This week the OUSD Board may vote to take a position (for or against) or vote to take no action ( no position) on the proposed transfer.
Two back-to-back Public Hearings on the proposed transfer will be held by the 11 member Orange County Committee on School District Organization on Tuesday May 17th in both Orange Unified and Tustin Unified.
The first hearing will be at the OUSD Board Room at 6:00pm, followed by the seconded hearing at the Tustin Unified Board Room at 8:00 pm. The Chief Petitioners, and representatives from both school districts will be given 15 minutes each for comments during both public hearings.
Those comments will be followed by a 30 minute public comment period and then a five minute rebuttal period for the petitioners and each school district at both public hearings.
The Orange County Committee on School District Organization must vote on nine separate criteria concerning the proposed transfer (each criteria is a single vote). Those criteria range in community identity to financial considerations (see link below) . Criteria 8 specifically states that the transfer must be for reasons other than an increase in property values.
