PUBLIC HEARING TO RECEIVE PUBLIC TESTIMONY CONCERNING PROPOSED TRUSTEE VOTING AREA PLANS ASSOCIATED WITH THE DISTRICT TRANSITION TO A BY-TRUSTEE AREA ELECTION SYSTEM. (Mrs. Gonzales)

The Board of Trustees will convene a public hearing to receive public testimony concerning proposed trustee voting area plans associated with the District transition to a by-trustee area election system.

The Victor Elementary School District (“District”) Board of Trustees (“Board”) voted to approve the proposal to initiate the process for the District to transition from an “at-large” election system to a “by-trustee area” election system commencing with the 2018 Board elections.

As part of the process to transition to a by-trustee area election system, the Board will need to adopt a trustee area plan for implementing the new voting trustee areas. In advance of adopting a final plan, the District is required to seek public input on the proposed trustee area plans. The presentation and consideration of the proposed trustee area plans during a public hearing is an important part of the transition to a by-trustee area election system so that comments and input can be received from the public. The District looks forward to receiving community input.

The proposed trustee area plans were prepared by a demographer, previously selected and authorized by the Board. During this hearing, the District demographer will present and explain the proposed trustee area plans. The Board will then receive comments and input from members of the public concerning the proposed trustee area plans presented.
