Agenda & Minutes
TUSD Board will be taking steps toward creating seven separate trustee districts, eliminating the current at-large system of electing school board members:
Information on CVRA (California Voting Rights Act)
Board members are currently elected in “at-large” elections, where each member is elected by voters throughout the District. The California Voting Rights Act (“CVRA”) prohibits the use of “at-large” elections in certain circumstances. Thus, in light of the CVRA, many school district and local agencies have transitioned from at-large to by-trustee area elections to avoid the cost associated with CVRA litigation. Many nearby local agencies have already made this transition or are in the process of doing so.
The Board seeks public input on the trustee area boundaries and will employ the following steps and estimated timeline to facilitate this transition:
February-March 2023: Pre-Map Public Hearings
April-May 2023: Develop Trustee Area Maps with Public Input & Associated Public Hearings
June 2023: Final Public Hearing & Adoption of Trustee Area Maps
This estimated timeline may be augmented or adjusted by the District as necessary. These steps will be followed by submittal of the proposed transition for final approval by the County Committee. This webpage will be updated throughout this process.
