SEPTEMBER 16, 2021:

The Pacific Grove Unified School District Board of Education is working with National Demographics Corporation, demographic experts who presented information on the process and potential criteria for drawing the trustee-area boundary maps.  After the demographer’s presentation, the Board held the second of two statutorily required hearings and received input from the community on the trustee-area map creation process, pursuant to Elections Code section 10010, subdivision (a)(1).
 
At this meeting, the Board considered an optional resolution to identify specific criteria to guide the demographer in the development of draft trustee area maps.  The criteria options were identified in a checklist format as Exhibit A to the resolution, allowing the Board choice in which criteria to prioritize.  After discussion, the Board decided not to take action on the resolution on September 16, as it wanted additional time to gather further community input to determine what factors the public would prefer trustee area maps take into account.  Again, a resolution laying out the criteria is not legally required.

The Board adopted Resolution 1069, declaring its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area Board elections, where each Board member must reside within the designated trustee area boundary, and is elected only by the voters in that trustee area. Under the by-trustee area system, voters would only vote for one seat on the school board.
Pursuant to Education Code section 35012, the Pacific Grove Unified School District’s Board of Education is currently elected under an at-large election system, where trustees are elected by voters of the entire District.  Trustees are elected in even-numbered years and serve staggered, four-year terms, such that the next election for three trustee seats is scheduled for November 2022, with the remaining trustee seats scheduled for election in November 2024.
