The 7-11 Committee is a citizens’ advisory committee which was formed by the Board of Trustees to make recommendations for the future use of Joshua School.

This type of committee is needed if the district decides to sell, lease, or rent excess real property. (EC 17388) The required membership of the committee is “not less than 7 nor more than 11 members”, and is representative of the diversity of the community.

The 7-11 committee will determine the amount of surplus space and real property; establish a priority list of uses that will be acceptable to the community; allow for community input to the committee on acceptable uses of the space; make a final determination of limits of tolerance of use of space; and forward to the district governing board a report recommending uses of surplus space. (EC 17389)
