TVUSD By-Trustee Area Election Method - Public Engagement Process, Timeline and Actions
The Temecula Valley Unified School District Governing Board members are currently elected by an At-Large Election System where voters of the entire jurisdiction elect all members to the Governing Board.
Consistent with the California Voting Rights Act of 2001, the Governing Board has initiated a process to obtain public input to transition to a By-Trustee Area Election System. A By-Trustee Area Election System means the district is divided into trustee areas where the governing board member must reside. The Governing Board members are elected by only the registered voters in the particular trustee areas.
Below is the timeline of activities associated with the process. The District hosted three public information meetings and three public hearings prior to the Board's action on February 16, 2016. On February 16, 2016, the Governing Board took action and adopted Trustee Area Map #1 and accompanying Resolution in support of changing the election method to a By-Trustee Area. The vote taken was 3/2 (Farnbach and Hinkson opposed).
