LAUSD's Redistricting Commission will hold its last special meeting tonight to vote on its final report on new school board boundaries.

The final recommended map was overwhelmingly approved by a 14-1 vote last Thursday, but as of 11:30 a.m. Wednesday it was still not posted on the city's website for the public. The public will have another chance to weigh in on the redistricting process at tonight's meeting.

If the 15-volunteer commission approves the final report, it will be sent onward along with the map, to L.A. City Council March 1. The council will have through July 1 to come up with final school board boundaries.

Redistricting must happen at least once every 10 years to account for shifts in population; the data is drawn off the U.S. Census.

Tonight's meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at LAUSD Headquarters Downtown.
