Trustee Area Elections

The LESD Board of Education has made the transition from at-large elections to trustee area elections, in which board candidates in each area will be elected only by voters who reside in that specific trustee area. Although trustees are elected by registered voters who reside in a particular trustee area, all trustees represent all students and families in the entire Lawndale Elementary School District community.

In this transition, the district initiated the creation of election areas that would be roughly equal in population and in compliance with state law, the Federal Voting Rights Act, and the United States Constitution. Using data from the 2010 Census, the district’s consultant, National Demographics Corporation, created four conceptual trustee area scenarios that divided the district into five new voting areas.

The process included hosting a series of public forums to collect community input regarding the four proposed area maps and allowing community members to view the four conceptual trustee area scenarios and provide comments. Following community input, the Board of Education chose the final map (see below) at its meeting of October 18, 2016. 

Subsequently, the Wiseburn Unified School District petitioned the Los Angeles County Office of Education to make the blocks north of Rosecrans and west of Inglewood Avenue a part of the Wiseburn territory. Lawndale Elementary School District appealed to the State Board of Education on September 10, 2020 to maintain the choice blocks. The State Board of Education sided with Wiseburn Unified School District.

In 2020, the United States Census Bureau collected new census data, from which updated maps will be developed.
