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

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 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

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

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

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

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
