The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday morning to approve a final redistricting map for the Los Angeles Unified School District's trustees.
The vote was 9-2, with Bernard Parks and Jan Perry against.
The final map differs from the one recommended by the LAUSD Redistricting Commission in significant ways, including its handling of the boundaries for LAUSD District 5, currently held by Bennett Kayser.
According to Kayser's chief of staff Sara Bradshaw, the map brings back into District 5, along with the area around
Echo Park's Elysian Heights area, however remains in District 2, along with Garfield High School, which Kayser had also coveted.
At the District's western edge, changes were also made to the map recommended by the LAUSD Redistricting Commission. John Marshall High School and much of Los Feliz out to Western Avenue is again included.
The recommended map had shifted Marshall into District 4. Critics said that cut it off from "feeder" elementary and junior-high schools located in District 5.
