In the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, there are seven Board of Education members who are each elected to four-year terms. The terms are staggered by two years. Board elections are held during the general election in November of even numbered years. Currently, Board members are elected through an at-large voting system in which each Board member is required to reside in a Trustee Area.
Due to the extensive population growth on the east side of the district, it is necessary to consider readjustment of Trustee Areas. To this end the Superintendent convened a committee to review the Trustee Areas.
The committee, with the assistance of a demographer, reviewed the Trustee Areas that would be of similar population.
At the February 28, 2017 Board of Education Meeting the committee will recommend the boundary adjustments in Map B.
