School District Seeks Applicants for Parcel Tax Oversight Committees

Application forms are now online for residents interested in serving on one of two seven-member parcel tax oversight committees.

The committees’ structure will follow the format of the statutes that apply to general obligation bond tax oversight committees (Proposition 39 and Education Code sections 15278, 15280 and 15282). The committees will be in place to oversee the expenditure of parcel tax revenues authorized by the Nov. 4, 2008, passage of Santa Barbara School District‘s Measure H2008 and Measure I2008.

The elementary district and secondary district oversight committee application forms must be completed and turned in to the school district by 4 p.m. Jan. 23. Forms are available online at www.sbsdk12.org or can be picked up at the district Administrative Office, 720 Santa Barbara St.

The parcel tax measures support student achievement and high-quality instruction in the following ways:

Measure H2008-Santa Barbara High School District

$23 per year for four years, beginning in the fiscal year starting July 1, 2009, and ending in the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2012.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
