Draft maps for Elk Grove Unified School District Trustee Areas presented

During the Tuesday, December 14 meeting of the Elk Grove Unified School District Board of Trustees, three draft maps were unveiled as part of the decennial redistricting.

According to the information presented by representatives from National Demographics Corp, whose services were retained to facilitate the process, the district population has grown by about 50,000 but not evenly distributed. Area 4 experienced the lowest growth by adding 2,000 people, while Areas 6 added 16,000

The EGUSD has seven districts. Although the maps intend to balance population and racial composition, they can also factor into future student growth. Areas 6 and 7 are expected to experience the most growth over the next ten years.

Each district should have about 51,700 residents. 

In draft map 1, there are six minority-majority districts, with Area 7 having a slight white-majority while map 2 has two white-majority districts, Areas 5 and 7. Draft map 3 has no white-majority districts. 

See the video below for the three draft maps. The image posted above displays the redistricting process timeline.   

One change for the district in 2022 will be the election of Trustees on a by-district basis. In this election cycle, Areas 2,4 and 5 will be on the ballot, and the other four in 2024.
