Trustee Area Redistricting

Trustee Area Redistricting Assessment

Based on 2020 Census data, school districts with trustee area systems are required to review and, if necessary, adjust their trustee area map by March 1, 2022, to ensure population balance. This applies to CNUSD, which transitioned to a by-trustee area election system in 2014 to ensure compliance with the California Voting Rights Act or "CVRA". Please note that this is a required action when Census data is released every decade. This action does not impact school boundaries.
