All participants should act civil and appropriate for a public meeting. All meetings are recorded and a chat transcript is saved. The Committee respects the right of the public to comment on Committee matters.

  • 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 - add "Accommodation" to subject line - immediately after the meeting has been posted. Every effort will be made to accommodate your requests.


The members of the African American Parent Advisory Committee (AAPAC) will serve a two-year term. The membership of the Committee consists of parents of African American students in Fremont Unified School District who have an interest in services and programs that support closing the achievement gap for African American students. The Governing Board will select up to ten (10) parent/guardian members (preferably two from each of the five attendance areas) to serve on its AAPAC. There will also be representatives from each of the bargaining units and two Board members. Meetings will be held quarterly on dates to be announced. Committee Bylaws
