Join us for the next Board Office Hours session on April 4 at Fremont High School from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Trustees Naomi Nakano-Matsumoto and Jeff Moe will be in attendance to answer questions and share information about the work of the FUHSD Board of Trustees.
In recognition of the critical role that communication, transparency and accessibility play in the relationship between the Board of Trustees and the parents, families and community members that reside in FUHSD, the Board launched a Office Hours program in 2017. It is our belief that regular, open-door meetings and dialogue between the Board and members of the community will help continue to strengthen positive communication and trust between the District and the students, families and residents that it serves.
Interested in learning more about what our Trustees have been doing out in the school community? Check out the Board Communication Corner for the latest updates.
Join us on Friday, March 29, for the Fremont Union High School Foundation's Spring Fling, which is the foundation's primary fundraising event at the De Anza Campus Center. This first annual Spring Fling has a “Celebrate the 80’s" theme honoring the start of the Foundation, and we need your participation and support! Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite, while paper tickets are available at the District office or your high school office.
About the FUHS Foundation - Did You Know?
- The FUHS Foundation pays for many essential collaboration tools such as School Loop and Naviance;
- The Foundation provides grants for our teachers to offer innovative programs and replace equipment that our schools do not have the budget for; and
- The Foundation supports student activities such as Leadership, Athletics, Journalism, Choir, Drama, Robotics and Art. Without the foundation funds, many of these activities would be greatly minimized or lost.
The Foundation’s existence is imperative for our school district to support our students to the highest level and remain one of the highest performing high school districts in California. It truly takes a village of connected parents, teachers, other professional educators, PTSAs and our Foundation to educate the 11,000+ students at our five schools.

Both Monta Vista and Lynbrook high schools have been named as California Distinguished Schools for 2019.
This year, 162 middle and high schools were honored across the state. Schools were awarded either for achieving exceptional student performance for two consecutive school years or closing the achievement gap between two school year.
Monta Vista's submission highlighted the school's Collective Commitments process, by which staff come together and collectively agree to the focus of their work for the year. These commitments are informed by and honor the FUHSD Beliefs and the knowledge base of Monta Vista High School staff.
Lynbrook's submission focused on the school's CTE Business and STEM programs, which are built upon powerful partnerships and strong bonds between the classroom and co-curricular opportunities.
The Distinguished Schools program was on a three-year pause while California transitioned to its new assessment and accountability system. The program returned last year, recognizing elementary and middle and high schools in alternate years and allowing eligible schools to apply once every two years.
Schools recognized as awardees hold the title for two years. Schools that applied were eligible based on their performance and progress on the state indicators as described on the California School Dashboard. Indicators include test scores, suspension rates and graduation rates. Honorees will be recognized at the California School Recognition Program Awards Ceremony on April 5.
