A change in the way school board members in the Cajon Valley Union School District are elected has been submitted for approval to the San Diego County Board of Education. This change would affect the way residents of the district are represented on the school district's governing board for years to come. Under the new election system, the district would be divided into five geographic areas, and one board member living in each area would be elected by the voters who live in that area.
The County Board of Education sought input from the community at a public hearing held Feb. 5, 2018, on the proposed change in the district's election system and the proposed boundaries of trustee areas.
At its Feb. 14 regular board meeting, the San Diego County Board of Education, acting as the County Committee on School District Organization, adopted two separate resolutions which have established trustee areas for the purpose of implementing by-trustee-area elections for members of the Cajon Valley Union School District Governing Board in accordance with the trustee area map identified as “Tan Map.”
