District Advisory Committee

History

 

The District Advisory Committee (DAC) was formed in the fall of 1996 with the intention of representing all elements of the school community in the decision-making process. The goal was to eliminate duplication of efforts, increase community and staff buy-in, and do research to advise the board on a variety of issues. The District Advisory Committee replaced various committees, including the Calendar Committee, the Facilities Committee, the Restructuring Committee, and the Executive Budget Committee.

 

Purpose

The District recognizes that shared decision making, in which employees at individual schools and members of the community are given increased responsibility for making decisions, may improve effective professional practice and the education process, may improve the school's productivity, and may ensure that learning and teaching are enhanced. The process includes involvement of all segments of the school and community and is based on mutual trust, shared responsibility, and accountability. 

The District Advisory Committee is comprised of the following:

  • Three certificated members of the Long Valley Teachers Association (LVTA)

  • Three classified members of the California School Employee Association (CSEA)

  • The Superintendent

  • Two site Principals

  • Two school board members

  • One non-school member from each of the site councils

  • One representative from the American Indian community

  • One high school student representative

 

Responsibilities
  1. Serve as an Advisory group to the Board

  2. Advise the Board as to how the district budget shall be allocated

  3. Serve as a forum for improved communication throughout the district

  4. Serve as a forum for ongoing restructuring discussions

  5. Serve as an Advisory Committee for planning/problem solving

  6. Serve as a committee for facility planning

  7. Create school calendar options with input from stakeholders

  8. Review School Site Council projects and activtiies on a yearly basis as submitted by the Site Councils

  9. Support collaboration among school site administrators, staff, and parents in the allocation of resources at the school sites

Measure Q

 

On November 14, 2014 The Laytonville Unified School District held a bond election in which it was successful at obtaining authorization from the District’s voters to issue up to $5.5 million dollars towards the construction and modernization of a new elementary school. 

The Election was conducted under Proposition 39, being chaptered as the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act of 2000, at Section 15264 et seq. of the Education Code of the State (“Prop 39”).  Pursuant to Section 15278 of the Education Code, the District is obligated to establish an Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee in order to satisfy the accountability requirements of Prop 39. 

If you would like to view the Facilities Master Plan Report conducted by Don Alameida, District Architect, please click here. This document outlines the current facilities and the needed improvements. Additional documents regarding Measure Q, the election and the proposed projects are listed below:

Any questions or concerns regarding this project or the bond proceeds should be addressed to the Superintendent, Joan Potter at (707) 984-6414. Written correspondence can be sent to P.O. Box 868, Laytonville, CA 95454, Attention: Joan Potter.

 
ICBOC
Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee

 

In order to fulfill the requirements of Prop 39, the District had to establish an Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee to inform the public, review the expenditures, and prepare an annual report of the facilities construction and modernization project. A detailed description of their duties can be found in the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee Bylaws.

 

Please note that while the committee is established to inform the public and review expenditures, they are not responsible for addressing any questions or concerns. All questions or concerns should be directed to the Superintendent, Joan Potter, at (707) 984-6414.

 

The Bond Oversight Committee meets at least once per year. The meeting Agendas and Minutes for these meetings can be found below . Additional documents associated with the Independent Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee can be found below.
