School board approves updated member district map in accordance with Kansas statute

Maize USD 266 School Board Member District MapThe Maize Board of Education on Feb. 13 approved updated boundaries for its three board member districts, which are used for board member elections and are not tied to school attendance boundaries for students.

Kansas law requires the resident population of board member districts to each be within 5 percent of the mean population of the entire district, a balance that must be reexamined with every census. With the help of demographic firm RSP and Associates, board members selected the option that provides the most balance between the three districts in terms of population distribution. The new map redistributes about 2,300 people between all three districts to reach a variance of no more than 2.7 percent between all districts.
