Kindergarten registration for 2014-15 started March 5
Kindergarten registration for the 2014-15 school year is being held daily as of Wednesday, March 5 during regular school hours at all CUSD elementary schools. To be eligible to register for traditional kindergarten, a child must reach 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1, 2014. Children whose fifth birthday falls between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2, 2014, can enroll in CUSD’s transitional kindergarten program, as these students are not eligible for traditional kindergarten for the 2014-15 school year.

New elementary student registration begins March 12
New students who will be attending elementary school in grades one through six may begin registering for the 2014-15 school year as of Wednesday, March 12, 2014. Parents and guardians should register their students at the school they will be attending for the 2014-15 school year. If you do not know which school that would be, please enter your address in the “What School Would My Child Attend” feature in the “Quick Links” drop down menu on the right side of this home page.

Shorts can now be worn on CUSD campuses year-round
On January 15, 2014, the Clovis Unified Governing Board accepted the recommendation of student members of the Inter School Council and the administration to end its seasonal restriction on the wearing of shorts by students. Members of the Board, in approving this recommendation, affirmed their continued support for the safety and behavior standards set by the District’s dress code; while agreeing that the area’s mild temperatures and the existing provision for allowing shorts during portions of the school year made this slight revision sensible. All other elements of the District’s dress code remain the same. This revision took effect with the start of the second semester of the 2013-14 school year.
How do revised content standards affect students?
As Clovis Unified continues working toward implementing California's revised content standards across the district, information will be provided regularly on the District's website, at parent meetings, in CUSD Today, and through individual schools. For more information about how the revised standards will impact students, and answers to frequently asked questions, visit the Curriculum and Instruction Department page of our website.
