Trustee Area Maps

The District currently elects its Board members using an “at large” method of election.  In order to ensure compliance with the California Voting Rights Act, the District is initiating the legal and regulatory process to establish trustee areas within the District, as provided in Education Code section 5019, in sufficient time for trustee areas to be established for the November 2022 election.
 
At this time, three conceptual maps have been prepared and the District is seeking input from the community. Below are links to the maps and comment forms.
 
Considerations in Trustee Areas:
  • Each area shall contain nearly equal number of inhabitants
  • Drawn to comply with the Federal Voting Rights Act
  • Compact and contiguous, as much as possible
  • Respect communities of interest, as much as possible
  • Follow man-made and natural geographic features, as much as possible
  • Respect incumbency, if possible
  • Other local considerations (i.e., school boundaries, locations of school sites)
