deadlines for trustee zones

The deadline for districts to redraw trustee boundaries is before March 1, 2022, which means the deadline is February 28, 2022. Below are the Education Code sections that outline this information:

 

5019.5.

(a) Following each decennial federal census, and using population figures as validated by the Demographic Research Unit of the Department of Finance as a basis, the governing board of each school district or community college district in which trustee areas have been established, and in which each trustee is elected by the residents of the area the trustee represents, shall adjust the boundaries of any or all of the trustee areas of the district so that one or both of the following conditions is satisfied:

(1) The population of each area is, as nearly as may be, the same proportion of the total population of the district as the ratio that the number of governing board members elected from the area bears to the total number of members of the governing board.

(2) The population of each area is, as nearly as may be, the same proportion of the total population of the district as each of the other areas.

(b) The boundaries of the trustee areas shall be adjusted by the governing board of each school district or community college district, in accordance with subdivision (a), before the first day of March of the year following the year in which the results of each decennial census are released. If the governing board fails to adjust the boundaries before the first day of March of the year following the year in which the results of each decennial census are released, the county committee on school district organization shall do so before the 30th day of April of the same year.

The governing board of the school district or community college district shall reimburse all reasonable costs incurred by a county committee in adjusting the boundaries pursuant to this subdivision.

(c) Except to the extent that the adjustment of trustee area boundaries is necessary for the purposes set forth in this section, the authority to establish or abolish trustee areas, rearrange the boundaries of trustee areas, increase or decrease the number of members of the governing board, or adopt any method of electing governing board members may be exercised only as otherwise provided under this article.

maps that were considered by the board of trustees 

Map 1
Data for Map 1
Data for Map 1

Map 1 meets the variance criteria. It represents a balanced and meaningful trustee zone based on 2020 US Census data. This map moved forward for consideration by the Board of Trustees for the January 10, 2022 meeting. The map was not chosen due to the zone's irregular shape for trustee zone 4 and the division of communities. 

Scenario Map 2

Map 2 was not brought forward by the Board of Trustees due to the odd configuration of Trustee Zone 5.

Scenario Map 3

Map 3 meets the variance criteria. It represents a balanced and meaningful trustee zone based on 2020 US Census data. This map moved forward for consideration by the Board of Trustees for the January 10, 2022 meeting. This map was chosen by the Board of Trustees for the MVSD Trustee Zones beginning with the November 2022 election. This has been forwarded to the San Bernardino County Committee on School District Organization.

Scenario Map 4

Map 4 was not brought forward by the Board of Trustees due to the odd configuration of Trustee Zones 1 and 4. There was a particular concern about the splitting of neighborhoods, communities and regions. 

we are seeking your input

The Trustee Zone Project began in September 2021. 

There are several steps in the process to developing, reviewing and approving of trustee zones. 

As of December 15, 2021 we are  on step 8 of this process with maps being reviewed based on public hearing from our December 13th meeting.

Revised maps including moving from four to two maps will be posted on this website no later than January 3, 2022. 

The Board of Trustees will be eliciting public input on the conceptual maps during Public Hearing at the January 10, 2022 meeting which begins at 7pm. 

The Board of Trustees will vote on a final trustee zone map at the January 10 meeting. 

map actions

Sept 13

The Board reviewed the first set of proposed maps including the existing at large districtwide map and the map of known regions. 

Oct 12

The Board reviewed a refinement of maps including communities, natural boundaries and received more information on census data blocks that would help determine conceptual maps for consideration. 

Nov 8

Revised maps are reviewed by the Board. The four map scenarios represent balanced populations based on the 2020 US Census. The four conceptual map scenarios also indicate location of current trustees as well as school locations as of 2022. 

DEC 13

The Board conducted a Public Hearing on the conceptual map scenarios. The Board asked questions related to the pros and cons of each of the scenarios. The Board narrowed the map scenarios for four to two maps. The two maps will be reviewed again before they will be brought forward at the January meeting for Public Hearing and a Board Vote.

 

Jan 3

Notifications for Public Hearing Number 3 posted along with the two proposed trustee zone maps. 

 

Jan 5

Updates made to Trustee Zone Webpage to reflect the two maps the Board of Trustees are considering and the demographic information for each map. 

 

Jan 10

The Board of Trustees voted to approve Map #3 as the Trustee Zone Map that supports the change from at large to trustee zone elections. 

NEXT STEPS:

SB County Committee on School District Organization will meet VIRTUALLY to conduct a public hearing and discuss MVSD's methods and progress towards changing from at large to trustee zone elections.  This virtual committee meeting will take place at a date to be determined in late February  or early March. More details and attendance links will come out in the coming weeks.
