The safety of students crossing streets near our school is everyone’s first concern. FUSD, in conjunction with the Fremont Police, is developing a new, improved volunteer crossing guard program. The program will be launched in May, after which Mission Valley will redesign our own parent volunteer program to be in compliance. The new program will be safer for both students and volunteers. In addition, volunteer positions may be easier with a shorter time commitment. The tentative plan is to launch the new program next fall. We hope you will volunteer!
Because of these changes, we have suspended our current volunteer Safety Patrol program for the remainder of the year, effective immediately. We wish to thank the many wonderful parents who volunteered for the old program! We hope to see you again next year in the new program. Our outstanding student crossing guards will remain on duty from 8:10 to 8:20.
With these changes, please consider these options to ensure the safety of your children:
1. Have your child arrive at school before 8:20 so they can cross with the student crossing guards.
2. Escort your child across the street when no crossing guards are present.
3. Use the drive through to avoid crosswalks.
On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight. Numerous math programs were evaluated by the Fremont USD 2014 Math Adoption Committee. Over 60 teachers and administrators worked collaboratively, over a series of meetings spanning two months, to evaluate potential texts in the areas of: assessment, alignment to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the digital component, supports for English learners, students with disabilities and instruction in higher mathematics. Community input was also solicited. Based on the findings from the evaluation, the programs that best fit the needs for the students of Fremont Unified School District are:
· Math Expressions ((2105) by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for grades K-5, and
· Springboard Math (2014) by the College Board for grades 6-8
All teachers will receive professional development in the summer to help prepare them for the new adoption. All student texts are consumable which will result in a lighter load in backpacks. Families will receive digital access codes to the student online component in the fall.Algebra 1 is under review and the final recommendation will be presented to the Board of Education in July.
