Special districts are quite clearly one of the least known aspects of local government, not only in California, but nationally. These agencies carry out a variety of tasksâ€”cemeteries, airports, hospitals, water, park and recreation, you name it; everything else, if you will, that is not done specifically by counties, cities, or school districts. And, in this writing assignment, each of you has been assigned a special district in California to write about.
Next to your name is the California special district that you have been assigned. And, below your name is the web-link to that special district. As you explore the provided web-sites, please discuss some things:
- What is it that your assigned special district does? Specifically, what services do they provide?
- How are they governed? Specifically, are they elected or appointed? If they are elected, is it by districts or at-large? And, if they are appointed, who appoints them?
- Finally, what is currently happening in your assigned special district? What updates do they have?
As usual, a minimum of 250 words are required, and make sure to post the web-link of your assigned special district. This is due Sunday, May 7th, by 8:59PM. Scoring rubric: 250 words (up to 12.5 points); assigned special district source web-linked (up to 12. 5 points. Total: 25 points
