In an effort to spread the word about an informational meeting on the Facilities Bond that will be held at MSJHS on Thursday, March 20th, at 7 pm in Room C 120.
At the moment we need help with spreading the word among your school community about this meeting. Dr. Morris and a couple of school board members will be attending along with the Facilities Bond consultant. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions about the FUSD Facilities Bond that will be on the June ballot. As the parents of Fremont students, you will NOT be surprised to learn that the FUSD Community Facilities Committee identified $1.6 billion dollars in school facility needs in Fremont Unified. Our children are the ones that have have suffered with hot and cold classrooms, roof leaks, power outages, the lack of technology infrastructure and overcrowding. It is daunting to even begin to address the situation that years of under-funding has created.
In February of 2014, the Board of Education took the first steps toward addressing our needs by voting unanimously to place a school facility funding measure of up to $650 million dollars on the ballot in June of 2014. With this money they will be able to start addressing our most immediate needs:
- upgrade/repair neighborhood schools with local funding the State cannot take away
- update technology/aging classrooms, math, science/computer labs for 21st Century learning
- upgrade electrical wiring to current safety codes
- remove asbestos,
- repair, construct, acquire equipment, classrooms, sites, facilities*
If you are interested in learning more about this bond measure, please join us on March 20th -7:00 pm at Mission San Jose High School Rm C-120, 41717 Palm Avenue, where the measure will be discussed.
Dr. Jim Morris, Larry Tramutola-campaign consultant, Meryl Shatzman and a few of the school board members will be present at this event.
