The Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) is a team of passionate and committed local residents, business leaders and parents who work to ensure that SBCUSD Facilities projects are getting students the resources they need to succeed! These members are active in the community and carry with them a special connection to San Bernardino that shines through their dedication to the role.

Our Committee

The members are: (top row, left to right) Nyutosia Cade Cornish, James Stark, David Clark; (bottom row, left to right): Gloria Macias Harrison, Maria Garcia, Erika Maria Delgado De Ramos.

Nyutosia Cade Cornish

Co-Chair

“I am passionate about SBCUSD because my children have been a part of the district since the age of five. The district has made major progress and has shown that the children are its priority. Being a member of COC allows me to see those changes from within and have a voice in choosing to do more for our children. As a parent you can no longer sit on the sidelines and watch your children go through school. You have to be involved.”
