On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, the Fremont Union High School District (FUHSD) Board of Trustees accepted the recommendation of the Citizens Advisory Committee and approved a resolution creating a supplemental school assignment plan to help stabilize declining enrollment at Lynbrook High School. The resolution creates a temporary program allowing qualifying students to apply for an intra-district transfer to attend Lynbrook High School. The official Board Resolution is available on the FUHSD website at www.fuhsd.org.
The Board Resolution allows for students to qualify for admission to Lynbrook High School if:
- the student is currently in the 8th Grade attending Miller Middle School on an intra-district transfer (this means the student is attending Miller Middle School, but lives outside the Miller Middle School attendance area) OR
- the student is currently in the 8th Grade attending Christa McAuliffe School OR
- the student is currently in the 8th Grade and lives within the CUSD Hyde Attendance boundary area, which is the Cupertino High School Attendance area East of Wolfe Rd. / Miller Ave., excluding Vallco Parkway.
Qualified students attending Miller Middle School or Christa McAuliffe School will be granted guaranteed admission to Lynbrook High school upon completion of the application process.
For students living in the CUSD Hyde Middle School attendance area, 55 spots at Lynbrook High School are available. If the number of applications exceeds the 55 spots available, then a lottery will be held to determine the 55 students admitted to Lynbrook High School for the 2017-18 school year.
Younger siblings of qualified students may also be included in this transfer program. Please read the application instruction for more details on qualified siblings.
If you are interested in this program and wish to apply, please read the application instructions very carefully and be sure to meet the application deadline of 4:00 PM on January 25, 2017.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Enrollment and Residency Office or visit the Enrollment and Residency website. Lynbrook High School will also be hosting an Information Night for qualified students and parents on January 12, 2017 at 7:00 PM in the Auditorium.
