Mission Statement
The mission of the CBOC is to independently review the planning and execution of the Proposition U and Measure BB (Measure U/BB) bond programs to validate to the public and the Governing Board that bond funds are spent within the intent of the bond measure.

Proposition U is the $417 million General Obligation Bond measure passed in November 2008. Combined with an additional $50 million in State Matching Funds, it continues the modernization of all District schools, will provide classrooms and equipment for Career Technical Education, and construct a new high school in the Alpine/Blossom Valley area.

Measure BB is the $128 million General Obligation Bond measure passed in November 2016.  It will continue to modernize and replace facilities to meet student needs, including renovating career-training facilities for instruction in science, technology, engineering, math and skilled trades.

The Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) is the oversight group created to monitor Proposition U and Measure BB (hereafter Measure U/BB) implementation and expenditures. The CBOC is comprised of 11 volunteers appointed by the Governing Board. CBOC members walk school campuses, review project planning documents, monitor community meetings and examine audit reports to verify that the school district is using bond dollars effectively, responsibly and in compliance with Measure U/BB ballot language.  Members of the CBOC are required to complete the FPPC Statement of Economic Interests annually, and a copy is maintained on file at the GUHSD District Office.

CBOC meetings are open to the public and held quarterly at the Grossmont Union High School District Main Conference Room.  Each year, the CBOC issues an independent annual report to inform the public about the status of Measure U/BB and the oversight role of the CBOC.  In their reports published July 2014 and 2016, the San Diego Taxpayers Educational Foundation gave the District high marks for its bond program information transparency.
