New System of Electing Board Members

Transition to a New System of Electing Governing Board Members

English | español | 中文

Dear Parents and Community Members:

I am writing to encourage your participation in an important process led by the Fremont Unified School District Governing Board.

Starting on September 11, 2019, the District initiated the process of transitioning the method by which Governing Board members are elected.  Under the current “at-large” system, all registered voters in the District’s boundaries can vote for candidates for Board member seats.  Under the new proposed system, candidates will be elected by “trustee areas.”  This means only voters within a given trustee area can vote for candidates who reside within that same area.  The intent of this proposed system is to offer greater opportunities for Board representation for candidates that might not otherwise be elected under an at-large system.

 

Sincerely,

Kim Wallace, Ed.D
Superintendent
