The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education is looking for residents who can help them plan the district’s future facility and infrastructure needs by volunteering on its Facilities Oversight and Advisory Committee (FOAC).
Primarily tasked with advising the Board of Education on a variety of financial and facility based issues, FOAC offers residents the opportunity to participate in the process of reviewing school facilities and helping district officials plan for the future.
According to district officials, FOAC members will be tasked with the following responsibilities:

*Review and advise on district standards and long term maintenance of all facilities.
*Review and advise on the development of a comprehensive list of facilities priorities that would Require additional revenue sources.
*Review and advise on solutions for the proper protection of the community’s investment in maintenance of school facilities.
Consisting of at least seven members, commissioners will meet at least four times a year, serve without compensation for at least one two-year term, and will serve no more than three consecutive terms.
In an effort to ensure that FOAC is staffed with commissioners who possess a wide variety of skills and knowledge, district officials will seek applicants who are active in the following areas:
