Dear Elk Grove Unified Students, Parents and Families,

Wishing you all a safe Winter Break. We have a few items to make sure you’re informed about related to upcoming Trustee (Board Member) area redistricting decisions, more new open job positions, COVID Vaccine Clinics and Testing location Winter Break schedule changes.


BOARD OF EDUCATION INFORMATION 

Trustee (Board Member) Area Redistricting Information
Every ten years, after the U.S. Census data is released, school districts are required to evaluate whether their current trustee areas have approximately equal populations. With the recent 2020 Census data release, EGUSD has begun the process of evaluating each of its trustee (Board member) areas for population balance, referred to as redistricting.

The District will be holding two community meetings on January 6, 2022 and January 13, 2022 regarding the redistricting process for interested parties.  Detailed information will be shared at the meetings and attendees will be given the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions.  The meetings will be held in the Board Room at the Robert L. Trigg Education Center (9510 Elk Grove-Florin Road) and will also be available virtually via Zoom.  Additional information including the Zoom link will be provided at a later date and posted on the District’s Redistricting Process web page.

EGUSD is working with professional demographers to draft and revise maps for consideration by the public and the Board. Information regarding the redistricting process and proposed revised maps, which will ensure appropriate population balance, can be found by visiting the Trustee (Board Member) Redistricting Process web page.
