    BEX and BTA Capital Programs Oversight Committee

    Building Excellence (BEX) and Buildings, Technology and Academics (BTA) Capital Programs Oversight Committee is a citizen oversight committee required by the School Board.

    The focus of the committee is to assure that the BEX and BTA programs supports academic achievement in the schools, as well as program revenues, expenditures, and planning for future BEX and BTA levies or bonds.

    Committee Responsibilities

    The BEX/BTA Capital Program Oversight Committee oversees the planning and implementation of the capital levies and makes recommendations concerning, progress of the BEX and BTA capital programs.

    The committee will also oversee the planning, prioritization and implementation of current and future BEX and BTA programs and make recommendations as to the identity, scope and priority of projects to be included in future BEX and BTA capital levies.

    The committee receives periodic briefings by district capital projects staff and is asked to monitor and comment upon the implementation of all approved projects and make recommendations for compliance with goals, priorities, scope, budget, schedule, revenue and other significant factors. A separate committee will oversee the implementation of the identified technology projects included in either capital levy. Read more on the committee charge.
