(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.
