Redistricting

   

Introduction

Section 1001.36, Florida Statutes, requires the School Board to make changes "deemed necessary in the boundaries of any district school board member residence area at a meeting of the school board in odd-numbered years" and that no boundary change that "would affect the residence qualifications of any incumbent member shall disqualify such incumbent member during the term for which he or she is elected." In addition, on November 18, 1994, Federal District Court Judge Lenore C. Nesbitt entered an Order approving the nine single member districts for the School Board mandating that the School Board reapportion its Board member residence areas "after each decennial census."

Accordingly, the School Board is legally required to review, formulate and approve a redistricting plan and adopt a resolution setting forth the boundaries for that plan prior to the end of 2011. The 2010 United States Decennial Census indicated an increase in population of Miami-Dade County, Florida, over the last ten years by approximately 10.8%.

Following its review, The School Board redrew the nine residence area boundaries to achieve board member residence areas that are reflective of the population changes that have occurred since the 2000 Census. The new boundaries were approved at the November 22, 2011 School Board meeting.

The proposed School Board member district map does not impact school attendance zones. It does not impact where your child attends. It only impacts which school board member district you may vote in. After several public meetings, the School Board approved a revised school board member district map. You can view the map and additional information here below.
