I worked at Fremont USD full-time (More than 3 years)

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."

    Pros

    Amazing teaching colleagues, solid resources, and generally supportive parents.

    Cons

    The District eliminated the no-lay off clause, which was the single best reason to teach in this District. Having job security made up for the lack of benefits, onerous non-teaching duties, and large class sizes.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust the 40 hour rule and reinstate the no-lay off clause.

    Would be better without the unions. No way to clean out poor or non-performing individuals.
