District Formation Process

Establishing By-Trustee Areas

Effective November 2020, residents living within the Whittier Union High School District boundaries will vote for a single candidate residing in their newly drawn trustee-area, usually one-fifth of the entire district, as part of the District's transition from at-large elections to by-trustee area elections.

Whittier Union is holding a series public meetings and community workshops to gather community input as it begins the process of shifting elections methods. The change is being implemented to comply with the California Voting Rights Act.

The public is invited to provide input regarding the process of establishing trustee areas, the composition of trustee areas and the criteria for trustee areas that the demographer will consider in drafting the maps.

This website will provide the public with regular updates on upcoming meetings, planned workshops, meet-the-demographer opportunities and key decisions that are made.
