The Sacramento County Board of Education approved redistricting maps realigning its trustee area boundaries at its July 12 meeting, but are still seeking public input before finalizing the plans. In response to 2010 Census population counts, county board of education trustee areas must be assessed and adjusted to meet legally required population criteria.
The final Sacramento County Board of Education Trustee Area maps, along with narrative descriptions of each area, are being prepared and submitted for public hearing and approval by the Sacramento County Committee on School District Organization. The committee will meet at 7:15 p.m. Aug. 16 at the David P. Meaney Education Center, 10474 Mather Blvd., Sacramento.
Interested members of the public are invited to attend and comment on the boundary realignment.
The Sacramento County Board of Education appointed a redistricting committee to work on the redistricting process of the trustee areas, and contracted with Thomas M. Griffin Law Offices and EdTec Inc. for redistricting services and expertise. Population data from the 2010 Census was analyzed and used to suggest potential adjustments to trustee areas in order to ensure compliance with state and federal law.
Following approval, the final maps and narrative descriptions will be submitted to the County Registrar of Voters in Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, Placer and Yolo counties.
