New school director boundaries drawn up

The Sunnyside School Board took action last night and set new boundaries for director districts.

An RCW requires school boards in the state to review and change the boundaries of board member districts to provide equal representation according to the population.

Data compiled from the 2010 census illustrates a population inbalance in director districts so new boundaries were selected.

District 1 is directed by Rocky Simmons. His boundaries were redirected so he now represents 4,888 citizens in the Sunnyside School District.

District 1 runs through the middle of north Sunnyside and extends north into the county.

District 2, which is directed by Michelle Perry, now has 4,805 citizens represented. He district covers the northeast section of Sunnyside and the county, and continues south along the eastern lines of the city.

District 3 is directed by Lorenzo Garza and he now represents 4,883 citizens. His district covers Sunnyside south of Edison Avenue and west of Sixth Street.

District 4 is directed by Steven Carpenter and now represents 4,882 citizens. His district covers all areas west of the Sunnyside city limits and north into the county.

District 5 is directed by Miguel Puente and he represents 4,884 citizens. His district represents Sunnyside south of Edison Avenue, but east of Sixth Street. His area also covers parts of rural Sunnyside south of the city.
