What is it?


  • The Rialto Unified School District (RUSD) is moving from At-Large elections to By-Trustee Area elections for its Board of Trustees in 2022. The goal of the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) is to ensure minorities and other members of protected classes can elect candidates of their choice or influence the outcome of elections. To achieve this goal, the CVRA favors By-Trustee Area elections, which is where only voters residing within each trustee area will elect a trustee who also must reside within the trustee area. If you wish to speak on this topic, you are welcomed to attend the next RUSD Board of Education School Board Meeting. You may also provide input through email at: info@rialtousd.org If you have questions, please call RUSD Communication/Media Services at (909) 820-7700, ext. 2126 or 2127.
