WELCOME TO FREMONT PUBLIC SCHOOLS
The mission of Fremont Public Schools
is to produce creative, adaptable, productive citizens
committed to lifelong learning.
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We have a number of exciting initiatives underway at Fremont Public Schools and are really pleased that you and your students will be part of it. Here on our website you will find information concerning the schools including school/activity calendars, meal menus, personnel contact information and bond project updates. Our website also provides information concerning registering for “PowerSchool for Parents” – which allows you to monitor your child’s performance in school. Please take some time to check out our new “News” page on the site. We are proud of our community, our children, their parents and our faculty and support personnel who define our schools and what they are about.
A number of successful projects have been completed over the summer. Fremont Public Schools helped plan and participate in a multi-agency training exercise designed to continue to keep our students and staff safe. Our best defense continues to be communication. We message, “if you see something, say something, If you hear something, tell someone.” We are fortunate to have students, staff, parents and a community that are willing to share information with us.
Fremont continues to move forward with planning and construction of projects identified during the 2021 bond election. A number of our facilities will be in various stages of construction over the next few years. When the dust settles we will have much improved learning environments for our students and staff. The bond issue citizens committee prioritized and identified “Safety and Security” as a major tenet – the project planning incorporates this into the design. We will continue with monthly updates on the progress of these projects here on our website.
At Fremont High School a strong emphasis has been placed on dual-credit/enrollment opportunities for students in their junior and senior years of high school. The goal is that in the near future every student graduating from Fremont High School will have had the opportunity to complete at least a semester of college dual credit. Metropolitan Community College, working with the Unicameral have been able to secure funding for tuition for students engaged in dual credit programming. The Fremont Public Schools Foundation supports students who need assistance in procuring equipment and textbooks for these courses. These courses not only allow a student to gain a head start into their college experience, they are also allowing our students and their families to save money.
We continuously review and upgrade our curriculum and make improvements in programs to ensure quality and provide high level experiences for children and youth. Teachers throughout the District spent an incredible amount of time this summer reviewing/developing curriculum to continue to improve learning and meet the State Standards. The Tier 1/Tier 2 Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) teams spent time identifying interventions to assist students in meeting their social/emotional needs.
The Fremont Public School Foundation plays an integral role in much of what we are involved in. Please visit their website at http://fpsfoundation.com/ to learn more about their important work and to identify ways you can participate!
We hope you find that our schools and programs exceed your expectations. We look forward to a great relationship in the education of your youngsters and invite you to become involved in their education. The Board has identified parent engagement as a renewed priority. Attend parent- teacher conferences, join the PTA and become knowledgeable about your schools and consider serving on the principal’s advisory committee for your students’ school. Please contact your building principal if you have interest/questions about this new opportunity.
Please feel free to contact your school or any of the district offices if you have questions concerning a specific area.
