EL MONTE – The El Monte Union High School District Board of Trustees will move forward three draft trustee area maps for further consideration as the District transitions from at-large elections to trustee-area elections. The Board plans to select a final map for adoption at its meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

Following comments during the Jan. 5 public hearing, as well as feedback taken during several community open houses and previous public hearings, the Board narrowed the number of draft maps for consideration following consensus to eliminate the NDC Yellow, NDC Green and NDC Green 2 maps and requested changes to NDC Green map to create a new NDC Green 3 Map.

The Board of Trustees will adopt a final map from the following three drafts: NDC Orange Map, NDC Yellow 2 Map, and a new NDC Green 3 which is being developed by professional demographers based on comments received from the Board during the recent public hearing.

The new draft map will be posted at EMUHSD high schools and District Office and displayed in the Board room prior to the next scheduled public hearing. The community is encouraged to review the remaining maps and continue submitting feedback online at the EMUHSD District Formation Process Website.

The Board of Trustees expects to select a final map during a public hearing at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2 in the District Office Board Room, 3537 Johnson Ave., El Monte. The public is invited to attend in-person or virtually. Comments from the public will be received by the Board.

The final approved map is expected to be presented to the Los Angeles County Committee on School District Organization. The Committee will hold two public hearings (dates to be determined) for review and approval of EMUHSD’s final trustee area map and election sequence.
