Fremont Unified School District Board of Education Update regarding Spanish Immersion Unification at the Marshall School Site:

Authorized Staff to Extend the Lease Agreement with Stratford School – The District's Marshall Elementary School (Marshall) campus was closed after the 2000-2001 school year. In May 2004, the district entered into a 20-year lease agreement with Stratford School, Inc. (Stratford), for the former Marshall Elementary School. The lease agreement includes an early termination provision that allows the District the right to terminate the Lease at any time after the conclusion of the twelfth-year if the Premises are needed for public school purposes. If the District elects this early termination, the District will give the Tenant (Stratford) a minimum of 24 months advance written notice prior to the termination date. On March 9, 2016, the Board of Education authorized staff to terminate the lease agreement between the District and Stratford with a 24-month termination notice, effective March 15, 2016.  Staff also recommended to the Board to dedicate Marshall as the future site for the Spanish Dual Immersion (SDI) program.  

In September 2017, Stratford contacted the District to request a lease extension. Stratford is requesting a lease extension of three months, with an option to extend an additional two months, for a total period of up to five months, due to possible delays in the construction of Stratford's new campus. The original move-out date of Stratford is June 30, 2018, which means that the District won't be able to start any needed repairs and/or renovations to bring the site to a move-in condition until July 1, 2018.  Depending on the magnitude of work needed, the site may not be fully ready for SDI program occupancy by the beginning of the 2018-19 school year. Staff recommended the Board authorize the extension of the lease agreement with Stratford Schools for. The extension of Stratford lease as described will result in the postponement of the unification of SDI program at the Marshall site to Fall of 2019, and will provide the District sufficient time to perform the necessary repairs and/or renovations before the occupancy of the SDI program.

Board approves with stipulation that any revenue generated from extension of lease will go directly toward renovation costs of the Marshall site when the District takes ownership.
