The Vista school board will weigh this Thursday whether to start electing board members by smaller subdistricts, instead of at large from the entire school district, the North County Times reports. Doing so is supposed to ensure minority voters aren’t drowned out.
The push has countywide implications because it was spurred by a legal challenge elsewhere in California that could spur school districts to change their election systems. Vista may only be the first school district to alter how its board is elected.
Where else is this happening? If you know of other school districts that are moving this way, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
