DR. MCGRATH'S COMMUNICATION TO THE STAFF AND COMMUNITY ON OCTOBER 28, 2022
On Thursday, October 27th some East Corte Madera residents submitted a territory transfer petition to the County Superintendent. This petition would redraw the boundary lines for a large section of East Corte Madera. This would redistrict these neighborhoods from Reed Union School District to Larkspur Corte Madera School District. Mary Jane Burke with the Marin County Office of Education will forward the territory transfer petition to the elections office. Signatures need to be validated in 30 days. If you signed the petition understanding that this redraws the line for all families, then we respect your opinion as a citizen of East Corte Madera. I have heard from a number of residents that they signed the petition based on misunderstanding. If that is the case for you, you should contact Mary Jane Burke at email@example.com and Terena Mares at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in removing your name from the petition. If 25% of the signatures from the impacted territory are valid, the redistricting process will continue. One of the first steps will be public hearings that will take place in both school districts.
