Census and Redistricting 2022

  • School boards, like EPISD, with single-member district positions must look at local census data to determine if district boundaries need to be revised. Texas Education Code sections 11.052 and 11.053 require school districts to redivide single-member districts if the most populous single-member district exceeds the population of the least populous district by more than 10%. State law requires school districts to complete this task 90 days before the next scheduled election:

    Not later than the 90th day before the date of the first regular school board election at which trustees may officially recognize and act on the last preceding federal census, the board shall redivide the district into the appropriate number of trustee districts if the census data indicates that the population of the most populous district exceeds the population of the least populous district by more than 10 percent. Redivision of the district shall be in the manner provided for division of the district under Subsection (f). Texas Education Code 11.052 (i).

    It should be noted that single-member districts are not synonymous with school attendance zones, but rather are completely different.
