Parent Academy

CUSD Parent Nights are offered to parents district-wide and have a goal of supporting parents on how to foster a lasting, positive educational environment and school partnership for their children both at home and at school through proven activities and lessons. 

For the 24-25 school year, Supplemental Services is partnering with our High School transition teams to offer Parent Nights throughout the school year on topics that were chosen based on parent feedback. 

These parent events are critical as they help to foster relationships between parents and the district and offer opportunities for collaboration. 

This year, for all but two of the parent nights, we will also be offering:

  • Supervised childcare for all school-age children of participating parents.  
  • Participants will be provided with a light dinner and refreshments at each Parent Academy (please make sure to register so we have enough food)
  • Translation support can be offered in multiple languages as needed by Clovis Unified Bilingual Assistant Aides.
