    OUSD Trustees to vote on Term Limits
    At the regular scheduled Thursday December 10, 2015  Orange Unified School Board meeting the OUSD Ttrustees will vote on placing trustee term limits on the ballot in 2016.

    Action Item 13 C ( Agenda page 10) is a resolution for the OUSD Board to vote on the proposed term limits for the OUSD Trustees.  The item also has the trustees deciding if the proposed limits to terms should be limited to two terms (eight years total) or three terms (twelve years total).  OUSD Trustee terms are four years.   If approved by the OUSD Board, the term limit proposal would be on the June 2016 ballot and  need  voter approval. If aproved, the term limits would not apply  retroactively.  

    The Term Limit proposal was first proposed by OUSD Board President John Ortega in April of this year.  Ortega has never faced an opponent since he was first elected in the 2001 Orange Recall Election as part of the Citizens Slate.

    2016 Bond items on Agenda 
    Two items concerning an expected 2016 Orange Unified Facilities Bond in November 2016 are also on the Thursday December 10, 2015.

    Action Item 13 B ( Agenda page 9) will have the OUSD Trustees vote on contracts for Bond Construction Management and Architectural Firms. The item has the four recommended firms working with the architects to "refine and validate the high school facility master plans created in 2014".  

    The four finalist firms are: Arcadis U.S., Inc; Balfour-Beatty Construction; Cordoba Corporation; Cumming Construction and Management Inc.  Recommendations are for the OUSD contracts to continue for the original 2014 architectural firms.

    Information Item 14 A (page 13) is a report from the election consultants  on  the financial aspect of a 2016 Bond on the November Presidential ballot.
