The Capistrano Unified School District is inviting community members to join a committee tasked with examining facility needs and funding challenges facing the district.

All residents, parents, students, business owners, teachers, retirees and taxpayers within district boundaries are welcome to sign up to assist staff and administration in reviewing, discussing and ultimately making decisions regarding “current and future needs for improving and enhancing” school classrooms and campus facilities.

“The committee will also address school funding challenges, public information and community opinions as well as recommendation to the CUSD trustees,” a district press release read.

The community committee will meet on Thursdays for four weeks beginning Oct. 15 and concluding on Nov. 5. The meetings will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will take place at the district office, located at 33122 Valle Road in San Juan Capistrano. CUSD asks that volunteers participate in all four meetings.

Those interested in participating can sign up at, email or mail a notice of interest to the district at 33122 Valle Road, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675. Potential volunteers are asked to submit their name, phone number and email address no later than 5 p.m. Sept. 30.
