Superintendent's Message - August/September 2019
Posted 8/12/19

 

Welcome back to the 2019-20 school year! I hope that you all had a summer filled with fun, friends, and family. We’re kicking off a momentous year in Fremont Unified with the completion of our very first middle school conversion at Walters, as we welcome Kennedy Attendance Area sixth graders onto campus. Horner Middle School will follow next year in 2020-21 with Thornton, Centerville, and Hopkins on their heels in the coming years. We once again thank Fremont voters for passing Measure E in 2014, which funded these conversions and other important facilities projects in our district.

We have many things to be proud of in Fremont--committed and dedicated staff, talented and innovative students, and a highly engaged community. The beginning of the school year is an excellent time to set district-wide goals and formulate action plans. Our management team here at FUSD is focused on several key areas to take us to the next level in 2019-20, including:

  • Creating equitable district-wide facilities standards
  • Enhancing emergency response procedures & partnerships with the City/County
  • Improving achievement for all student groups
  • Evaluating our TK-Adult educational programs and services for efficacy 
  • Identifying top concerns from California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) results and developing an action plan to address student needs
  • Expanding relationships with community organizations and businesses
  • Proactively communicating district news and information with staff and parents
  • Maintaining positive budget certification from the Alameda County Office of Education
  • Aligning our Portrait of a Fremont Graduate outcomes with program offerings and resources

Realizing these goals is a team effort and we are grateful to have support from our Board of Trustees, parents, students and colleagues in accomplishing them. As David Weinberger says, “The smartest person in the room, is the room.” I’m glad we’re all in this room called Fremont Unified together.
