"Clovis Unified leaders are stewards of a legacy of high standards for our students, for our teams and for ourselves. By placing the needs of our kids at the center of every decision, we have been able to consistently achieve those high standards over time."
Eimear O’Brien, Ed.D.
Send the Right Message
When something is broken fix it fast, fix it well and fix it right.
It’s a simple philosophy, but one that sprang from a time when school buildings in the youthful Clovis Unified were haphazardly maintained, surrounded by barbed wire-topped fences, and closed on the weekends. Early leaders saw that our schools were sending the wrong message to students and to the community – one that education doesn’t matter, and if we can’t be bothered to keep their classrooms in good repair, why should students treat their own learning seriously?
Those Clovis Unified leaders immediately established standards to act quickly to address vandalism or other facility problems, most often before kids arrive on campus. Today, leaders understand the role of high quality, well-maintained facilities that welcome kids and the community. Leaders support bond measures that create resources to promote learning for students at every school in the district. Appearance sends a message, and the message we want to send is one of pride in the community’s schools.
