SRVUSD Parcel Tax Committee
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is seeking four new members for its Parcel Tax Oversight Committee, as well as one alternate.
The committee's role is to oversee the school board and ensure that money is used in the ways intended by voters and taxpayers. The members meet twice per year to issue a report to the board and community outlining the ways funds were used.
The roles function on an unpaid, volunteer basis. Committee members must be registered to vote, and live within the school district.
Applications are due before 3 p.m. on Friday (Sept. 17). Applications can be submitted online via the district website. New committee members will be recommended at the Oct. 15 board meeting.
DA's Community Academy
The Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office is set to launch its fourth annual Community Academy in October.
The goal of the program is to educate residents about the work the office does, as well as the criminal justice system in general, and how it operates locally, officials said. Accepted applicants have the opportunity to learn how cases are filed, what kinds of cases the office works on, and what kinds of other operations the office is responsible for.
The office is seeking interested applicants who live or work in Contra Costa County. At least 10 applicants will be selected for the nine-week course, which will meet on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the DA's office in Martinez.
Applications for the program are open until Sept. 24. Interested residents can apply and learn more by emailing [email protected]
