District 6 seeks applicants for MLO oversight committee

Greeley-Evans School District 6 is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on its Mill Levy Override Citizens’ Oversight Committee, which serves as a community accountability group for revenue collected and spent from the 2017 Mill Levy Override.

 

The MLO Citizens' Oversight Committee is responsible for ensuring the actual spending of the funds from the 2017 mill levy override is consistent with the intent of the ballot measure. This committee was formed to ensure the transparency, openness and fidelity of District 6 officials, including charter schools, in the spending of the Mill Levy Override revenue. 

 

The Citizens' Oversight Committee is composed of six District 6 residents from diverse backgrounds with diverse experiences. There are currently two vacancies, and new members will be selected by current members of the Committee. The District 6 Chief Financial Officer and the Finance Director are included in advisory positions to the committee. The Superintendent or other executive leaders participate at the request of the committee. The committee has established its role and purpose, which will govern the actions of the committee, and members must be willing to agree to an ethics policy statement.

 

Applicants must live in the boundary of Greeley-Evans School District 6. The application form is available here.

 

The committee will meet three to four times per year. The next meeting will be in March 2021. Applicants must commit to serve for at least two years.

 

Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Friday, January 22, 2021.
