    CUSD Logo California Public Records Act Requests


    The Carmel Unified School District is committed to transparency and providing easy access to public records pursuant to the California Public Records Act (CPRA). The California Public Records Act gives the public the right to access records created and maintained by public agencies in the course of their normal business.

    We have created a webpage on our website that outlines the CPRA and asks anyone seeking a public record to complete an online form in order to better manage the process.

    Public Hearing to Review Draft Maps and  Provide Input Regarding the Establishment of Trustee Areas and Elections By-Trustee Areas

    Carmel Middle School Library - 4380 Carmel Valley Rd, Carmel, CA 93923


    The District has initiated the process of establishing trustee areas and changing the method of electing members of the Board, to ensure full compliance with the California Voting Rights Act of 2001 (CVRA). Under Elections Code section 10010, prior to crafting any proposed trustee area maps the Board is required to conduct “at least two public hearings over a period of no more than 30 days, at which the public is invited to provide input regarding the composition of the districts.” These public hearings took place on June 8, 2022 and June 22, 2022. At the June 22, 2022 meeting, the Board communicated criteria to the demographer to be used in the creation of draft maps.

    After the most recent public hearing, the District’s demographer created draft maps, which were made available to the public at least seven (7) days prior to this meeting.

    This is the time and place designated for the third public hearing, and the first of two after the creation of draft maps, for members of the public to have the opportunity to provide input regarding the draft maps and the proposed sequence of elections.

    During the public hearing the Board will discuss the draft maps, and decide whether to narrow down the number of maps for consideration, and/or creation of additional draft maps.
