Every 10 years following the U.S. Census, the process of redrawing school board member district lines occurs. The School Board is legally required to review, formulate and approve a reapportionment plan and to adopt a resolution setting forth the boundaries for that plan prior to the end of 2021. Following its review of the 2020 Census data, the School Board must redraw the seven residence area boundaries to achieve school  board member residence areas that are reflective of the population changes that have occurred since the 2010 Census and approve the new boundaries at an upcoming school board meeting. 


Sept. 28, the 2021 Orange County School Board Reapportionment Advisory Committee, made up of 17 members, was created. The committee is responsible for reviewing the decennial census data and then proposing and analyzing maps reflecting various possibilities for adjustments to the School Board for their consideration and adoption. The proposed school board district map will not impact school attendance zones but rather which board member represents an area. 


On Wednesday, Oct. 6, members of the RAC met and selected their Chair and Vice Chair. Former OCPS General Counsel, Diego “Woody” Rodriguez was selected as the Chair and former Orange County School Board Member, Joie Cadle was selected as the Vice Chair.
