    UPDATE (1/7/21): 

    Davis Demographics has worked on two additional maps – scenario #4 and scenario #5 based upon the request from the Board.  The current map along with scenarios #3 through #5 will be available on the website and interactive map. 

    Background

    The Folsom Cordova Unified School District (FCUSD) completed the process to transition from at-large to by-trustee area elections at the June 4, 2020 Board meeting, and after a months-long process that involved multiple Board meetings and community input. 

    Details chronicling the timeline and decision-making process for 2020 can be found on our website here. 

    Data from the United States census forms the basis of how trustee area boundaries will be drawn. Every ten years, after the U.S. Census data is released, school districts are required to evaluate whether their current trustee areas have approximately equal populations using the new census data. In June of 2020, the available census data was from 2010. With the newly released 2020 Census data, FCUSD has begun the process of evaluating each of its trustee areas for population balance. 

    By-Trustee structure

    FCUSD has five (5) trustee areas and with the change to by-trustee area elections, each of the trustees is required to reside within a defined trustee area and each trustee is elected only by voters in that trustee area. This type of voting is referred to as by-trustee area or by-district voting. 

    Note: Although voting is done by-trustee area, all elected Board members are elected to serve the entire District. 

    The difference in population between the smallest and largest trustee area must be less than 10%. If the total peak variation exceeds 10% then trustee area boundaries will need to be adjusted. This process is referred to as redistricting. Trustee areas must be made as equal in population as possible and practicable to provide equal access to political representation consistent with the one person, one vote constitutional principle. 

    2020 Census Data 

    Based on the assessment of 2020 Census data, the variance between the smallest and largest Board trustee areas is 22.3%; therefore, the Board's current trustee area boundaries must be adjusted through the redistricting process to balance the population.

    IMPORTANT: The redistricting process is governed by the U.S. Constitution, federal law, and California law. 

    ***Please note that redistricting applies to voting areas only and does not impact school attendance boundaries***

    FCUSD is working with professional demographers, Davis Demographics, to draft and revise maps for consideration by the public and the Trustees. Proposed “revised maps” will ensure appropriate population balance and will incorporate feedback received by the Trustees and the community. Members of the public will be able to provide input about boundaries, as well as possible revisions of maps.

    Trustee Area Maps

    Part of this multifaceted election system transition includes the public posting and review of draft Trustee Area maps as they are prepared and presented to the Board.  The following links are provided for members of the public to review the draft maps as they are developed:

    Existing Trustee Area Map

    Proposed Trustee Area Scenario #1

    Moves section of the north-east corner of Trustee Area 2 into Trustee Area 1.  Max variance after the change is 7.9% - Population change is 2,657 from Trustee Area 2 to Trustee Area 1. 

    Proposed Trustee Area Scenario #2

    Changes noted in scenario #1 plus move North-western tip of Trustee Area 5 into Trustee Area 4. Max variance after the change is 3.9% - Population change noted in scenario #1 plus change of 755 from Area 5 to 4.

    Approximate boundaries of the area impacted:

    • North Side – Capitales Drive
    • West Side - W. La Loma Drive
    • East Side – Bravado Drive
    • South Side -  Folsom Blvd

    Proposed Trustee Area Scenario #3

    Changes noted in scenario #2 plus reallocation of future community growth areas in Trustee Area 2 into Trustee Areas 3 and 5 with minimal current population impact.  This map is created to help balance projected growth between multiple trustee areas to help with the 2030 boundaries. Max variance after the change is 3.7% - Population change noted in scenario #2 plus change of 30 from Trustee Area 2 (64 people) to Trustee Area 3 (30 people) and Trustee Area 5 (34 people).

    Approximate boundaries of areas impacted:

    • From Trustee Area 2 to Trustee Area 5
    • North Side – White Rock Road
    • West Side – Sunrise Blvd.
    • East Side – Nike Road
    • South Side – Douglas Road (District Boundary)

    From Trustee Area 2 to Trustee Area 3

    • North Side – Folsom Blvd. / Highway 50
    • West Side – Nimbus Road / Aerojet Road / Prairie City Road
    • East Side – East Bidwell Street
    • South Side – White Rock Road

    Proposed Trustee Area Scenario #4 (added January 7, 2022)

    Expands Trustee Area 1 into Trustee Area 3 from Blue Ravine to Oak Avenue. 

    Trustee Area 3 expands into Trustee Area 2 south of 50 along White Rock and Placerville Road.  This change will split the Folsom Ranch subdivision and move the new school Mangini Ranch into Trustee Area 3.  (There may be a similar concern to the issue with splitting Empire Ranch, but Trustee Area 3 needed to take population from Trustee Area 2). 

    Expands Trustee Area 4 into Trustee Area 2 around Zinfandel Road. This change will move Cordova Lane Center into Trustee Area 4. 

    Proposed Trustee Area Scenario #5 (added January 7, 2022)

    Expands Trustee Area 1 into Trustee Area 3 including the areas noted in scenario #4 plus south from Sibley to Blue Ravine.  Trustee Area 3 expands into Trustee Area 2 to take over all of Rancho Cordova along highway 50.  Trustee Area 4 expands into Trustee Area 2 the same as scenario #4.  Note: scenario #5 leaves Folsom Ranch and Mangini with Trustee Area 2. 

    Interactive Trustee Area Map Viewer 

    Note: The maps are best viewed on a full screen (i.e., laptop or desktop computer). When viewing the maps under the layer tool, be sure to toggle the maps on and off by clicking once for on and then again for off. Having multiple maps selected will result in an overlapping display of the maps. You may also zoom out to see details of the maps, including the Schools tab which when zoomed out will display school site names.

    Next steps

    The Board of Trustees will ultimately adopt a resolution establishing revised trustee boundaries by February 28, 2022, the deadline established by law. After the adoption of a new map, it will be sent to the County Superintendent of Schools and the County Registrar of Voters. The County Registrars of Voters will then adjust precinct boundaries before the filing deadline for the November 2022 trustee election. 

    The proposed timeline, below, includes multiple Board meetings and dedicated time for community input to meet statutory deadlines for map adjustments following the release of the 2020 Census Data. These deadlines and the procedures outlined below are subject to change.

    Trustees, Trustee areas, and terms of office:

    • Area 1: Josh Hoover (2022)
    • Area 2: Tim Hooey (2024)
    • Area 3: David Reid (2022)
    • Area 4: Chris Clark (2024)
    • Area 5: Ed Short (2022)
