Q: What is the situation in Fremont Schools?

A: We are proud of our award-winning schools and teachers, which help keep our community a desirable place to live, work, and raise a family - keeping our property values high. But our school district is among the lowest funded in Alameda County, and ongoing locally controlled funding to help improve our school sites is not currently in place.

Q: What improvements do local schools require?

A: Many of our schools are decades-old and require basic improvements to provide access to the same state-of-the-art education facilities that other students in Alameda County already have.  Additionally, the District does not have modern and flexible learning spaces suitable for all students and student programs including science, technology, engineering, art and math programs.

Q: What priorities for our schools has the community identified to date?

A: Residents believe strong communities and strong schools go hand-in-hand, with wise investments in neighborhood schools strengthening local property values. Top priorities for our schools that we’ve heard so far include:

  • 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  • Replacing outdated, aging and deteriorating temporary portable classrooms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  • Repairing and replacing outdated inefficient heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems and other school facilities and equipment
