BOARD OF EDUCATION

The Lemoore Union Elementary School District Governing Board consists of five members who represent the five trustee areas of the District. Board members are elected to a four- year term by the voters within their respective trustee areas. The terms of board members are staggered to allow for continuity on the board. From among its members, the Board elects a president and a clerk at its annual December meeting.

Action on Citizens' Concerns
The board and the staff of the Lemoore Union Elementary School District are dedicated to the health, safety and educational well-being of the students. Citizens who have questions or concerns are encouraged to first seek answers or resolutions at the site level where the issue can generally be addressed quickly and effectively.

Board Meetings
Lemoore Union Elementary School District Governing Board meetings are held once a month on the second Tuesday of every month. Meetings are held in the Board Room at 1200 West Cinnamon Drive. Regular Board meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. Special Board meetings may be called as needed. Meeting dates and times are announced to the media in advance.

All actions of the Board take place in public session. However, the Board may adjourn to a closed session, in accordance with the California Education Code, to discuss personnel matters, land purchases, negotiations and confidential records. Any action resulting from discussion in closed session must be taken during public session when the Board reconvenes.

TRUSTEE AREAS

The Lemoore Union Elementary School District has a Board of Trustees consisting of five Board members who represent specific geographic areas known as trustee areas. Every 10 years, after new population data is released by the U.S. Census, school districts must evaluate and adjust their trustee area boundaries, as necessary, to equalize the population of the trustee areas. This assures equal representation for the residents of each trustee area on the district governing board. (Note: this process is also required at every level of government—federal, state, county, city and special districts).

Redistricting of the trustee areas must comply with federal and state law and should be carried out in a manner that, to the extent possible, provides for compact and contiguous trustee areas, includes easily identifiable boundaries, and maintains and respects communities of interest.

Why does it matter?

Redistricting is a fundamental step in maintaining fair representation in our democratic system of government. It determines which geographic areas, neighborhoods and communities are grouped together for the purpose of electing school board trustees who represent the concerns and interests of residents in their trustee areas.

The Board of Trustees of the Lemoore Union Elementary School District will hold a Trustee Area Redistricting presentation on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., at the District Board Room, 1200 W. Cinnamon Drive, Lemoore, California 93245

For more information and to participate:

If you are interested in learning more about the process and would like to provide comments and input, we invite you to attend the board Redistricting presentation. If you can’t attend the presentation, information and additional opportunities for input will be posted on the District’s website (LUESD Redistricting Information). You can email comments and/or questions to Araceli Hernandez at ahernandez@myluesd.net or mail comments to the Lemoore Union Elementary School District, Attn: Redistricting, 100 Vine Street, Lemoore, CA 93245.

Please note that redistricting will not change existing school attendance boundaries.
