________________________________________________
The information below outlines past steps for the transition to a By-Trustee Area Election system where the community provided input.
The Jurupa Unified School District Board of Education approved a resolution to initiate the transition to a By-Trustee Area Election system beginning with the November 2022 Board of Education election. Updated information will be provided here. Posted information will include the timeline and steps for the transition to a By-Trustee Area Election system, draft maps of By-Trustee Area boundaries, copies of presentations made to the Board of Education, and notices of all public hearings where the community may provide input on the proposed map options.  

As the District continues to move through the process of transitioning to “by-Trustee-area" elections under the legal requirements of the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA), we have reached a critical point.  The District is releasing three map options to the community for study and input.  All three of the map options being considered meet the legal requirements outlined in CVRA.  

The District is providing multiple in-person opportunities to the community to review and provide feedback over the next two months before the Board of Education votes on December 13, 2021 for a map that will be put into effect for the November 2022 Board elections.

This release of map options comes at the end of the “Pre-Map" period wherein the District engaged the community with two public hearings to solicit input before drawing map options. 

Each map option for consideration:

  1. Meets the equal population requirement (that each trustee area have equal population with up to a 10% variance);
  2. Increases the voting power of the largest protected classes in the District by Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP/eligible voters) in at least one Trustee Area based on up-to-date CVAP statistics compared to District-wide averages;
  3. Complies with the Federal Voting Rights Act;
  4. Respects communities of interest as much as possible;
  5. Is compact and contiguous as much as possible; and
  6. Follows man-made and natural geographic features as much as possible.​​
