Measure A Oversight Committee

Background

On March 8, 2011 Alameda voters approved Measure A with 68.01% voting yes. Read full press release (PDF). This new parcel tax generates approximately $12 million per year for seven years. It has replaced the former Measure A (passed in 2005) and Measure H (passed in 2008).  To ensure public accountability and fiscal transparency, Measure A provides for an Oversight Committee to “review District compliance with the terms of this Measure.  The size, structure and scope of duties of the Oversight Committee shall be set by the Board.”

 

Accordingly, in June 2011, the Board approved Board Policy 3221 (Parcel Tax Funds) stating that the Oversight Committee “shall be formed to annually review the District’s compliance with the terms of the Measure. Appointments to the Oversight Committee shall be made annually by the Superintendent of Schools and approved by the Board of Education at a regularly scheduled meeting on or before September 30 each school year.  The Committee shall consist of eleven (11) members, all of whom must be residents of the City of Alameda. The Superintendent shall recommend a committee representing the diverse interests of parents/guardians, staff members, students, and community members from all attendance areas in the District.”

 

Applications for the committee are made available to the public in August. (Please see applications to the left on this page.) The Board of Education approves the appointment of the 11-member Measure A Oversight Committee each fall.  The Oversight Committee meets several times over the course of the year to review AUSD’s compliance with the terms of Measure A and issues an annual report in December or January.  All meetings of the Oversight Committee are open to the public and comply with open meeting laws (the Brown Act). Minutes, agendas and any other relevant communications and information are posted on this page at least 72 hours prior to each meeting.

 

You can find more information about this parcel tax on the Measure A web page.
