Q & A on Waiver Request to State Board of Education Regarding Change in Board of Education Election System from At-Large to
By-Trustee Area Voting


On February 28, 2017, the Board of Education of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District directed a shift from the current at-large system of electing Board Members to by-trustee area elections. These Questions & Answers have been developed to provide information to all interested parties on this process. 



Q: What is the change that will take place?

A: Currently, members of the Board of Education are elected in “at-large” elections, i.e., elections in which each governing board member is a resident of a trustee area but elected by the registered voters of the entire school district. Starting in the November 2018 election, Board Members will be elected by only the voters living in a designated trustee area.


Q: How many areas will there be?

A: The Board of Education will remain at seven members; therefore there will be seven areas.



Q: How may I learn more and/or provide feedback to the Board?

A: A public hearing regarding the submission of a waiver to the State Board of Education for a change from at-large to by-trustee area elections will be held October 24, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.



Q: What if I have additional questions?

A: You may contact the Superintendent’s office via email at superintendent@nmusd.us and/or attend the public hearing referenced above.
