AB 361 SUMMARY

  • Brown Act flexibility extended by AB 361.
  • Provides flexibility (but does not require) to meet remotely or virtually through January 1, 2024.
  • AB 361 provides school district’s Committees with the ability to meet remotely during proclaimed gubernatorial state of emergency that remains active.
  • A real time online destination like a publicly accessible Google Meet stream - video conference (live streaming) is required for each remote meeting.
  • AB 361 requires that public comment be made during the meeting. Comment can include video conference or internet-based service options. This does not prohibit communication (feedback) from being sent in writing advance of the meeting.
  • All votes must be made by rollcall - it is suggested to use the chat feature and each voting member type Y, N or Abstain during the vote to record name and vote.
  • Update 2/9/22: Board of Education now reaffirms remote meeting(s) for ALL Committees. No Committee level votes are needed or no Special Meetings beyond 30 days.
  • If Google Meet live stream and/or public comment time is disrupted, the Committee cannot take any further action on any agenda until the technical issue is resolved.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and upon request, individuals who require appropriate alternative modification of the agenda or accommodations in order to observe or participate in Committee meetings are invited to contact fusdweb@fusdk12.net - add "Accommodation" to subject line - immediately after the meeting has been posted. Every effort will be made to accommodate your requests.

About District Equity Team (EQUITY)

equity ideaFremont Unified School District is committed to ensuring academic success for every student. Our district Goal is to establish partnerships with our families and community to increase academic success for all students.

As part of the Fremont’s ongoing strategic improvement efforts, the district has formed a District Equity Team to help develop an equity plan focused on closing achievement and opportunity gaps for students. Like many districts across the region, state, and nation, Fremont Unified sees evidence of achievement and opportunity gaps in its data.

  • Achievement gaps refer to any significant, persistent disparities in academic performance between groups of students, based on income level, race, or program participation.
  • Opportunity gaps refer to gaps in access to resources, programs..

The District Equity Team consists of district staff, community representatives, parents and students. Team members have been selected based upon geographic location and representation of the diverse population of the City of Fremont. The District Equity Team reviews and discusses data, prioritizes action steps, and advises on the development of the district’s equity plan. Team members have committed to a two-year term.
