California State Commission on School Districts records


California governor Earl Warren (1943-1953) established the Reconstruction and Reemployment Commission. The Commission drafted the Optional Reorganization Act in 1945 to address school district reorganization. The Act created the State Commission on School Districts to survey school district reorganization. The Commission surveyed every county in California and made recommendations to the State Board of Education. In 1949 the State Commission on School Districts was disbanded and the State Board of Education assumed responsibility for the reorganization process.


Collection is open for research. Some restrictions may apply.
