What is IDAC?

Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC) is composed of school site parents that participate at site and district level climate assessment/problem-solving meetings. The primary purpose of the Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC), originally formed in 1988 as the Intercultural Advisory Council, is to assist in the formation and review of policies that assure non-discriminatory practices in all operational areas of the Clovis Unified School District. Its further mission is to assist in improving the cultural environment of the District.  These parent groups, which are at every school site, assist in the formation and review of twelve cultural competency focus areas.  Each school highlights via a website three focus areas each year.  Direct links are available below.  For additional information please contact your school site Principal.
