    Major themes

    Major Themes

    Theme 1: Support for Fremont Unified School District

    Graphical data from public meetings & surveys

    The school system is an integral part to the overall success of the community and the people recognize this fact. Fremont is the place to live and the schools play a major role in creating this feeling.

    The chart shows the response to question: “How would you rate the quality of education students receive in Fremont Unified School District?”

    • 77% as either Excellent or Good

    Major themes1

    Major Themes

    Theme 1: Support for Fremont Unified School District

    One caveat….

    Class sizes, condition of the schools, and inequalities in programs are creating a concern that these high standards are being jeopardized.

    Major themes2

    Major Themes

    Theme 2: Facilities have a long list of needs

    There is a lack of funding that affects every area of the district

    The age of buildings creates many needs such as:

    Restrooms are in need of upgrading

    Curb appeal is lacking at most schools

    HVAC systems don’t work or are not balanced within buildings (too hot/too cold)

    Limited capacity of schools to receive technology (electrical outlets)

    Safety of buildings

    Outside lighting

    Open campuses

    Graphical data from public meetings & surveys

    The chart shows the response to question: “How would you rate the overall physical condition of the school buildings in Fremont Unified School District? ”

    • 31% rated as Excellent or Good and

    • 68% as Fair or Poor

    9


    Major themes3

    Major Themes

    Theme 3: EQUITY! EQUITY! EQUITY!

    Program opportunities are not equitable within Fremont schools. People want the program offerings to be equitable and still recognize the uniqueness of each school. They want a core curriculum at every school while allowing some program variance.

    Graphical data from public meetings & surveys

    The above charts shows the responses to “Program offerings are equitable among Fremont schools.”

    • 32% rated as Strongly Agreed/Agreed and

    • 47% as Strongly Disagreed/Disagreed

    10


    Major themes4

    Major Themes

    Theme 3: EQUITY! EQUITY! EQUITY! (continued)

    The equity areas most often mentioned were:

    • Performing arts

    • Parking and bus/parent drop off zones

    • Playgrounds and athletic facilities

    • Science labs

    • Lack of classroom space for programs

    • Technology

    11


    Major themes5

    Major Themes

    Theme 4: Technology is lacking

    Technology must be a focus within all schools when addressing issues of equity.

    There is little equity in technology throughout the district

    The age and condition of existing equipment is a key indicator of the problems with technology

    The connectivity is slow, undependable and unreliable

    There is a need to establish a base line on how great these differences are within schools

    Graphical data from public meetings & surveys

    The chart shows the response to question: “How would you rate the technology provided for students and staff?”

    65% rated as Fair or Poor

    12


    Major themes6

    Major Themes

    Theme 5: The “right” long-range facility plan (LRFP) should:

    • Be data-driven

    • Be based on standards that are equitable

    • Be based on a process that engaged the public in the creation and implementation of the plan

    • Address issues of capacity

    • Recognize the right time to ask the public for additional financial support

    • Improve overall communications for the district
