Here is an update from Dr. Kim Wallace, the Superintendent of the Fremont Unified School District, about the Middle School transition of Walter's Jr. High.

The Board provided direction at the meeting last week to delay the opening of Walters Middle School to the 2019-20 school year (which puts it on the same timeline as Horner). Due to unexpected California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) additional requirements, construction on the new building will not be completed until November of 2018 at the earliest.

While the delay was not in our plan, we believe that having a longer runway to develop the STEAM program at Walters, train teachers, identify curriculum, and have classrooms move-in ready on the first day of school are all benefits to the decision. Please communicate this out to your families so they know that Kennedy Attendance Area 5th graders will attend their home elementary school next year (2018-19) as 6th graders and their current 4th graders will be the first incoming middle schoolers in their 6th grade year in 2019-20.
