CITY OF INDUSTRY – Hacienda La Puente Unified School District will hold two community input meetings on Thursday, Jan. 6 and Tuesday, Jan. 18 to discuss the 2020 Census Evaluation and Trustee Area Boundary Adjustments. Two proposed maps have been shared with the community on our District website and will be addressed through a series of in-person and virtual community meetings, public hearings and Board meetings.
District administration and the demographers will discuss the drafted scenarios during the community meetings from 6 to 7 p.m. on Jan. 6 and Jan. 18 at the District Office, La Puente Conference Room, 15959 Gale Ave., City of Industry. The public is encouraged to submit comments to District Administration, which will be presented to the Board for their consideration. To submit a comment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In accordance with California Education Code, following every 10-year census, each school district must evaluate the total population variances between its trustee areas and revise its boundary maps accordingly.
