Discussion

The Charter of the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) was approved by the School Board on October 14, 2014. 

The Charter was reviewed by the ICOC at their October 21, 2020 meeting relative to any changes necessary to frame the ICOC's role in the sales surtax renewal program. Proposed modifications include:

  • reference to the November 3, 2020 referendum and extension of the program for another six years for a total of twelve years
  • updating reporting requirements
  • removing outdated language regarding membership
  • noting that the ICOC will meet at least four times each year. The original Charter required the ICOC to meet four times per year, but the ICOC has chosen to meet every other month since its inception. Occasionally a meeting is canceled if there is no business or special meetings are scheduled if there is business that needs a more timely response.

The ICOC approved recommending these changes to the School Board.
