PUSD Redistricting Commission Announces 3 Public Hearings

Coming together as a community for Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre

The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) and the PUSD Redistricting Commission have scheduled virtual public hearings in the coming weeks to gather community input on redrawing school board members’ district boundaries.

Every 10 years, PUSD Board of Education district boundaries are re-drawn to account for population changes. PUSD is seeking input for the 2021-2022 redistricting effort that could impact future board member elections.

Redistricting is a process by which a school district ensures the population balance of each district; designed for Board of Education trustee elections. It’s important to note that redistricting maps will not adjust school attendance boundaries and only affects the Board of Education areas for voters to have equal representation.

PUSD’s seven-member redistricting commission has scheduled three virtual public hearings to review two mapping scenarios and population changes at the following dates and times.

• Public Hearing #1 – January 12, 2022, 6:00 PM, ZOOM
• Public Hearing #2 – January 15, 2022, 10:00 AM, ZOOM
• Public Hearing #3 – January 18, 2022, 6:00 PM, ZOOM

Public input is now open and will end on January 18, 2022.

If you are unable to attend the public hearings, you can view the proposed redistricting mapping scenarios and provide the redistricting commission with your input, opinions, and or questions through the Pubic Feedback Form found here: https://www.pusd.us/redistricting. The three public hearings will be available in English and Spanish and all PUSD families and stakeholders are welcome to attend.
