produce and present an annual report to summarize the Committee’s proceedings and activities within the prior year.


Members are appointed to the CBOC by the Board of Education for the District, and must fulfill designations specified by Proposition 39:

  • One member shall be active in a business organization representing the business community located within the school district.
  • One member shall be active in a senior citizens’ organization.
  • One member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization.
  • One member shall be the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district.
  • One member shall be a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district and active in a parent-teacher organization, such as the Parent Teacher Association/Organization or school site council.


Membership involves the following:

  • A three-year term. Members in good standing are eligible for a second or third three-year term.
  • Attendance at four meetings per year.
  • Compliance with the CBOC bylaws, including adherence to a code of ethics and procedures for disclosing conflicts of interest.
