Indiana Performance Qualified School District
Welcome to Fremont Community Schools
The 2014-2015 school year is underway, and we couldn’t be more excited! Fremont Community Schools has a lot to be proud of, and has even more to look forward to than before. I have no doubt that this will be our best year yet!
I would like to start by touching on our continued academic success. Our school corporation once again has been rated as an “A” school from the Indiana Department of Education. Our ISTEP+ scores were just released for last school year and I am extremely proud to announce that Fremont Community Schools has received the highest scores in the area and has exceeded the state passing average. Earlier last spring, Fremont High School was designated as a Four Star School by the Indiana Department of Education. This honor is bestowed upon high schools exceeding academic, attendance and graduation requirements.
We are very excited to be moving forward with our wireless infrastructure initiative. Our teachers have all received Google Chromebooks and have begun professional development on how to incorporate technology into their existing curriculum. Teachers will receive ongoing professional development throughout the school year. Mobile carts with Chromebooks will be launched at each school for classroom use. Our ultimate goal will focus on progressing toward providing technology tools for every student.
Perhaps the biggest news is the change of our school day starting times. This new schedule will allow for teachers and staff to thoroughly address students’ academic needs, including implementing new Indiana Academic Standards, reviewing new and revised assessments, better incorporating technology into our curriculum, and increasing collaboration and articulation between grade levels and buildings. All of our hard work done during this time will directly impact our students in a positive way. The new schedule is posted on our web-site.
We feel honored to be a part of your child’s educational path! Only through a strong shared commitment between parents, students, teachers, support staff, and administration can our students continue to achieve high levels of academic success and reach goals to better prepare them for a successful future. Together, we will create the best learning environment possible for your child(ren)! As always, thank you for your continued support.
