This Is How Fresno Unified Can Vault to the Top

Fresno’s future depends on Fresno Unified School District. Its 74,000 students are the biggest part of our future workforce. If Fresno Unified fails, we all suffer the consequences: Less prosperity, more blighted and unsafe neighborhoods, a lower quality of life.

The district faces many challenges. Nearly 90% of district students are disadvantaged. One in five is learning to speak and read English. One in 10 has a disability. Do you know that nearly 1,650 district children are homeless? About 630 more are foster youth.
