2020 IUSD School Board Candidates: Candidate Statements

In 2018, the IUSD School Board changed from an “at large” representation model to the “trustee area” model, utilizing district voting for the first time. The 2020 IUSD School Board elections will be the second districted election.

This year, voters will be choosing representatives for Trustee Areas 3 and 5. Since Lauren Brooks’ seat is uncontested, she will serve another four years as Area 1’s IUSD Board Member. Candidates must reside in the area they represent. However, the schools to which they are designated “liaison” lie outside their area. This ensures fair representation of not just their voting area residents, but also ensures they stay connected to other areas within Irvine.

Here are the candidates who have filed and completed registration with the OC Registrars office:

Trustee Area 1:

Lauren Brooks – Incumbent


Trustee Area 3:


Trustee Area 5:
