Facility Coffee Discussion Updates:

Community Meeting set for March 31st

All residents in the Fremont City School District are invited to attend an important community meeting to discuss what to do about our district’s aging school buildings. The meeting is scheduled for March 31st from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Fremont Middle School.

By March 31st, the residents of our community will have hosted nearly 70 coffee discussions regarding the condition of our elementary and high school facilities and possible options to bring them up to state standard. In addition to presenting the feedback from these discussions, the District will be providing detailed information about the cost of renovating our current buildings versus constructing new buildings, the availability of state funding to help pay for new school facilities and other information requested during the coffee discussions.

This past spring, employees of Fremont City Schools were asked to participate in a staff survey to share their views about how our District’s facilities are impacting teaching and learning. Our staff reported that a large number of our students are being adversely impacted by the condition of our high school and elementary buildings. When asked how important it is that the problems being generated by the condition of these buildings be addressed, 86% of our teachers and non-teaching employees said “extremely important” or “very important.”

The educational problems being generated by our current school facilities include moisture, mold and allergy issues, breathing problems, poor ventilation, the lack of access to technology, inadequate classroom space for teaching and learning, and classroom temperature extremes that make it hard for students to concentrate. The loss of instructional time can range from a few minutes a day in some classrooms to the majority of the day in others.

If you would like more information regarding the staff survey, coffee discussions or the March 31st community meeting, please feel free to contact me at superintendent@fremontschools.net or call 419-334-5432.

Thank you,

Dr. Traci McCaudy, Superintendent
