7-11 District Advisory Committee


 

This committee will make a formal recommendation to the Board of Trustees around small school closures/consolidations and possible uses for the property if any schools are closed. We are committed to both inclusion and transparency in this process and to that end, the committee’s proceedings and deliberations will be open to the public and all minutes and recordings will be published on our district website.

Under California law (Education Code sec. 17389), the Committee must have at least seven (7) members and no more than eleven (11) members and contain persons who can be representative of each of the following:

  1. The ethnic, age group and socioeconomic composition of the district;

  2. The business community, such as store owners, managers, or supervisors;

  3. Landowners or renters, with preference to be given to representatives of neighborhood associations;

  4. Teachers;

  5. Administrators;

  6. Parents of students;

  7. Persons with expertise in environmental impact, legal contracts, building codes, and land use planning, including, but not limited to, knowledge of the zoning and other land use restrictions of the cities or cities and counties in which surplus space and real property is located.

California law also designates the specific duties of a 7-11 Committee (Education Code § 17390) as follows:

  1. Review the projected school enrollment and other data as provided by the district to determine the amount of surplus space and real property;

  2. Establish a priority list of use of surplus space and real property that will be acceptable to the community;

  3. Cause to have circulated throughout the attendance area a priority list of surplus space and real property and provide for hearings of community input to the Committee on acceptable uses of space and real property, including the sale or lease of surplus real property for child care development purposes pursuant to Education Code § 17458;

  4. Make a final determination of limits of tolerance of use of space and real property;

  5. Forward to the Board of Trustees a report recommending uses of surplus space and real property.
