Resolution for Election Waiver for Trustee Areas - Mt. Diablo USD LMS 2019.06..10.pdf
Summary: The District is planning to adopt a by-trustee area election map and its governing board may vote to change from an at-large election method to a by-trustee area election method. Under the provisions of Education Code section 5020 and related sections, the establishment of trustee areas and adoption of a by-trustee area election process must be put to a vote by the electors of the District. In order to avoid the cost, expense and uncertainty inherent in conducting a districtwide vote on the issue, the District is seeking a waiver of this election requirement from the State Board of Education. In order to complete the transition in a timely manner and to guarantee that the new by-trustee area process will be in place in time to elect new governing board members at the Board’s next regularly-scheduled election, the District must obtain a waiver of the election process of Education Code sections 5019, 5020, 5021 and 5030 from the State Board of Education.
