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.

Gloria Macias Harrison

Chair

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in San Bernardino and attended our local public schools growing up like Harding, Alessandro, Franklin Jr. and San Bernardino High School. I continued my education at San Bernardino Valley College and went on to receive my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts are from the University of California, Riverside.

What is your relationship to San Bernardino city and the district?
I serve on the city’s charter review committee and have served in various local committees and commissions in the past. I’m also part of the citizen’s advisory group that helps create Making Hope Happen for the SBUSD.

Why did you volunteer for the committee?
Having been involved in the construction of several facilities at Crafton Hills College, I was asked to join by a former COC member.

Why do you care about SBCUSD’s facilities being the best?
I believe that a safe, maintained, and modern facility is important to foster a meaningful learning environment for students, teachers and staff.

What are your goals for SBCUSD during your COC membership?
My main goal is to ensure bond measure funds are used appropriately. Additionally, I would like to see a long-range facilities plan for the district and I will work to establish a maintenance fund.
