On October 14, the Board of Trustees approved a resolution to begin moving towards 'By-Trustee-Area' elections. PUSD Board members are currently elected in “at-large” elections, where each member is elected by voters throughout the District. Moving to Bt-Trustee-Area may provide additional opportunities for candidates from across a jurisdiction to seek election. Many school districts and local agencies, including the City of Pleasanton, have transitioned or are in the process to move from at-large to by-trustee area elections.
The process includes a variety of community and school board meetings. An initial community meeting on this topic has been scheduled for November 10, 2021, at 7 .m. via Zoom. This initial meeting will provide the community information about the process and demographic information about the district. Starting in January 2022, the district will propose Trustee-by-Area map options for review and discussion. Information about this topic and all meetings and links can be found on the District website (click here). The meetings will be recorded and the content will be posted on the website as well.
