Documents and Certificates of Participation (COP) : Details

It is not unusual for a Community College District to use Certificates of Participation to fund campus improvement projects between bond measures. In addition, it is not unusual for a Community College District to then use money from an approved bond measure to retire what remains of that past funding from Certificates of Participation (COPs). The following documents detail what campus additions/improvements at VVC were funded by the 1997 Certificates of Participation, and also what other California Community College Districts have used their own local bond measures to pay off remaining COPs.
