In the summer of 2021, San Juan Unified transitioned to by-trustee area elections after the Board of Education approved a map that reflected seven trustee areas. Since then, 2020 census data has been released showing growth in several regions of the district. As a result, the recently approved map must be adjusted to accommodate for changes found by the Census.
Map options are expected to be available for review on Dec. 7. A presentation by the demographer and a public hearing will take place at the Dec. 14 board meeting. Community meetings will take place on Jan. 5 and 6 to offer an opportunity for input. Additionally, feedback can also be submitted online at any time by visiting www.sanjuan.edu/elections.
A public hearing is expected to take place at the Jan. 25, 2022 board meeting. The board is expected to take action to adopt a final map and pass a resolution to move on to the County Commission for approval at the Feb. 15, 2022 board meeting.
