Since Jan. 26, we have heard from hundreds of parents and community members with feedback on potential attendance boundary updates. We greatly appreciate how engaged our families have been in this process; the number of people who have attended meetings, submitted comments and sat down for conversations with district leaders around this study; and their questions and concerns about the implications of possible change.
 
Feedback, suggestions and alternative maps gathered through community meetings and our online comment form have been analyzed and discussed with the district-wide attendance boundary study planning committee, district leadership and the Governing Board.

As a result of this work, a third scenario (Silver) is available for comment by our community. A final attendance area map recommendation is still expected by March 29.
 
Following the final recommendation release at the end of March, the Governing Board will discuss and take action on the recommendation at their meetings in April. Once adopted, new school attendance boundaries will not take effect until more than a year from now in August 2025.
 
The Silver Scenario continues to keep as its goals:
  • Create the first classes (grades 7-9) of the Terry P. Bradley Educational Center opening in 2025 and establish the attendance area for this new secondary campus
  • Balance enrollment to ensure we maximize existing school capacity, and avoid over- or under-enrolled schools
  • Avoid building new schools until they are absolutely necessary to address growth in the cities of Fresno and Clovis
The new scenario builds on the two scenarios released in late January and includes changes that reflect an analysis of community feedback to this point while still achieving the goals of the study mentioned above. Wherever possible, the newly released scenario attempts to address requests to:
  • Minimize the number of students impacted by proposed moves 
  • Use future development areas to balance enrollment and minimize the impact to existing homeowners
  • Attempt to keep whole neighborhoods together rather than moving them to two or more different schools in instances where a neighborhood (rather than whole school) move is proposed
  • Refine areas of the map where study areas split houses that are across a residential street from each other
  • Further minimize the number of neighborhoods moved to achieve balanced enrollment
Community feedback we’ve received about requests to expand access to transfers and/or extend options for students wishing to remain at their existing schools are still being analyzed against the goals of the study. When a final recommendation is released in late March, more information about the extent to which the district can make accommodations to address that feedback will be available.
 
The third scenario will be discussed at upcoming school SART/Parent meetings and we encourage you to watch for more information from your local school for the date and time of meetings in your area. Click here to view the Silver Scenario.
 
The list below is meant to define the differences proposed in the Silver Scenario that are not proposed in Scenario 1 or A.   Please keep in mind that if no changes exist between what was proposed in earlier scenarios and now in Silver, they are not singled out here. 

Where no specific explanation of the rationale behind a proposed change is listed: The change was identified as the optimal solution to address the goals of the study based on geographic area relative to areas of future growth or declining enrollment, and the number of students generated by the study area.
 
School Area
Silver Scenario Where it Differs from Scenarios 1 and/or A
No new areas outside of one as-yet-undeveloped area near Miramonte Elementary
are a part of the Silver Scenario
Buchanan High
Century:
155A/B - Follows Scenario 1
143B/C - Follows Scenario A
Dry Creek:
331A - Follows Scenario 1
HWY 168 Triangle Area - Follows Scenario A
165B - Follows 1/A
No longer proposed to lose to Bud Rank (331A) or to lose to Cedarwood (Area south of Hwy 168 to Herndon), continues to have southwest area (165B) moving to Century.  Enrollment stays near capacity. After updating development projections and considering feedback on neighborhood layout, we can wait on making some of the initially proposed changes to minimize the number of moves proposed. We will have to watch development in the area closely to monitor pace of growth and be prepared to adjust should that development happen more quickly than expected in advance of a new school opening in the Heritage Grove area.
Garfield: No longer proposed to gain from Woods (131B/C) as we attempt to minimize the number of moves to balance enrollment and after adjusting for changes and re-running enrollment projections can achieve balanced enrollment for the next several years without moving this study area. It also allows enrollment to remain balanced over time.
Tarpey: Follows Scenario A
Woods: No longer proposed to lose 131B/C to Garfield given attempts to minimize the number of moves used to balance enrollment.
Clovis High
Cedarwood: Follows Scenario A.
Clovis Elementary: No longer proposed to gain 245 from Red Bank after reviewing community feedback and updating enrollment projections it is possible to maintain balanced enrollment without this move. 
Mickey Cox: No changes
Jefferson: Follows 1/A
Red Bank: No longer proposed to lose 245 to Clovis Elementary for above reasons and given the close proximity to this neighborhood and its relative location to the two schools. 
Sierra Vista: Follows Scenario A
Weldon: Follows 1/A
Clovis East High
Freedom: No longer proposed to lose to Gettysburg (268B/C) with updated enrollment projections showing balanced enrollment in the 3-5 year range. If the pace of development changes rapidly in this area, however, we would need to reassess in the future.
Gettysburg: No longer proposed to lose to Freedom (268B/C) with updated enrollment projections showing balanced enrollment in the 3-5 year range. If the pace of development changes rapidly in this area, however, we would need to reassess in the future.
Miramonte: No longer proposed to gain 281A/B from Oraze, instead proposed to gain a not-yet developed area 281D, 283AA from Oraze as we seek to decrease the number of existing homes being moved. Enrollment can allow for this decrease to Oraze and increase to Miramonte to occur later after the newly developed area is completed.
Oraze: No longer proposed to lose 281A/B to Miramonte, instead proposed to lose a not-yet developed area 281D, 283AA to Miramonte as we seek to decrease the number of existing homes being moved.  Enrollment can allow for this decrease to Oraze and increase to Miramonte to occur later after the newly developed area is completed.
Clovis North High
Copper Hills: Follows Scenario 1
Bud Rank: Follows Scenario 1 
Fugman: Follows Scenario 1
Mountain View: No changes
Riverview: We must still move some area out of Riverview to allow for growth in the immediate out-years and to boost enrollment at Maple Creek soon. However, to keep all neighborhoods leaving Riverview together, this scenario keeps 85, 86 and 87, 88 together moving to Maple Creek.
Clovis West High
Fort Washington: Proposed to gain from Valley Oak (66, 67A, 71A) instead of from Liberty: minimizes number of moves needed to increase Fort Washington’s attendance.
Liberty: No longer proposed to lose south of Shepherd (40A, 48A/B, 128A) and not proposed to gain additional from Riverview (85, 86). Because of adjusting the Riverview moves to keep neighborhoods together, we were able to avoid this move and still balance enrollment in Liberty.
Maple Creek: Proposed to gain 85-86 from Riverview in addition to 87-88 as a result of our effort to minimize the number of changes and maintain existing neighborhoods moving out of Riverview so that they stay together at Maple Creek. Those moves allow us to provide immediate enrollment increases to Maple Creek. 
Valley Oak: No longer loses to Liberty (71A) but loses some areas (66, 67, 67A) to Fort Washington as we sought ways to minimize the total number of moves proposed but still provide Valley Oak with future growth due to projections of low enrollment. 
Lincoln:
 No changes
Nelson:
 No changes
Pinedale:
 No changes
Clovis South High
Boris:
 No elementary changes. High school move to Clovis South area.
Fancher Creek:
No elementary changes. High school move to Clovis South area.
Hirayama:
No elementary changes. High school move to Clovis South area.
Temperance-Kutner:
 No elementary changes. High school move to Clovis South area. 
Young:
 No elementary changes. High school move to Clovis South area. 

The written information below pertains to Scenarios 1 and A.

Buchanan Area Changes

As of Jan. 26, in either or both Scenarios 1 and A:
  • Tarpey is proposed (only in Scenario 1) to grow into the very southern area of Sierra Vista Elementary’s current
    attendance boundary, with students attending Tarpey continuing to attend Alta Sierra Intermediate and Buchanan High
    School as their secondary schools.
  • What is now a portion of the Dry Creek attendance area south of Highway 168 would in Scenario 1 shift into the
    Cedarwood Area. This proposed change would constitute a change in the high school feeder system as well for students moving from Dry Creek to Cedarwood. Dry Creek is proposed in both scenarios to have a portion of its southwest boundary shift to Century. And in Scenario A, a portion of its northeast boundary move to Clovis North Area’s Bud Rank.
  • Century, in addition to adding a portion of the current Dry Creek boundary in Scenario 1, could see the most northern
    section of its attendance area shift to Woods under Scenario 1.
  • Woods, in Scenario A would grow into a portion of the existing Century attendance area to the east. In Scenario A a
    small portion of its western boundary would also move to Garfield.
  • Garfield in both scenarios has some changes proposed in its northern areas between Teague and Shepherd.

Clovis High Area Changes

As of Jan. 26, in either or both Scenarios 1 and A:
  • Gettysburg - in both scenarios is proposed to move into the Clovis East High School feeder system as population continues to grow in the southern parts of the district. Gettysburg’s attendance area is suggested to grow to include a portion of Freedom Elementary’s existing southwest boundary.
  • Sierra Vista is proposed to grow to add the current southern portion of Cole’s existing boundary south of Barstow as well as a small portion of Weldon’s southern boundary.
  • Jefferson would grow to include the portion of Clovis Elementary’s current boundary bounded by Fowler and Sunnyside south of Bullard.
  • Weldon Elementary would add the far western portion of Clovis Elementary’s current boundary while shifting some southerly neighborhoods to Sierra Vista.
  • In addition to the above-described change to the Clovis Elementary boundary, a portion of the existing Red Bank and Cedarwood areas would move to the Clovis Elementary area.
  • Red Bank’s attendance area would shift to the east into the existing Cedarwood attendance area east of Leonard Ave. in addition to the change described above.
  • Cedarwood, in addition to the changes proposed to its southern border, would in Scenario 1 grow to the north of Herndon, adding what is now a portion of the Dry Creek attendance area south of Highway 168. This proposed change would constitute a change in the high school feeder system as well for students moving from Dry Creek to Cedarwood.

Clovis East Area Changes

As of Jan. 26, in either or both Scenarios 1 and A:
  • Miramonte is proposed to grow into a small portion of the northwest corner of the existing Oraze attendance
    area in both scenarios with the size of the proposed change differing slightly between Scenarios A and 1.
  • Freedom’s existing southwest boundary is proposed to move to Gettysburg’s attendance area. Gettysburg is
    proposed to move into the Clovis East Area.
  • The current attendance areas for Boris, Fancher Creek, Temperance-Kutner, Young and the new Hirayama
    Elementary would become the new Clovis South Area which includes the Terry P. Bradley Educational Center.

Clovis North Area Changes

As of Jan. 26, in either or both Scenarios 1 and A:
  • Bud Rank (in Scenario A, the Bud Rank boundary is proposed to grow to include a small area currently in the Dry Creek
    attendance area but is otherwise unchanged).
  • Portions of Riverview would shift into either Maple Creek or Liberty to some degree in both Scenario I and A.
  • A portion of the eastern edge of the existing Copper Hills boundary just north of Shepherd Ave. would move to Liberty
    Elementary. Liberty students feed into Clovis West High School.
  • Copper Hills’ boundary would shift north into what is now the Fugman area near Copper and Willow with minor
    differences between Scenario 1 and Scenario A in this area.

Clovis West Area Changes

As of Jan. 26, in either or both Scenarios 1 and A:
  • Fort Washington would grow to include the current Liberty area just south of Shepherd.
  • Maple Creek also is proposed to see its northern boundaries modified to adjust for growth happening in Clovis’ Heritage Grove area. Parts of Garfield’s (in Scenario 1) and Riverview’s current attendance areas near Shepherd shift into the Maple Creek boundary, along with (in Scenarios 1 & A) part of the current Liberty boundary near Maple and Shepherd.
  • In addition to the change above, in both scenarios Liberty’s boundary grows into the southwest corner of Riverview. Areas proposed to move into Liberty or Maple Creek would move into the Clovis West Area.
  • In addition to the above-described changes, Liberty would increase into the southeastern boundary of Valley Oak as well as easterly into the existing Copper Hills area just north of Shepherd. Liberty students feed into Clovis West High School.
  • Valley Oak’s attendance area, in addition to what is described above, would expand to the Millerton New Town Area now feeding into Liberty.

Overview

The opening of Clovis Unified’s newest high school area and the Terry P. Bradley Educational Center in August of 2025 means changes will be coming to student attendance boundaries for several Clovis Unified schools. Public meetings and opportunities for community input will begin in late January 2024, a decision on new attendance boundaries will follow in April 2024 and those new attendance boundaries will take effect with the 2025-26 school year.

During the fall of 2023, a steering committee of approximately 50 Clovis Unified employees from across schools and support departments has been working to research city planning decisions, residential development forecasts, census data and enrollment projections to develop maps for consideration. Their work is guided by defined purposes (in no particular order) to: 
  • Maximize facility space while moving as few students as possible, 
  • Value neighborhood schools and keep neighborhoods together, 
  • Reduce operational expenses, 
  • Create boundaries that will last for 5-10 years whenever possible, and 
  • Balance enrollment across high school areas.
Initial findings by the committee show that schools in the Clovis East Area and some in the Clovis High Area are currently overcrowded, and likely some of those students will become part of the new Clovis South Area. On the opposite side of the district, data shows that most schools in the Clovis West Area have seats available, while several schools in the nearby Clovis North Area and Buchanan Area are at or above capacity. Clovis Unified’s close to 200-square-mile boundaries extend south to Kings Canyon Boulevard and north to the edge of Millerton Lake and includes most of the city of Clovis, 20% of the city of Fresno and a small portion of unincorporated Fresno County.

While the driving force behind the review is the addition of the Terry P. Bradley Educational Center at Highland Avenue and the Clinton Avenue Alignment in Fresno – a campus that will house Clovis South High School and a yet-to-be-named intermediate school – the committee’s boundary review includes looking at all district schools in terms of capacity and recommending adjustments to create more efficient use of schools that are under capacity while easing crowding at those that are over capacity.
 

“We know boundary changes are hard and can cause stress, but I want to reassure our Clovis Unified families that all our schools are special. Our educational team holds tightly to our district values around high standards and having a contagious school spirit which is found at every one of our schools and areas.” 

CUSD Superintendent Corrine Folmer, Ed.D.
