Board of Education Trustee Area Information

In 2018, after an extensive three month process, the IUSD Board of Education unanimously voted to transition to a By-Trustee Area election method; whereby candidates for the Board must reside within a specific geographic subarea of the District called a "trustee area" and candidates are elected only by the voters of that trustee area.   

It is important to note, this process has no effect on school district or student attendance boundaries.   

The IUSD Governing Board members are elected by citizens of their respective trustee areas, however, the Governing Board operates as a unified Board, representing and supporting the interest of all Irvine communities, residents, students and staff.
