Trustee Voting Areas & Election Cycle

By-Trustee Area Voting Map Adopted

August 17, 2017

The Tustin Unified School District Board of Education adopted the “Orange Version” by-trustee area voting map at its July 10, 2017, meeting. (PDF - Adopted By-Trustee Area Voting Map - Orange Version)

Here is an overview of the Tustin Unified School District's "next steps" during its transition to by-trustee area elections:

A petition was prepared and sent to the Orange County Committee on School District Organization requesting approval of the District's adopted map. Additionally, the District has filed its waiver request to the State Board of Education (authorization was provided via TUSD Board Resolution on June 26).

The County Committee held a public hearing on August 16 in the Board Room at the TUSD Administration Center regarding the school district's proposed transition. The District made a presentation to the committee. The County Committee unanimously approved the District's map.

The State Board of Education (at either its September 13-14, 2017 or November 8-9, 2017 meeting) will hopefully approve the District's waiver. Thereafter, the District will file the new/approved map with the Orange County Registrar of Voters for use during the November 2018 election.

The election timing will be as follows: Areas 3 and 5 in 2018, and Areas 1, 2 and 4 in 2020 (see by-trustee area voting map).
