Dear Fremont Community:

Sixth Map Option for Consideration - 

The District’s demographer has created an additional map, Plan 6, following public feedback provided at the District’s November 20, 2019 public hearing.  Plan 6 joins Plans 1-5 as options currently under consideration by the District’s Governing Board.  Plan 6 offers a different look compared to many of the other options while still attempting to keep many elementary school attendance areas intact.  Plan 6, like the other options, meets the equal population requirement and increases the voting power of the largest protected classes in the District (Hispanic/Latino; Asian; and African American) by Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP/eligible voters) in at least two Trustee Areas per map based on up-to-date CVAP statistics compared to District-wide averages. Additionally, Plan 6 creates two Asian majority areas per map by CVAP. 

Each map option for consideration:

  1. Meets the equal population requirement (that each trustee area have equal population with up to a 10% variance);
  2. Increases the voting power of the largest protected classes in the District (Hispanic/Latino; Asian; and African American) by Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP/eligible voters) in at least two Trustee Areas per map based on up-to-date CVAP statistics compared to District-wide averages;
  3. Creates minimum of two Asian majority areas per map by CVAP;
  4. Complies with the Federal Voting Rights Act;
  5. Respects communities of interest as much as possible;
  6. Is compact and contiguous as much as possible; and
  7. Follows man-made and natural geographic features as much as possible.
