Citizens Advisory Committee on Enrollment

The purpose of the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is to study the enrollment needs of FUHSD and all its aspects, and to provide recommendations to the FUHSD Board of Trustees so it can make decisions regarding enrollment that benefit the Fremont Union High School District as a whole. The FUHSD Superintendent created a Superintendent's ad hoc Citizens Advisory Committee on Enrollment in Spring 2016. This committee meets independently from the Board of Trustees and has an independent facilitator.

Update on reconvening the CAC - Aug. 2022

In 2016, the FUHSD Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) was established to study the enrollment needs of FUHSD, with a focus on the declining enrollment of Lynbrook High School. The efforts of the committee resulted in the FUHSD Board of Trustees' approval of a plan to supplement Lynbrook's enrollment. Since that time, enrollment has continued to decline across FUHSD, with other campuses beginning to see the impacts of fewer students. For this reason, Superintendent Graham Clark  decided to reconvene the CAC and continue the work of the group to discuss strategies for balancing enrollment across all five comprehensive high schools beginning in the 2023-24 school year. Strategies that may be considered by the reconvened CAC do not include school closure. An initial outcome of the CAC will be to provide a report to the Board of Trustees at the November 15 Board meeting to enable them to make decisions around enrollment for implementation in the 2023-24 school year.    

While many of the original CAC members will be continuing their service on the committee, applications from other individuals who were interested in joining the committee were solicited in August 2022. Applications were only solicited from individuals living within the Cupertino, Fremont, Homestead and Monta Vista boundary areas, in order to balance the committee membership. The original committee was formed with the highest number of members coming from the Lynbrook High School attendance area, as Lynbrook was most affected by the decline in enrollment at the time of the CAC's forming. For this reason, new applications were not accepted from the Lynbrook community, as the school remains well represented by a strong contingent of members who remain committed to this work. The final selection of new members will be determined in adherence to the goal of forming a committee that is representative of a variety of stakeholders throughout the Fremont Union High School District.
