One of the early steps in the Pueblo School District 60 Bond Program was to appoint members to the Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee (CBAC). The CBAC is a nine-member committee tasked with monitoring the status of all Bond Program projects, providing feedback when appropriate and producing quarterly and annual reports to the Board of Education. 

Eighteen individuals applied to be part of the CBAC, and at the Dec. 10 Board of Education meeting, the District 60 Superintendent's Office recommended its nine choices. In deciding the members of these committees, professional experience in such facets as building design, construction, capital program management, construction financing, planning, budgeting, auditing and facility operations, were considered. Additionally, every effort was made for each of the District's four quadrants to have representation on the committee.

Those selected include:
  • Aaron Suazo
  • Gary Trujillo
  • Randy Lind
  • Michael Donnell
  • Todd Mihelich
  • Kenneth Lane
  • Brittany Campbell
  • Matthew Trujillo
  • Deborah Stephens
The committee will likely assemble for the first time in January, when a chairman and vice chair will be voted upon. The committee is expected to provide a high level of accountability and communication, on behalf of the board, to the citizens.

Upcoming milestones tentatively occurring in January include:
  • Board of Education will determine the architectural firm for Centennial and East high schools
  • Board of Education will determine the construction firm for Centennial and East
  • The sale of the $218 million bond will be finalized
