Brookvale September 2023 News Update

PARENTSQUARE:  NEW COMMUNICATION TOOL helping you stay informed!

Fremont Unified is excited to launch a new school-to-home communication platform: ParentSquare. ParentSquare allows teachers, staff, and parents/guardians to send and receive messages, share pictures and files, see calendar items, and much more via email, phone, text and/or the ParentSquare app.

By creating an account, you will gain access to a variety of features and tools. Those who opt not to register their account will still receive text, email and phone notifications sent from your student’s teacher(s), school or the District.  Please ensure these important notices don’t end up in your Spam folder.

We look forward to connecting with you on ParentSquare!



We understand students do get sick.  If your child will be absent from school, you must report the absence by one of the following ways:

BROOKVALE SSC/ELAC 2023-24 OPENINGS—We need 3 Volunteers

The purpose of the School Site Council (SSC) and ELAC is to oversee the school programs that include the curriculum and best instructional practices. SSC is made up of the principal, parents and teachers, and ensures that the needs of every Brookvale student are met. The SSC monitors the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) Plan (see below). This group also oversees the spending of certain funds provided through LCAP (see below).

SSC is made up of an equal number of parents and staff. Parents are elected by parents, and staff are elected by the staff. These members represent the entire school community.

LCAP: Local Control Accountability Plan

  • This is the plan developed to ensure continuous improvement of our school. We write the plan for Brookvale and ensure that it is aligned with the district’s visions and goals. It is rewritten yearly to reflect the needs of our current students. It is available on the district website.

SPSA: Single Plan for Student Achievement:

  • This plan is developed to make sure there is ongoing improvement of our school. The plan is written specifically for Brookvale on an annual basis to reflect the needs of all of our current students. It is available on the district website.

SSC meetings take place 5 times per school year. An agenda for each meeting will be posted on the website and outside the office at least 72 hours before the meeting date. All meetings are open to the public. Contact Mrs. Elliott via to let her know you want to be part of the SSC TEAM for the 2023-2024 School Year.
