California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) by-Trustee Area Voting
Recently, many cities, school districts and other public entities have had their election systems challenged under the CVRA, leading to very expensive and divisive litigation. A move to by trustee area elections enables us to move forward without the potential of having to defend CVRA litigation in the future.
District staff and the Board of Education are committed to continuing to focus on all students at all school sites to ensure a quality education for our students. The change in the election system will not change the decision making process for the Board of Education. Each trustee will continue to make decisions in the best interest of the entire district regardless of the trustee area.
The transition to by- trustee area election method will involve input from the community at public hearings on options for developing and approving a trustee area map; approval from the San Bernardino County Committee on School District Organization: and the State Board of Education. Dates for community meetings will be posted on this website on August 14th.
