General Information

New Students & Families

The Enrollment and Residency office has four important functions: 

  1. Help new students enroll in our district
  2. Insure that all new students live within our district boundaries
  3. Investigate all possible fraudulent residency claims

The staff is also trained to help students and their families with the following:

  • Inter District transfer screening
  • Change of address services
  • Appeals due to disenrollment, school placement or inter-district transfer denials
  • McKinney Vento homeless or displaced services
  • Immunization updates and follow-up
  • Community resources/services referrals
  • District & School Boundary issues
  • Translation help in Mandarin and Spanish

Though still focused on verifying each student's residency within our District boundries, the Enrollment and Residency Center also serves as a welcoming place for new students and their families enrolling in the District. Manager Julie Darwish and Senior Clerical Assistant Elena Macias warmly welcome those new to the District and provide them with transition information and support. Their focus is on personalizing the enrollment of each student and family by connecting them to any needed support services and helping them acclimate to the social and cultural environment of their new school community.

A Brief History

In January 2005 the Fremont Union High School District began a residency verification effort to ensure that our schools are reserved for only those students who are valid residents within the District boundaries.

Our District receives funding directly from property taxes paid by our community residents with no funds provided by the state based on enrollment. Our residency verification process ensures that every tax dollar of our community is used to support the students who actually live in our attendance area.

As part of this effort, we have implemented the following actions: increased the documentation required to enroll a student in the district, required residency verification for continuing students, instituted home visits to insure student/family are living where listed, created an anonymous Residency Tip Line, educated all staff members on importance of residency and much more.

Proposed Attendance Area Shift

Enrollment projections for the Fremont Union High School District have indicated that by the 2020-2021 school year Cupertino High School will grow to 2,760 students while Lynbrook High School’s enrollment will decrease to 1,625 students. We have learned that when there is a significant reduction in the number of students at a high school this can often result in fewer choices for students, less flexibility for when classes are offered, and reductions in elective courses and staffing.  Conversely, if a school’s enrollment gets too large that can be associated with other challenges. 

In order to create a better enrollment balance the FUHSD Board of Trustees is considering shifting a small section currently in the Cupertino High School attendance area into the Lynbrook High School attendance area.   Click here to view a map with details about this area.  

Details of the proposal are not yet finalized nor approved.  However, one proposal being considered by the FUHSD Board of Trustees is that during the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years families who reside in this area may choose to have their student attend Lynbrook High School.  If this proposal is approved by the FUHSD Board of Trustees, beginning in the 2018-2019 school year this attendance area change would become permanent and students who reside within the area would attend Lynbrook High School.

A proposal like this understandably comes with many questions from parents and students.  How will my family be affected? Will younger siblings be able to go to the school that their older siblings attended? Is Lynbrook High School a good fit for my student? These considerations will be addressed in the proposal that will soon be presented to the FUHSD Board of Trustees and the Board is committed to making a transition like this as smooth and seamless as possible. Please be reassured that the FUHSD Board of Trustees is dedicated to keeping families together and no student who currently attends Cupertino High School will be asked to change schools.

To learn more about the proposal to shift a small section of the Cupertino High School attendance area to the Lynbrook High School attendance area, please plan to attend a Community meeting on Monday, November 16 at 6:30 pm in the Lynbrook High School auditorium.  Staff members from Cupertino and Lynbrook High Schools will be at the meeting, as will Lynbrook parents, staff, and students, and FUHSD staff members.  Like Cupertino High School, Lynbrook High School is routinely ranked in the top 500 high schools in the nation and is located at 1280 Johnson Avenue in San Jose.

Since our inception in 1923, the Fremont Union High School District has been dedicated to providing a rich, comprehensive education to our students and offering to them abundant opportunities to participate in a myriad of different academic and elective classes.  Extra-curricular opportunities and participation in sports and clubs are also a vital component to a comprehensive high school experience.  This proposed shift in attendance area would be beneficial to our students, staff, and community. 

If you would like to share your opinion about this proposed attendance area shift with the Fremont Union High School District please contact FUHSD Communications Coordinator Sue Larson at
