The School Board serves as the governing body of the School District of Fremont. The Board has the dual responsibility for implementing statutory requirements pertaining to public education and for meeting the desires of residents. While the Board has an obligation to determine and assess citizen desires, it is understood that when the voters elect delegates to represent them in the conduct of specified educational programs, they, at the same time, are endowed with the authority to exercise their best judgment in determining policies, making decisions, and approving procedures for carrying out the responsibility.

Responsible Governance

The board, with participation by the community, will envision the future of the school district's educational program and formulate goals, define outcomes and set the course for the school district. This will be done within the context of racial, ethnic and religious diversity and with a commitment to education excellence and equity for all students.

Creating Conditions for Student and Staff Success

To achieve the vision, the board will establish a structure which reflects local circumstances and creates an environment designed to ensure all students the opportunity to attain their maximum potential through a sound organizational framework. This includes employing a superintendent, developing and approving policies, formulating budgets, setting high instructional and learning goals for staff and students, and nurturing a climate conducive to continuous improvement.

High Expectations for Student Learning

The board will continuously articulate the belief that all students can learn and that each student’s learning can improve regardless of existing circumstances or resources. The board will act as leaders of a vision of shared learning that is supported by individual schools and the community.

Accountability for Student Learning

The board's accountability for student learning will include adopting a system of continuous assessment of all conditions affecting education, including assessments for measuring staff and student progress towards goals. The public will be kept informed about programs and progress. Staff and board training will be provided to ensure continuous improvement of student achievement.

Community Engagement

The board will serve as education's key advocate on behalf of students and their schools. The board will work to advance the community's vision for its schools, pursue the district's goals, encourage progress and energize systemic change and ensure that students are treated as whole persons in a diversified society. 


Fremont Community Schools Public Participation at School Board Meetings

The Fremont Community Schools Board of School Trustees recognizes the value of public comment on educational issues and the importance of involving members of the public in its meetings. The Board of School Trustees encourages such comment and welcomes all patrons to attend and participate in school board meetings. To allow for fair and orderly expression of such comment, the Board of School Trustees provides a time at the beginning of each meeting during which visitors may make presentations (COMMUNICATIONS TO THE BOARD). Such presentations should be scheduled in advance at the Office of the Superintendent. Specific concerns should be addressed at the appropriate level within each school building prior to scheduling a presentation for the Board. Patrons will be asked to pre-register their desire to discuss an agenda item prior to the start of the meeting. To address the Board, you must be either a resident or employee of the School District or their designee. If you wish to address a particular agenda item, for which you have pre-registered, you may do so after the Board has discussed it and before Board action. Any representative of a firm eligible to bid on materials or services solicited by the Board of School Trustees will likewise be entitled to express an opinion. After identifying yourself, please make your comments as brief as the subject requires. Though your comments are welcome, the Board President will not allow inappropriate, personally directed, abusive, obscene, unwarranted or irrelevant remarks to interfere with the Board’s ability to conduct it business. It is the intent of the Board to allow for an orderly expression of information pertinent to education concerns in the school community.
