Prior to the sale or lease of District-owned property, the Board of Trustees must appoint an advisory committee consisting of no less than seven (7) members and no more than eleven (11) members in accordance with the criteria set forth in Education Code 17389. The committee's purpose is to advise the Board of Trustees in developing District-wide policies and procedures in the use or disposition of school buildings or space not needed for school purposes (Ed. Code 17387, 17388).
The 7-11 Advisory Committee has the duty of (a)reviewing projected District enrollment to determine the amount of surplus space and real property; (b)establishing a priority list of surplus space and real property that will be acceptable to the community; (c)causing to have circulated throughout the attendance area the priority list and provide for hearings of community input on acceptable uses; (d)making a final determination of limits of tolerance of use and (e)forwarding a written report recommending a determination of whether real property is surplus and recommending uses of surplus space and real property (Ed. Code 17390).
The Committee's recommendation is advisory only and need not be implemented by the Board. At the Board's regularly scheduled meeting on March 12, 2019, Resolution No. S-39-18/19 was adopted authorizing the formation of a Surplus Property 7-11 Committee.
