The MISD Citizen’s Redistricting Committee presented a final recommended map to the School Board at last Tuesday’s regular Work Study Session. The map included a few small changes from the original maps created by the committee to address input received in three public hearings. This redistricting is strictly for voting districts and does not affect school attendance zones.
Redistricting of voting districts is required every 10 years after the Census for political bodies from school districts to cities, the state and congressional districts. The redistricting is necessary to even-out districts which may have become uneven in population due to growth. The MISD has seven Trustees, five of which are elected from geographic districts and two which are elected at large.
The School Board will vote on the new boundaries next Tuesday night, Sept. 27, at its regular board meeting beginning at 7 p.m. in the MISD Administration Building at One Duvall Street.
