Trustee Area Information
In February 2018, our district changed the method by which school board members (also known as "Directors") are elected. Instead of "at large" elections, candidates are now elected by "trustee areas." This means only voters within a given trustee area can vote for candidates who reside within that same area. During the six months before the change, the Board held several public hearings and community meetings. Community members were invited to comment on proposed map scenarios. On February 28, 2018 the Santa Rosa City Schools Board of Education approved this Trustee Area Map.
Recent census brings adjustment to Trustee Area boundaries
After each federal census, our Board of Education must approve adjustments of the trustee area boundaries, if necessary, to make sure the population in each trustee area is as nearly as equal as practicable, amongst other considerations. All school districts undergoing this process must conclude the process before March 1, 2022. Map adjustments were discussed in a public hearing at the January 26, 2022 school board meeting and also at the February 9, 2022 meeting. The Board approved Map Scenario 3 at the February 23, 2022 meeting. More information to follow.
