    Pros

    Out of 59 districts with high schools in the 9-county Bay Area that I surveyed in 2007, FUSD ranked #2 in teacher salaries. For a teacher with my education and years of experience, I was paid $68 K/yr. They invest an awful lot of time and money in teacher development. Their data system, OARS, is fantastic. If compensation equals how much you value educators, then Fremont certainly shows it values teachers.

    Cons

    Some of the site Principals and Vice Principals aren't as bright as the teachers they supervise.

    Advice to Management

    Don't retaliate against teachers when they stand up to crazy parents. The classroom teacher is the professional and the parent is naturally biased. Otherwise, I would rate FUSD with an "A."

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Fremont USD (Fremont, CA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Hiring done based upon simple tests consisting of the following: (1) various nuts, bolts, screws and hand tools that you would see at your local Ace Hardware. (2) replace a fluorescent lamp ballast (3) weld two pieces of metal together with a wire-fed welder (4) thread a piece of pipe with a pipe threader. If you know someone who already works there you can get the answers to the test before you take it and if the head of maintenance likes you, you can fail the test miserably and still get the job. Military vets get additional points. Tell them what they want to hear and be careful what you say to whom because nepotism runs very deep at FUSD.
