Area Updates

Clovis West Area – A lot of yard signs up in the Clovis West Area.  Also have seen an increase in social median traffic of sharing, liking and posting facts.

Clovis North Area – Signs are up. Promoting social media.  Meeting with PTCs and parent groups.

Clovis East Area – Our teams continue to be motivated by the social media challenge! Lots of “friendly competition” and social media posts from staff. SART meetings happened this week and our factual presentations were well received by parents with good questions! All signs passed out and we see them in our neighborhoods. 

Buchanan Area - Sites are continuing to push via school social media as well as personal social media.  BHS area hosted a SART meeting this week where Measure A was a topic of discussion and the impact of not passing this bond was shared.  Great discussion took place between the parents and administrators.  It appears that parents seem more equipped with knowledge this time and support appears to be up.  

CHS Area - The CHS area has made a commitment that every parent at each school is fully informed on the 2 items each school will get (door locks & air filtration).  As such, social media and other school communication is being utilized to inform and direct families to our district website
