Hacienda La Puente Unified Sets Locations for 5 Community Public Meetings ​

 ​CITY OF INDUSTRY – Hacienda La Puente Unified has set locations for public meetings from Tuesday, Feb. 18 through Saturday, Feb. 22 to gather feedback on the conversion of Board of Education elections to a by-trustee area system. ​
 
Under the current at-large system, all registered voters may vote for any board candidate in District boundaries. Under the new system, residents will vote for a single candidate residing in their newly drawn trustee area.  ​
 
A public meeting will be held in each of five potential trustee areas to ensure community members have an opportunity to share their perspectives on the four trustee-area maps under consideration: ​
 
• Area 1: 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18 Fairgrove Academy Multi-Purpose Room, 15540 Fairgrove Ave., La Puente ​
 ​
• Area 2: 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19 Sparks Middle School Multi-Purpose Room, 15100 E Giordano St., La Puente ​
 ​
• Area 4: 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20 Wilson High School Media Center, 16455 Wedgeworth Drive, Hacienda Heights ​
 ​
• Area 5: 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 Palm Elementary Multi-Purpose Room, 14740 Palm Ave, Hacienda Heights ​
 ​
• Area 3: 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 22 District Office La Puente Conference Room, 15959 E. Gale Ave., City of Industry​
 ​
Translators for Mandarin and Spanish-speaking residents will be provided at each public meeting. ​
 ​
The Board of Education has held two public hearings since deciding to convert on Jan. 21. Initial input was gathered Jan. 27 and Feb. 3. Four conceptual maps of proposed trustee areas were published after the second hearing. The third public hearing is being held on Feb. 13 to discuss the public’s input on the maps. ​
 
The conversion, which is being guided by a demographer and legal team, ensures District compliance with the California Voting Rights Act (CRVA). The conceptual maps can be viewed on the Districts CRVA webpage along with background and FAQs about the process. ​
 
The Board of Trustees will review feedback and narrow selection of a final trusteearea map and election sequence at a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27. If necessary, a fourth public hearing on the final map and plan will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 12. ​
 
The completed plan will be presented to the Los Angeles County Committee on School District Organization. If approved, the first election under the new system would be November 2020. ​
