CVRA By-Trustee Area Election

  • Background:

    The Del Norte County Unified School District (“District”) Board of Education (“District Board”) is currently elected using a “hybrid at-large” election system, meaning that governing board members must live in defined trustee areas, but are elected by voters of the entire District.  On August 12, 2021, the District Board adopted Resolution # D21-22-4, declaring its intent to transition to by-trustee area elections, where each Board member must reside within the designated trustee area boundary, and is elected only by the voters in that trustee area.

    District Board members also sit as the Del Norte County Board of Education (“County Board”), meaning any change to the method of election to the District Board will result in a corresponding change to the method of election for the County Board.  As a result, on August 12, 2021, the County Board similarly adopted Resolution # C21-22-2, declaring its intent to transition to by-trustee area elections.
