Member selections will be announced at a future Board meeting. One representative from each of the city's seven wards will be selected to serve on the committee.

The committee will be expected to meet monthly for the first six months and then move to quarterly meetings, if deemed appropriate, with approval from the School Board. The committee will provide feedback to the Board based on updates from the District regarding the status of construction and the use of bond funds.
