The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) is accepting applications for volunteers to serve on the E-SPLOST (Education Special-Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) Advisory Committee. Applications can be submitted online until Friday, July 12.
The E-SPLOST Advisory Committee provides citizen input, oversight, and review of a voter-approved project list paid for with E-SPLOST revenue. The committee consists of members of the public who share the common goal of maintaining transparency and communication from DCSD to the DeKalb County community.
Candidates must be residents within DCSD boundaries. Members may not be DeKalb County Board of Education members, DCSD employees, or have any economic interest in DCSD projects. Experience in accounting, architecture, auditing, construction, engineering, finance, K-12 education, law, planning, project management, and/or real estate is desired.
In addition, candidates must be able to commit two hours a month to attend meetings. These meetings typically take place in the evening. If selected, members must also pass a background check and sign a non-disclosure agreement.
