How is the money spent?

We consistently earn excellent reports from independent auditors and outstanding bond credit ratings, which makes us more eligible for grants that stretch the public’s dollar further. Also, a Citizens Oversight Committee monitors district spending of bond and parcel tax funds for compliance with wording in voter-approved ballot measures.
