Adjustment of Trustee Area Map Boundaries (In anticipation of November 2022 Board elections)

Revisions to Trustee Areas have no impact on school attendance boundaries. School attendance boundaries are not being changed.


Due to the population growth identified in the Etiwanda School District during the 2020 Census, ESD is required to update Trustee Area Maps. A demographer provided the Board with four Trustee Area map options that comply with the requirements of the California Voting Rights Act and California Education Code Section 5019.5.
 
The Board of Trustees evaluated and discussed the four Trustee Area map scenarios with adjusted boundaries at the November 18, 2021 Board Meeting. The Board selected two maps for further consideration and public input. The Board received public input on the two maps at the Board Meetings on December 16, 2021 and January 20, 2022.  The Board voted to select an updated map at the January 20, 2022 Board Meeting. The selected map was subsequently submitted to the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters to be used for the November 2022 Board elections.

FAQs 

Why does an adjustment to boundaries on the current trustee area map need to occur?
The 2020 Census resulted in an imbalance in population size between the largest and smallest Trustee Areas. We are required by Federal and State law to ensure a population variance of no greater than 10% between the smallest and largest Trustee Areas. 
 
Will this impact where my student goes to school?
No, the adjustment of the district’s Trustee Area Maps will have no impact on school attendance zones. This adjustment simply affects which Board Trustee you may vote for.
 
When will this change go into effect?
The new Trustee Area Map will be effective for the November 2022 election and remain through the 2030 Census.
