No funds may be used for teacher and administrator salaries or any other school operating expenses.

Independent performance and financial audits will be performed annually to ensure that the funds received from the sale of the bonds are expended as specified in the Measure. All bond expenditures will be monitored by an independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee to ensure that the funds are spent as specified.
