The Board adopted Resolution #48-18/19, declaring its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area Board elections, where each Board member must reside within the designated trustee area boundary, and is elected only by the voters in that trustee area. Under the by-trustee area system, voters would only vote for one seat on the school board.

Pursuant to Education Code section 35012, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s Board of Education is currently elected under an at-large election system, where trustees are elected by voters of the entire District.  Trustees are elected in even-numbered years and serve staggered, four-year terms, such that the next election for two trustee seats is scheduled for November 2020, with the remaining trustee seats scheduled for election in November 2022.
