The Saugus Union School District has published four alternative maps showing the district divided into separate trustee-area regions for purposes of voting.
The various maps will be discussed and debated at several public meetings starting with Tuesday’s school board meeting and ending Nov. 17 when the board is scheduled to adopt a final map.
Up to now, all voters in the Saugus Union School District vote for all five school board members. After the switch to trustee-area elections, under the terms of a proposed settlement to a California Voting Rights Act Lawsuit, the district will still have five board members, but each resident will get to vote for just one – one from his or her own shaded area of the map.
