ADOPT RESOLUTION #17-02 AUTHORIZING SELECTION & ADOPTION OF A FINAL TRUSTEE AREA PLAN FOR TRANSITION TO A "BY-TRUSTEE AREA" ELECTION SYSTEM & SUBMISSION OF THE PLAN TO SAN BERNARDINO CO COMMITTEE ON SCHOOL DIST. ORGANIZATION FOR APPROVAL(Mrs. Gonzales)

On February 3, 2016, 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. In approving the proposal, the Board was concerned about potential exposure to litigation under the California Voting Rights Act ("CVRA"), particularly taking into consideration the broad language of the CVRA and the fact that the CVRA grants a prevailing plaintiff the right to recover reasonable attorneys fees and expert witness fees. The process included compiling information and data to develop districting options and presentation of the options to the Board and the public.

As part of the process to transition to a "By-Trustee Area" election system, the Board will need to adopt a final trustee area plan for implementing the new voting trustee areas. In advance of adopting a final plan, the District was required to, and did, 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 previously held public hearings and community meetings on the following dates: Community Meetings held on October 11, 2016, October 20, 2016 and November 7, 2016; Public Hearings held on October 5, 2016, December 7, 2016, January 18, 2017, and today, on February 8, 2017.

The Governing Board will consider and adopt Resolution No. 17-02 authorizing the selection and adoption of a final trustee area plan and submission to the County Committee.


The Board will vote on adoption of Resolution No. 17-02 and select trustee area plan scenario (insert scenario color)_____________ as the final trustee area map.

The Board will vote and identify trustee areas (insert trustee area numbers for seats that will come up in the 2018 election)____,__________ to commence with the 2018 election and trustee areas (insert remaining trustee area numbers for the remaining seats that will come up in the 2020 election) _________,_____ to commence with the 2020 election. This will complete adoption of the resolution.
