Thank You, Voters!

The Peralta Community College District would like to thank the residents of our community for the strong vote of confidence in the District and our Peralta Colleges!

During the election of Nov. 2018, Northern Alameda County voters overwhelmingly approved Measure G, the District’s $800 million bond proposal to facilitate improvements to facilities and new construction. Voters also approved Measure E, extending the current $48 per parcel tax to supplement funding for core academic programs at the Peralta Colleges, which include Berkeley City College, College of Alameda, and Laney and Merritt colleges in Oakland.

The District is indebted to the community for its overwhelming support and grateful for continued confidence and trust in our mission to provide accessible, high-quality higher education, career training and work force development.

The District remains committed to delivering an exceptional return on investment, and this support will bring much-needed improvements to our colleges, allowing us to address several priorities over the next five-to-seven years and better serve our multicultural communities.

Get Involved! Along with this opportunity, comes responsibility. 

The Peralta Community College District is committed to responsible stewardship of all bond and parcel tax funds. Measures G and E adhere to all accountability standards governing the management of these programs. Two separate Citizens’ Oversight Committees, comprised of members of the community, will provide bond and parcel tax oversight, reviewing all expenditures to ensure alignment with the ballot text.

The District is seeking applicants for its Measure G Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee and the Measure E Citizens’ Parcel Tax Oversight Committee.

Candidates appointed to the independent, volunteer oversight committees review and report to the public on the District’s bond and parcel tax expenditures, respectively. Applicants must reside in the District’s service area, which includes the cities of Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland and Piedmont. Applicants may not be an employee, contractor, consultant or vendor of the District. Deadline for application submission is June 30, 2019.

Sincerely,
