11-22-2011 Organization of the Board and Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #46


Title
School Board Member District Redistricting

Discussion

School Board member district boundaries are typically changed every 10 years following the U.S. census to balance the population in each district.  Florida Statute 1001.36 limits this change to odd-numbered years.

Based on the 2010 U.S. census, the average population for each School Board member district should be 108,675.  The current School Board member districts vary from 128,556 (+18.29%) to 92,913 (-14.50%). 

Proposed boundary changes, developed by the Facilities Planning staff and revised by the Supervisor of Elections to reduce the number of existing precincts affected, are attached.  The proposed new School Board member districts reduce the variance from the average population to between (+)2.5% and (-)1.9%.
