    What is Redistricting?

    Redistricting is the process of adjusting district lines every 10 years after the release of the U.S. Census.

    Why is Redistricting important?

    Redistricting determines which communities will be grouped together and represented by the Alameda County Board of Education trustee elected for that area.

    What Redistricting Principles are used during this process?

    •  Relatively equal size – population
    •  Contiguous – districts should not hop/jump
    •  Keep districts compact – appearance/function
    •  Maintain “communities of interest”- A community of interest includes ethnic and language minorities and other groups
    •  Follow city/county/local government lines

    How did the public in Alameda County participate in this process?
