School Board Redistricting Steering Committee Schedules
District Public Hearings

A Series of Seven Public Hearings Will be Held

The School Board of Broward County, Florida has initiated the process for preparing a new School
Board district map based on the 2010 Census data. Redistricting is the process of redrawing the lines of
districts from which public officials are elected to balance the populations of the districts and ensure
residents have equal representation on the School Board.

The 2011-2013 redistricting project, currently underway, provides for extensive public participation
through a series of public hearings – one in each of the seven districts throughout the county – to inform
the public about the process and requirements for drawing new School Board district map alternatives and
receive input. The first public hearing for District 1 will take place on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at McArthur
High School Auditorium (6501 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood) beginning at 6 p.m.

Public participation is welcome at each of the District public hearings. All sessions will begin at 6
