Will this impact where my student goes to school?
No, the El Monte Union High School District’s transition from an At-Large to By-Trustee Area voting will not have an impact on school attendance zones.
How many trustee areas will be established?
Five separate By-Trustee voting areas will be established within the district boundary map.
How will the EMUHSD determine the trustee area map?
The District has enlisted a demographer and a public involvement team to lead the process. The demographer will develop several map options that best align with the criteria established and adopted by the Board of Trustees. Public hearings will be conducted prior to the creation of map options and community meetings will be held for the purpose of discussion and to receive input on the draft maps. Following comments from the community, the Board of Trustees will begin to narrow draft map options and prepare to select a final map for adoption. The approved map will be presented to the Los Angeles County Committee on School District Organization for approval at a later date.
When will this change go into effect?
Beginning in November 2022, residents will vote for a single Board of Trustees candidate residing in their newly drawn trustee area.
