Curriculum & Instruction Advisory Committee

Parent Volunteers Needed

Fremont Unified School District is seeking members for its Curriculum and Instruction Advisory Committee. Members give input on potential changes to the district’s curriculum or instructional practices. This may include things like reviewing proposed curriculum adoptions before they are recommended to the Board or offering input about programmatic changes such as the transition to Middle Schools. The committee may also oversee special task forces as commissioned by the Board of Trustees on specific topics of interest to the community.

Interested parents should fill out an application. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

(C&I Committee)

About the Committee

In order to guide the District on implementation of California State Standards and the resulting shifts in classroom instruction, FUSD staff recommended to the Board of Trustees that we form a Curriculum & Instruction Committee.

The C&I Committee’s responsibility is to advise and give input into the District’s Curriculum & Instruction planning, by reviewing/recommending curriculum and materials that are high quality and equitable and advising in relevant instructional matters. The Committee will also oversee special task forces as commissioned by the Board of Trustees on specific topics of interest to the community. The members of the Committee will serve a two-year term.
