A question many in the community ask . . . Why a district-wide foundation?

One of Clovis Unified’s greatest challenges is informing the general public that we are not a rich school district. Because people see our new, beautiful facilities, there is a perception that the district is “wealthy” and that our schools have all the resources they need.

This perception has grown because we have been blessed with a community that has passed bond measures to provide first-class campuses and classrooms. However, these bond funds must be used only for building and renovating schools and cannot be used for materials, equipment, hiring teachers and other operating expenses. Some of us like to say “we are facilities rich but operations poor.”
