Shifting from "at large" elections to "trustee-area" elections

We currently have an at-large election system, where voters of the entire District elect all members of the School Board. “By-district” elections divide the jurisdiction into geographic districts. Voters in each district or trustee area choose their representative, who must also live in that district or trustee area.
