Calling all residents interested in Prop. P committee

CARLSBAD — Carlsbad Unified School District has released the application packet for membership on its Proposition P Oversight Committee, or PPOC. One replacement member of the committee will be appointed by the board of trustees for a two-year term.
Proposition P, which authorized issuance of $198 million in general obligation bonds, allows the district to plan and build a number of significant school projects, none of which would have been possible without the bond funds. The anticipated projects include: (1) complete renovation of Carlsbad High School, including replacement of many of the outdated buildings on that campus; (2) design and construction of another high school on property that the district owns northeast of the intersection of Cannon Road and College Boulevard; (3) renovation of Valley Middle School and Magnolia, Kelly, Buena Vista, and Hope elementary schools; and (4) replacement of a number of relocatable classrooms at Aviara Oaks Middle School.
The Proposition P Oversight Committee reviews the planned projects and examines costs in order to advise the community whether the district completes the projects in accordance with provisions of the Proposition P bond measure. The committee will make periodic reports to the community.
Citizens who may have interest in applying to serve on the committee can obtain an application packet from the district’s Internet Web site at Applications must be received at the district office no later than 4:30 p.m. Dec. 5.
