Fremont Union High School District’s (FUHSD) English Learner Program: Voices of New Americans has been chosen as one of this year’s recipients of the prestigious Golden Bell Award. Presented by the California School Boards Association (CSBA), this award recognizes public school programs that focus on meeting the needs of all students, are innovative and sustainable, and have made a demonstrated difference in the classroom.


With a sizeable English Learner (EL) population representing more than 35 different languages, FUHSD redesigned its EL program in 2008 with a focus on the creation of a cohesive EL curriculum that would promote increased academic language production for all students while growing their oral and written proficiency.


As student achievement increased alongside the new and innovative curriculum, FUHSD sought out opportunities for EL students to demonstrate and celebrate their proficiency in English. Two programs subsequently resulted from these efforts – the EL Speech Contest and a student anthology publication. Each of these programs has supported students in developing confidence, celebrating their acquisition of a second language and sharing their personal stories with peers, teachers and the broader community.


“The Golden Bell Award is a worthy honor for our English Learner Program, which has been central to our efforts as a district to promote high levels of achievement for all students,” said Superintendent Polly Bove. “I am tremendously proud of the efforts of both our staff, who have made this program a reality through an intense focus on collaboration and continuous improvement of their practice, and our students, who demonstrate great courage in sharing their unique voices and stories with our school community.”


Each year, more than 300 students and 150 community volunteers participate in the EL Speech Contest. The anthology series debuted in 2013, showcasing a selection of personal narratives from students across the district’s five high schools.  


A judging panel made up of experts from school districts and county offices of education reviewed all Golden Bell Award entries and made initial recommendations for awards, with finalists assessed during an on-site validation visit. FUHSD will receive its award at a recognition ceremony to be held on Saturday, Dec. 3 at the CSBA’s Annual Education Conference in San Francisco.


Earlier this year, FUHSD’s EL program was also selected by the Santa Clara County School Boards Association as a recipient of the 2016 Glenn W. Hoffmann Award, which recognizes successful school programs that have a significant impact on student success in Santa Clara County.

During the Labor Day weekend, students at both Fremont and Homestead high schools received some disturbing and threatening messages via social media.  The messages were anti-semitic in nature, threatened violence at our schools and were labeled as a hate crime by the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety. While local law enforcement was able to move quickly and efficiently to make an arrest and resolve this situation in a positive manner, there have been some lasting effects which have given our district time to pause, reflect and strengthen our resolve to not only educate your students, but to help them become better citizens that will contribute positively to the world we live in. 


While this particular incident was anti-semitic in nature, it has provided us with an opportunity as a district to look at how we can increase inclusiveness within our school communities in meaningful ways and ensure a safe space for all students, regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation. 


As a district, we are committed to:

  • delivering a message specifically to students when issues of hate and harassment arise that have an impact on the entire community;
  • a partnership with the Anti-Defamation League, to include education and training for both students and staff; and
  • continued outreach to and support for students through various school site organizations.
For more information on the District’s commitment to creating a culture of acceptance, respect and inclusiveness, please read the attached community letter from Superintendent Polly Bove.
