San Dieguito Union High School District Logo

I encourage you to participate in an important process led by the San Dieguito Union High School District Board of Trustees.

On September 27, 2017, the District initiated the process of transitioning the method by which Governing Board members are elected.  Under the current “at-large” system, all registered voters in the District’s boundaries can vote for candidates for Board member seats.  Under the new proposed system, candidates will be elected by “trustee areas.”  This means only voters within a given trustee area can vote for candidates who reside within that same area.  The intent of this proposed system is to offer greater opportunities for Board representation for candidates who might not otherwise be elected under an at-large system.

Transitioning to this new system under the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) requires the Board to hold public hearings on proposed trustee area boundaries (or maps) prior to asking the San Diego County Committee on School District Organization to approve the change.  If the Committee approves the change, “by-trustee” area voting would be held starting with the 2018 general election, on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Before the District prepares and presents draft map options, the law requires the District to hold two public hearings to solicit comments and feedback regarding the potential trustee areas.  Thereafter, the District will be hosting a series of public hearings and community meetings regarding the map options, once created.  The dates/times and locations of the upcoming public hearings and community meetings are shown below.  You are invited to attend as many as you would like.  If you cannot attend a hearing or meeting and wish to review and/or comment regarding potential trustee areas as well as on the proposed “trustee area” maps, once created, please do not hesitate to submit your comments and feedback to the email address below.  Following the initial public hearings, the proposed maps will be created and posted on the District’s web site, cvra.sduhsd.net.

You may email any comments or questions to cvra@sduhsd.net.
