March 1, 2024

Dear Fremont Unified Community,

I am excited to share that this week Irvington High School was named a 2024 California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education for its outstanding education programs and practices. Congratulations to Irvington’s staff and students on this achievement – go Vikings! Click here to read more. 

I feel incredibly fortunate to serve the Fremont Unified students, staff and community. Our schools are supportive, challenging and enriching, with opportunities for each student to thrive in our classrooms and beyond. Though I am incredibly proud of each of our schools, I know many of our facilities require immediate attention, and each site has unmet facilities needs and unmet potential due to facilities shortcomings. 

I thank the many of you who already Joined the Conversation on unmet needs in Fremont Unified by completing our brief survey. From the feedback we have received to date, we see that respondents want to ensure that our students have access to state-of-the-art education facilities by:

  • Updating classrooms and science labs
  • Providing updated equipment and learning technology for classrooms, science and computer labs, and libraries
  • Replacing aging and leaking roofs
  • Replacing outdated, aging temporary portable classrooms
  • Repairing, replacing, upgrading and installing security, fire, lighting and other safety systems
  • Repairing and replacing outdated inefficient heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems and other school facilities and equipment

While more specific and dedicated funding is still needed, work towards these goals is underway wherever possible with current funding, including a major undertaking by the District to provide students and staff access to upgraded learning technology, with security enhancements across our technology systems. Find more information about these efforts below. 

If you have not yet done so, please visit and share your thoughts on which goals we should prioritize.

Thank you for your continued support of our students, staff and schools.

District Technology Update

Our Technology Department is leading a major effort to enhance the learning and work experience for our students and staff, and you will see a number of changes in the coming months. 

  1. District-Wide Chromebook Refresh: Every classroom will be equipped with a dedicated Chromebook cart, providing enhanced accessibility and flexibility for both teachers and students. This endeavor is aligned with our commitment to fostering a technologically-enriched learning environment.
  2. Upgrade of Selected Student Labs: We are investing in the upgrade of selected site computer labs. This includes the installation of cutting-edge technology and resources to support student learning and innovation.
  3. New Password Reset Tool for Staff and Students: We are introducing a new password reset tool for both staff and students. This tool will empower users to reset their passwords independently, enhancing security measures and ensuring a seamless login experience.  You will receive more information on this in the coming weeks.

We appreciate your support and collaboration as we work together to create an environment that nurtures academic excellence and technological literacy.
