What is the Calendar Shift?
Fremont is home to hard-working, well-rounded, and self-motivated students. However, there is an issue that the majoirty of students face evey year: semester one finals. Based on our survey, about 77% of all FUSD students found that finals after winter break was not ideal; they did not want to go on a two week break thinking about the finals they had to take when they come back. What SURF has proposed is to shift the school calendar back three weeks. This simple shift will ensure positive mental health, more time for AP tests and college apps, and ELD and special needs students will retain information much better. If you believe that shifting the calendar back is important to students, families, annd faculty of FUSD, come to board meetings on Wednesays or email your trustees! Below is our report and video for the calenndar shift.
