Parent Survey - February 2016

In support of the Fremont Union High School District's dedication to working in partnership with the parents and guardians of FUHSD students, a survey of parents was conducted in February 2016 to measure the degree of parent satisfaction with their student's school and FUHSD. 

The parent survey focused on seven main areas: Curriculum, academic experience, safety and support, staff-parent interaction, preferred communication methods, administration priorities, and strengths and improvements.  A link to the survey was emailed to parents/guardians and paper copies (in English, Mandarin, and Spanish) were mailed to parents/guardians for whom we do not have an email address.  The survey received 2,145 responses from a total of 9,781 unique households, approximately 22% of the FUHSD parent community.

Summary of Parent Survey Conclusions:

Overall, the parent survey identified the greatest strengths of the Fremont Union High School District as:

  • Academic excellence
  • Staff and faculty
  • Community/school environment

The following subjects were identified as areas to improve:

  • Consistency and quality of teachers
  • Fairness and timeliness of grading
  • Communication

Sharing of Parent Survey Results:

The results of the parent survey were collated by Hanover Research and provided to FUHSD in March 2016.  Between March and May of 2016, presentations to share the survey results were made at each high school site to various stakeholder groups including PTSAs, School Site Councils, English Language Advisory committees, Bilingual Committees, and Los Padres groups, as well as the FUHSD Intra District Council (IDC), the student representative leadership group. In addition, FUHSD principals have shared the results with their school staff members.  

Local Control Accountability Plan

The parent survey was conducted to address the following goals articulated in the FUHSD Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP):

  1. Sustain generally high student performance while ensuring high levels of learning for every student
  2. All students will have access to a guaranteed and viable curriculum designed to help them pursue their passions and interest while preparing them for college and careers
  3. Every student will feel safe, cared about, and both academically and socially engaged in school
  4. Parents, students, and other community stakehodlers will have a variety of opportunities to learn about and give feedback on school and District priorities, expenditures, and programs

Many of the strengths and needs areas identified by parents have already been identified by the District as key areas to focus on as part of the LCAP over the next several years:

  • Goal 1: Academic support of struggling students
  • Goal 2: Improve consistency of grading
  • Goal 3: Emotional support for struggling students
  • Goal 4: Communication between parents and teachers

High School Action Plans

Each of the FUHSD high schools is in the process of working with their parent communities to review and discuss the survey data in greater detail, identify their unique priorities, and develop action plans to address these areas.  In general, the principal at each school has indicated that the following issues are those that their school communities would like to look into in greater detail:

  • Cupertino High School: Grading practices
  • Fremont High School: Grading practices
  • Homestead High School: Marketing (grading, homework, and teacher consistency) and staff helpfulness
  • Lynbrook High School: Communication (Advanced Placement and Honors class access, consistent curriculum and instruction) and staff helpfulness
  • Monta Vista High School: Coherence (grading and curriculum), communication (parent-teacher), and stress reduction
