Modesto City Schools reverses vote, gives Latino area 2017 seat

After community outrage greeted a later election for majority Latino neighborhoods in newly drawn trustee area 7, the Modesto City Schools Board voted unanimously May 11 to have that area's election happen this year. The four seats to be elected in November will represent areas 1, 3, 5, and 7. Three at-large trustees will remain until at least 2019, when seats 2, 4, and 6 will be elected.
