In November 2008, the Gateway Unified School District (GUSD) voters passed a $19 million general obligation bond (Measure G) with 57.7% of voters approving the measure.
The purpose of the bond proceeds was to "improve the quality of education, renovate and contract classrooms and school facilities including libraries and cafeterias; upgrade outdated heating, ventilation and air condition systems; make health and safety improvements; improve student access to computers and modern technology; and improve handicapped accessibility.
Because Measure G was approved through an election process under Proposition 39, the District is obligated to established a Citizen's Oversight Committee (COC). The committee must be comprised of voters who represent parents, parent-teacher organizations, the business community, senior citizens, taxpayers associations, and the community at large. This committee reviews expenditure reports to ensure that: a) bond proceeds are expended only for the purpose set forth in the ballot measure, and b) no bond proceeds are used for any teacher, administrator salaries or any other operating expenses.
VACANT POSITIONS: The District has Committee Member openings to fill the vacancies as required for the:
