Trustee Area Elections
Burbank Unified School District (Burbank USD), like hundreds of cities and school districts across the state, is making a change in how voters elect its Board of Education. Beginning in 2024, voters will vote for one Board Member who lives in their trustee area. This will replace the current system of at-large citywide elections in which voters have the ability to vote for all Board Members.
We need your help to make this change and draw new Board of Education trustee election areas!
One of our primary goals when drawing Burbank USD districts is to draw lines that respect neighborhoods, history, and geographical elements. So we want to know: What do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood?
- This process will not affect where any students attend school. This change only impacts how Board members are elected.
- While Board members will be elected by their districts, they will still serve and focus on the entire district.
Scheduled Final Hearing:
At its regular May 4th meeting, the Board is scheduled to select its preferred map and election sequence. Please review the Draft Maps on this page and share your thoughts prior to or at the May 4th public hearing.
