South San Francisco Unified School District Board of Trustees Approves New Map for District Elections 

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The South San Francisco Unified School District (SSFUSD) board of trustees has approved a new map for district elections that begin in 2020.

The map, which encompasses five districts with a total population of 77,916 individuals, was approved by the school board at its November 14 meeting.

It is the culmination of a two-year process to move the selection of school board members from a citywide vote to local, district elections.

“Our trustees have tried to be as equitable and transparent as possible” said SSFUSD Superintendent Dr. Shawnterra Moore. “Each of the five districts contains approximately the same number of residents as the others.”

District A occupies the northwest section of South San Francisco and extends east from Skyline Boulevard into a portion of the Serra Highlands neighborhood and north to Serramonte Boulevard. 

District B sits below District A and also extends east from Skyline Boulevard to encompass the Westborough neighborhood, ending at the 280 freeway. 

District C’s western border adjoins both Districts A and B and extends from the Winston Manor neighborhood in the north to the Brentwood neighborhood in the south. 

District D sits astride Orange Avenue and encompasses the Sunshine Gardens and Sign Hill neighborhoods, ending north of Hillside Boulevard.

District E stretches across the neighborhoods of Orange Park, Lindenville, and Downtown to Paradise Valley in the north and ends all the way at the bay. 

Of the 77,916 residents living within the five districts, 55,827 are of voting age, and 39,364 are registered voters, according to figures from the November 2016 election.

“The selected map blended the best elements of two community-submitted maps,” SSFUSD Board President John Baker said. “I think the process demonstrated that our community members understand our neighborhoods and school communities better than any demographer possibly could.”

A total of four maps were eligible for the school board’s consideration. 

Two were submitted by residents, and two were proposed by the National Demographics Corporation, which SSFUSD hired to facilitate the redistricting process.

The new voting districts will be in effect for the November 2020 elections, once the final map is approved.

Re-Districting in the News

Please read Daily Journal Article to see the latest news regarding the SSFUSD re-districting.

Over several months, members of the public were given the opportunity to provide input on the areas the Trustees will represent. Residents, using a map of the school district area, were able to design the five district areas within certain parameters (i.e. the population could not vary by more than 1,558 between the largest and smallest areas). SSFUSD received two maps (map #3 and map #4) which met the criteria. These maps, along with the two proposed by the company handling the transition (map #1 and map #2), will be discussed at the fourth and potentially final Public Hearing during the October 10 Board meeting.

The following maps are being proposed and discussed at the meeting:
