After twelve years of dedication to the Fremont Union High School District -- and forty years serving educational efforts -- Academic Deputy Superintendent Kate Jamentz will be retiring on June 30, 2016. The innovation, deep thinking, and collaborative work that are the hallmark of Kate's FUHSD tenure are deeply woven into the FUHSD fabric and phrases that now so easily roll-off the tongues of FUHSD staff members as if they had always been known include the FUHSD belief statements, "intelligence is malleable", "guaranteed and viable curriculum", and "all means all". They are signs of the difference that Kate has made at FUHSD and throughout the community.
FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove commented that, "I cannot envision a more intelligent, strategic, focused, dedicated, or passionate leader to have had at my side over these past nearly twelve years than Kate. She has inspired and challenged us to set high expectations for our students and ourselves and provide all students with rigorous classroom experiences."
In celebration of the immeasurable difference that Kate has made while at FUHSD, a new award has been established: the Dr. Kate Jamentz Award: Ensuring Excellence Through Collegial Collaboration. Each year this new award — and the only FUHSD award named for an individual — will be given to a FUHSD team that exemplifies the best in collaboration and achievement.
