Government municipalities across California, including the City of Chico, are transitioning to a new election system. Chico Unified School District Board of Education members are currently elected through an “at-large” election system, which means candidates for the Board of Education can reside anywhere in Chico Unified’s area of service and are elected by all registered voters that live within the Chico Unified School District boundaries.
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.
