1992 OUSD Recall Attempt

In addition to the 2024 recall, and 2001 OUSD successful recall, OUSD was the scene in 1992 of a recall attempt that never reached the ballot.

The recall proponents “conceded that they had fallen about 5,000 signatures short of the required 13,180, which is equal to the 15% of registered voters needed to call a recall election.”

Drawing a similar tone to the 2024 recall: “The ouster effort was prompted by the demotion of three popular school principals and capped a year of tension and turmoil, including the May dismissal of the district superintendent,” reported the LA Times.
