School Board Adopts Resolution for New School Board Redistricting Maps
At the February 5, 2013 School Board meeting, the School Board adopted revised School Board member district boundaries/maps. The new map balances the population within each of the seven single-member districts. Redistricting of School Board Member Voting Districts DOES NOT impact student attendance boundaries or transportation.
The district boundaries are based on Guiding Principles, as well as citizen input. On October 18, 2011, The School Board of Broward County, Florida approved a School Board appointed 19-member Redistricting Steering Committee, timeline and Guiding Principles to be utilized in the analysis, review and development of proposed School Board member district plans based on the 2010 Census data.
Public hearings, in each of the School Board member’s districts, were held from February 2012 to July 2012 and were aimed at informing and requesting citizen input on the redistricting process and suggested map changes. Committee deliberations and presentations of recommendations to the School Board were conducted in a public forum from August 2012 through December 2012.
The School Board extended their appreciation for the time and commitment by the Redistricting Steering Committee Chair Michael Rajner, Redistricting Steering Committee members, and the Broward community for their hard work enabling this inclusive and transparent process.
