CA Voting Rights Act

An informational phone call has been scheduled next week with National Demographics Corporation and Lapkoff & Gobalet Demographic Research, Inc.; two well recognized vendors with experience in providing services to jurisdictions and demographics analysis.

Following the informational phone calls we will reach out to Superintendents to seek interest in participating in an interview session with each of these vendors.

As suggested during last month's Superintendent's Day, preliminary thoughts around collaboration might take form as follows:

  • Novato Unified School District
  • San Rafael City Schools and Dixie School District
  • Tamalpais Union High School District and all elementary feeder districts
  • Shoreline Unified School District already has elections by area
  • Lincoln School District, Union Joint School District, and Laguna Joint School District are too small for consideration
