By-trustee area elections

Apple Valley Unified School District ("District") is in the process of transitioning the method by which Governing Board members are elected.  Under the current "at-large" system, all registered voters in the District’s boundaries can vote for candidates for Board member seats.  Under the new proposed system, candidates will be elected by "trustee areas."  This means only voters within a given trustee area can vote for candidates who reside within that same area. 

Transitioning to this new system requires the Board to hold public hearings on proposed trustee area boundaries (or maps) prior to asking the San Bernardino County Committee on School District Organization to approve the change.  If the Committee approves the change, "by-trustee" area voting would be held starting with the 2018 general election, on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
