The Del Mar Union School District is seeking volunteers from the community to serve on its Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC). The COC provides oversight of the $186 million bond program, ensuring bond proceeds are used to support school modernization and construction projects as authorized by Measure MM, passed by local voters in November 2018.

The district seeks four representatives from the following groups:

• Parent of a DMUSD student

• Taxpayers’ organization

• Senior citizens’ organization

• At-large community member

Applications are currently available and are due April 2, 2021. In order to maintain objectivity as part of the committee’s responsibilities, district employees, contractors and vendors to the district are prohibited from serving as members of the committee.

More information concerning the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee, its membership, responsibilities, and application for appointment can be found on the district’s website at
