Leaders are held to high standards. However, the leader in Clovis Unified also has to be a relationship builder. Slogans like, ‘It’s people not programs’ require Clovis Unified leaders to be listeners, team players and kind – all within a very focused and high performing organization.
Walt Buster, Ed.D.
Superintendent 1995 – 2002
Leadership is both a science and an art. It’s the science of creating and articulating organizational vision, core values and standards. It’s also the art of building relationships…. Leaders must remember that they are in the people business, and effective leaders are those who work daily to build strong and positive relationships with the people who make up the school district. Historically, Clovis Unified has taken care of its people (students, staff and families) and, in turn, these very people have helped take care of Clovis Unified.
Janet Young, Ed.D.
Superintendent 2011 – 2017
