Welcome to the Chico Unified Board of Education Page

Button to "Learn More About the CA Voting Rights Act & Trustee Area Voting" 
The Governing Board consists of five members elected during statewide primary or general elections. Board Members serve a term of four years in office. The Board operates under the authority of the California Constitution, State Legislature, California Education Code and the California State Board of Education. The trustees are responsible for oversight, policy and adopting the annual Chico Unified School District Local Control and Accountability Plan which serves as the foundation for district-wide goals and priorities.
The Board of Education welcomes the opportunity to connect with parent, teachers and staff. 
Over recent months, in light of concerns regarding the existing at-large election system for the City Council of Chico, and based on in-depth information provided by the California School Boards Association (CSBA), and other sources, Chico Unified School District has been exploring a move to “trustee area” elections.
