The citizens of Alameda County have time and again shown their support for the Peralta Colleges at the ballot box, approving a Parcel Tax and Bond Measures A and most recently Measure G. The District is committed to delivering an exceptional return on investment, and this support is bringing much-needed improvements to our colleges.

Along with this opportunity, comes responsibility. An important part of maintaining transparency and the community’s trust is the Citizens’ Oversight Committee.

The Peralta Community College District is committed to responsible stewardship of all bond and parcel tax funds. Measures A, G, and E adhere to all accountability standards governing the management of these programs. Two separate Citizens’ Oversight Committees, comprised of members of the community, will provide bond and parcel tax oversight, reviewing all expenditures to ensure alignment with the ballot text.

The District is seeking volunteers to fill the current committee vacancies. Apply HERE
