As outlined in Education Code Section 15278, the role of the Compton Community College District (CCCD) Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee is to "inform the public concerning the District's expenditure of revenues received from the sale of bonds authorized by the voters." Members are appointed by the Special Trustee for the CCCD and serve a term of two years, with a two-term maximum. Members do not receive any compensation or benefits for their service. The committee meets on a quarterly basis.
The CCCD has been successful in seeking state and local funds for capital improvements as evidenced by the passage of Measure CC in November 2002, which authorized the issuance of $100 million in general obligation bonds. Measure CC provided for taxation to homeowners and property owners of a nominal tax generated over a period of years, through 2017.
Then, in November 2014 voters passed Measure C, which authorized the district to issue up to $100 million of general obligation bonds for up to 28 capital construction and renovation projects. The passage of Measure C will ensure improved facilities and educational opportunities for students well into the future.
Construction has continued throughout the Compton College campus since the first bond was approved in 2002. In February 2012, the Special Trustee for the Compton Community College District appointed a seven-member Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee.
