Citizen's Oversight Committee
The first meeting of the Greeley-Evans School District 6 Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee was held virtually on April 23, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The committee was appointed in March after an application process. Committee members were selected by members of the Superintendent’s Leadership Advisory Board, composed of members of the Greeley and Evans business community. Sixteen members were selected, including residents of Greeley and Evans, parents of current District 6 students, District 6 staff members, charter school representatives, members of the business community, people who served on the District 6 Facility Master Planning Committee and retirees.
The purpose of the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee is to provide an independent review of Bond Program projects, to monitor and review all projects, to provide a high level of accountability and communication to the citizens of Greeley and Evans about the projects and budgets, and to make recommendations on adjustments that may be needed as the program progresses.
At its first meeting Thursday, members of the committee reviewed all the current bond projects, including the construction of a new Greeley West High School, the new addition and renovation of S. Crista McAuliffe STEM Academy K-8, safe and secure entrances and other upgrades at Jackson and Billie Martinez elementary school, construction of a new K-8 school and other projects that will come online later this year. Members were able to ask questions and give feedback during the virtual meeting.

The Citizens Bond Oversight Committee is scheduled to meet quarterly for the duration of the bond projects and will receive regular written updates as well.
