Input Sought on Redistricting

The Long Beach Unified School District is seeking community input for the 2021 redistricting effort that will impact the district’s Board of Education area boundaries in the June 7, 2022 primary elections.

To participate, please complete the Communities of Interest Survey available in English, Español and Khmer.

Redistricting is the process by which a school district ensures population balance in each of its Board of Education areas. Board areas must be made as equal in population as possible and practicable so that communities have equal access to political representation. 

LBUSD has five board member areas. After every Census, school districts are required to:

  1. Review the population data to determine if their board areas are still within allowable variance. 
  2. Make any necessary adjustments to the areas to ensure population balance.

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