III. Special Issues
A. Consideration for Approval of the APS Redistricting Plan
(Discussionl Action)
President Maes informed that this agenda item is to decide the
board member voting district boundaries, not school attendance boundaries.
She requested that board members review the current board district map in
comparison to plans recommended by the APS Redistricting Committee,
plans M and F and plans requested by board members for additional review,
plans A and 1-1. She explained that plan 1-1 is a new plan created from
recommendations by Dr. Peercy.
Michael Sharp of Research & Polling, Inc. explained plan 1-1 as
taking plan I and ensuring that each board member is living in his or her
district. He also reviewed details about plans A, F, and M.
Board members discussed the following issues regarding this
Page 1 of 3
agenda item:
• Concern regarding notification of the suggestions for changes to plan I
• Clarification of the distribution of high schools in plan 1-1
• Clarification of which districts are west of the Rio Grande
• Recommendation that District 2 should have a larger negative
deviation
• Recommendation that growth be considered in deciding district
boundaries
• Support for the plans recommended by the APS Redistricting
Committee
• Support for plan M because the districts are laid out well and District 1
keeps historic communities together
• Support for using current map and molding into districts that conform
to requirement without rearranging the entire map
• Request to consider that the population of the district is evenly split
geographically by 1-25, not the Rio Grande
• Concern that plan M has completely relocated District 5 with a massive
re-shifting of all of the other districts
• Concern that in plan 1-1, traditional voting blocks are diluting voting
strength
• Support for representing the community not just the schools that
individual board members represent
• Concern that APS Redistricting Committee meetings were not well
attended by community participants
• Support for plan M over plan 1-1 because plan M has larger negative
deviations on the west side
• Concern that plan F does not allow for growth
• Support for plan 1-1 because it shows three board members
representing the west side
• Concern regarding the accuracy of predicting population growth
• Consideration of election timing
• Support for current board members because they communicate
harmoniously and board members should be allowed to have the
opportunity to run for re-election in their districts
Board members requested that Michael Sharp make changes to plan F
based on recommendations in the meeting to get Cibola High School in
District 2, allow board members to remain in their districts, increase the
negative deviation on the west side, and keep communities together as
much as possible. Mr. Sharp presented plan F-1 to board members with
changes made at the meeting.
Martin Esquivel motioned for approval of the APS redistricting plan F-l.
David Robbins seconded the motion. Board members unanimously approved
the APS redistricting plan F-1, except for Analee Maestas who was absent for
