Special Program Elementary School Information
New Registrants to Fremont Unified School District
Every child must initially enroll at the school assigned to their home address. There are two programs that offer the opportunity to transfer to another elementary school if you want your child to be enrolled in that program. Admission is based on available space. If you are interested in the Science Magnet or Spanish Immersion Programs, you will need to fill out an Intra District Transfer Request at your home school after you register. Please make the request as MAGNET or IMMERSION in the upper right hand corner. All regular intra district transfer requests for the school year 2009-2010 may not be filed until May 1, 2009.
