Educational Options Center
In addition to the five comprehensive high schools and the FUHSD Adult School, the Fremont Union High School District offers various programs through Educational Options to meet the needs of all students. The mission of Educational Options is to provide an individualized pathway to success for every student. On the Educational Options campus, an Assistant Principal, Guidance Counselor, School Psychologist, Student Advocate and other staff are available to support students on a daily basis.
These programs operate on a referral basis, and the initial contact should be made at the student’s home school with an Assistant Principal or a Guidance Counselor. Many of these programs have limited spaces available and involve either an application process and/or an interview. Transportation to and from any of the educational options programs are the responsibility of the student and his/her family.
Placement of students in Educational Options is through the Placement Advisory Committee (PAC). The student and his/her family meet with district representatives of all programs to mutually determine appropriate placement for maximum success. For more information, please contact the appropriate Assistant Principal or a Guidance Counselor at your home school.
- Customized Learning Program (CLP)
- Community School
- Postsecondary Programs - Bridges, Wings and Lyncs
A voluntary alternative program designed for students who want to complete credits towards a high school diploma or other post-secondary options in a small, blended learning environment.
Students will be enrolled in up to four hours of classes on the Educational Options campus. Their customized schedule will be a combination of teacher-supported, online classes and direct instruction classes.
- Online classes: Using the Odysseyware and ALEKS online platforms, small group work and in-class projects, students will have the opportunity to complete high school credits needed for graduation.
- Direct Instruction: Students can choose small, supportive classes in Math, History, English, Read 180 and Transitions.
- In addition to their on-site classes, students will be expected to spend an additional 2-3 hours a day in diploma-track activities. Students will work with the guidance counselor and CLP teacher to customize a schedule to complete these additional credits using community college classes, home high school classes, Work Experience, internships etc.
Within the structure of CLP, we offer several additional supports for designated students.
In addition to taking core classes in CLP, interested students are provided support to pass a high school equivalency exam (GED or Hi-Set). CLP staff work closely with FUHSD Adult Education to connect students to the variety of high school equivalency and adult diploma options available after high school.
