Earlier this year, the Board of Trustees approved placing Measure G, a $275 million school bond, on the ballot on June 7, 2022. Measure G would allow FUHSD to continue the renovation and modernization of all district high schools, providing all students and teachers with modern, functional classrooms and facilities. Our schools have been greatly improved by past bond funds, but additional facilities needs remain across the district. All of our high schools were built more than 50 years ago, placing them at the prime age for safety updates and modernization. All voters in the Fremont Union High School District will be asked to vote on Measure G on the June 7, 2022 ballot.
Modernization in each classroom would include new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, LED lighting replacement and ceiling tiles, fire alarms and sprinklers, a technology refresh, new furniture, painting and patching, roofing and flooring.
Measure G would provide strict accountability, with all funds audited annually and reviewed by an independent citizens' oversight committee. The average yearly cost to property owners in the District would be $16 per $100,000 of assessed value (not market value). FUHSD is proud to have the highest possible credit rating for a school district from both Standard and Poor's (Aaa) and Moody's (AAA). This has allowed the District to refinance bonds at favorable rates and save taxpayer money.
Some of the future needs that could potentially be funded by Measure G include the following:
- Completion of modernization of all classrooms in the district;
- Modernized and redesigned libraries at all five campuses; and
- New District Robotics Center.
