About Measure K / COC
In 2014, Azusa voters approved Measure K, the first general-obligation bond sought by Azusa Unified since 2002. Measure K authorized the school district to issue, over roughly 8-10 years, a total of $92 million in general-obligation (GO) bonds to generate funds for repairing and modernizing our schools.
Measure K continues the work begun under 2002’s Measure I. The AUSD School Board carefully reviewed the progress made under Measure I and what was needed to complete it. The Board gauged the community’s support for various bond amounts and determined that $92 million would allow AUSD to address the most pressing facilities needs to help ensure that our students could learn at safe, clean and modern schools.
Citizens Oversight Committee (COC)
In accordance with state law, AUSD has selected a Citizens Oversight Committee to regularly review all Measure K expenditures and ensure all funds are used appropriately. The committee members represent various community stakeholders. They are Dr. Mark Dickerson (Business Organization), Robert Donnelson (at-large Community Member), Cheryl Kohorst (Taxpayer Organization), Luz Fields (Parent of Student/PTA), Shawn Miller (at-large Community Member), Charles Ramirez (Senior Citizen Organization) and Adrian Greer (Parent of Student).
