APPROVE RESOLUTION 17-03 AUTHORIZING THE SUBMISSION OF A GENERAL WAIVER REQUEST TO THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION CONCERNING THE DISTRICT’S TRANSITION TO A BY-TRUSTEE AREA ELECTION SYSTEM (Mrs. Gonzales)

On February 3, 2016, the Board of Trustees ("Board") of the Victor Elementary School District ("District") passed Resolution No. 16-3 initiating 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 Resolution No. 16-3, the Board expressed its concern about potential exposure to litigation under the California Voting Rights Act (Elections Code § 14025 et seq.).

The Resolution also provided that the Board intended to request that the State Board of Education waive the requirements of Education Code section 5020, which requires that after the San Bernardino County Committee on School District Organization approves the District change to a by-trustee area election system, the final plan implementing the transition to a by-trustee area election system must normally be submitted to the electorate for its approval at the Districts next regular election. However, the State Board of Education is authorized to waive section 5020(a) and portions of sections 5019, 5021, and 5030 of the Education Code related to such election requirement.

Here, seeking a waiver from the election requirement is important to ensure that the by-trustee area election system is put in place for the 2018 Governing Board elections. Any delay in implementing the change to a by-trustee area election system will put the District at risk of a CVRA claim since the only “safe harbor” from a CVRA claim is to establish a by-trustee area election system. Moreover, by seeking a waiver from the election requirement, the District will save the monetary resources of putting the issue on the ballot.

The recommended action is to approve Resolution No. 17-03 authorizing the submission of a General Waiver Request to the California Department of Education concerning the District transition to a by-trustee area election system.
