FRC - PUSD - PCOE Trustee Area Boundary Public Forums

A series of public forums will be held to encourage participation by stakeholders who wish to provide input regarding a proposal to transition to a by-trustee area election process.  Community input and participation is key at all stages of developing the trustee area boundaries.

The FRC and PUSD/PCOE boards request public input for drafting trustee area map boundaries according to the following criteria:

Required criteria for trustee areas:

  • balanced populations;
  • no gerrymandering of boundaries;
  • boundaries shall not result in a denial or abridgement of the right of any citizen to vote on account of race or color

Optional criteria for trustee areas:

  • compactness;
  • contiguity;
  • observe communities of interest such as high school attendance areas, rural or urban populations, municipalities, social interests; visible features such as topography and geography, and major highways, waterways, etc.

Both boards have voiced that the following considerations be used when developing trustee area boundaries:

  • Target numbers of voters within 5% range from mean
  • Do not split any contiguous small community (i.e. Graeagle, Greenville, Crescent Mills, Meadow Valley, etc.)
  • Do not create an island in the larger population areas (i.e. Quincy) as one trustee area surrounded by a single other trustee area.
  • When possible, follow Board of Supervisors boundaries, except do not split east Quincy if possible
  • Use roads as dividing lines between areas
  • Split high school boundaries only when necessary
