The California Healthy Kids Survey will be administered by the Fowler Unified School District to students in grades 5, 7, 9 and 11. School sites will determine exact dates for students to take the survey. The survey provides schools and districts with important information used to evaluate the type of supports and programs needed to promote the general health, well-being and academic learning for all students.

 The District conducts the survey using strict guidelines to preserve student privacy, data confidentiality, and all other student and parent rights. Letters, with grade specific survey information, will be sent home to the parents of students in grades 5, 7, 9 and 11 prior to survey administration dates. On March 1st, copies of the survey will be available for families to preview on the district's website at survey page or families may view a hard copy of the survey located in your child’s school office.

Construction to Begin on Bond Projects

posted Jan 20, 2017, 3:07 PM by Susan Stewart   [ updated Jan 20, 2017, 3:10 PM ]

Construction will begin soon on a number of projects in Fowler Unified School District, highlighted by the new District pool at Fowler High School. Demolition and mobilization will start in late June on the new, 9-lane pool that is scheduled to be completed in April, 2018. The District’s All-Weather Track will be resurfaced this summer – adding new striping and painting – and new, energy-efficient lighting will be constructed at the track, replacing the current light poles. Construction of the new lights and poles should be finished in the fall.

The entire Sutter Middle School campus will be repainted in July – keeping with the same grey and red exterior colors – and the Fowler High School campus will have the exterior trim painted in July as well. In addition, Sutter Middle School and Fowler High School will be adding modular classrooms – two at each school – to manage increases in enrollment. Installation of the classrooms will take place over the summer months and will be ready for the start of the 2017/2018 school year. Funds from the recently passed Fowler Unified School Construction Bond, Measure “J” – along with state grant funds and developer fees – will be used to finance these projects. 

Measure "J" Bond Information

The Fowler Unified School District Facilities Bond Measure – Measure J – overwhelmingly passed with over 78% in support.  Thank you to the communities of Fowler/Malaga for your support of our schools and students.
The District is eligible to sell $8 million dollars in the first series of bond sales in June, 2017, for the first phase of projects which includes:  1. District pool,   2. All-weather track resurfacing and lighting,   3. Fowler High School Ag Farm Facility,   4. Widening of Walter Avenue from Sutter School to Temperance Avenue,   5. Painting of Sutter and Fowler High and  6. Replacement of play equipment at Malaga, Marshall and Fremont Elementary schools.  These projects, as part of the first phase of construction, are estimated to be completed within the next 4-5 years, with several projects starting this summer.

The next time the District will be eligible to sell bonds will be approximately 4-5 years from now, which will be for Phase II projects which are highlighted by the Band/Performing Arts Multi-Purpose Facility at Fowler High. Other phases of construction, which may be eligible for state funds of up to 50% of construction costs include:  the modernization of Malaga, Marshall, and Fremont schools as well as construction of a new elementary school.  These projects are estimated to take place within approximately the next 12 years as part of the $42 million Measure J Bond.

Thank you again for supporting Measure J and the students of Fowler Unified School District.

Fowler Unified State Test Scores Show Growth

posted Aug 30, 2016, 4:48 PM by Susan Stewart

Fowler Unified School District students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 annually take the Smarter Balanced On-Line State Assessment.  Results from 2016 showed growth in both English Language Arts (2% growth) and Math (5% growth) district wide.

Highlights include significant growth of students meeting or exceeding state standards:

  • Fowler High School - 73% of students met or exceeded 11th grade state standards in English Language Arts (ELA).  (This percentage is among the highest in Fresno County with only Buchanan, Clovis North and Clovis High School scoring higher.)

  • Sutter Middle School - growth of 14% in Math for 6th grade

  • Fremont/Malaga Elementary Schools - 3rd grade ELA growth of 16% and Math growth of 15%

  • Fremont/Malaga Elementary Schools - 5th grade ELA growth of 12%

This outstanding academic achievement is reflective of the K-12 educational program and experience at all schools in the Fowler Unified School District.

State test scores are only one measure of student achievement as there are also several other measures of academic and school performance.  Students and teachers throughout Fowler Unified School District are to be congratulated for the continued academic growth as schools in the District strive for continuous improvement.
