DRAFT MAPS FOR TRUSTEE AREA ELECTIONS

 

Community can now preview draft maps for by-trustee area elections planned in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District

WHAT:  The Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) invites families, students, community and business leaders, and other stakeholders to attend one of seven community input forums spread over three days to review and provide feedback on a set of three draft scenarios (Red<http://mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com/file/1552638596120/1317567911809/7713630508839558284.pdf>|Green<http://mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com/file/1552638596120/1317567911809/8444151452927294680.pdf>|Blue<http://mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com/file/1552638596120/1317567911809/37098555007211487.pdf>) for future by-trustee area elections.

 As it transitions to the by-trustee area elections system model, MDUSD will be organized into five individual trustee areas. Previously, trustees were elected by voters of the entire district. In the new process, trustees will be elected by the voters living within the trustee’s respective area. Input previously provided at public hearings in June helped determine criteria used by the demographer in drafting the maps.

 Information about the process is available at https://mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com/boardelections.

 WHEN/WHERE:  The community forums will be held as follows. Flyers publicizing the forums have been translated into multiple languages:

 A third public hearing will be held at the Board of Education’s regular meeting on Monday, September 23, 2019, to review the maps. Actions may be taken at that meeting to narrow the number of maps for final consideration, make further revisions to the draft maps, and/or create a new map.  All versions would then be reviewed at a public hearing in October.

 BACKGROUND:  The timeline for establishing trustee areas and transitioning to by-trustee area election is as follows:
