Doc Buchanan Leadership Academy

Home  \  Programs  \  Doc Buchanan Leaders...
The Floyd B. “Doc” Buchanan Fund was established in 1981 to honor the District’s first and long-time Superintendent, and the educational philosophies developed during his tenure. Today, the Foundation for Clovis Schools is engaged in a partnership with the Clovis Unified School District to develop current and future leaders whose decision-making is grounded in the core values and educational beliefs that have contributed to the District’s success over time. The Doc Buchanan Leadership Academy is an intentional leadership development program to sustain high standards and keep student-centered decision-making as a hallmark of Clovis Unified into the future. Resources to support this endeavor are provided by the Foundation for Clovis Schools’ Doc Buchanan Fund.

Leaders in Clovis Unified learn to make decisions founded in these core philosophies:
  • Students are at the center of every decision
  • Hiring is the most important thing we do
  • Autonomy with responsibility
  • Know your job, do your job
  • Ride for the brand
  • Competition is a key ingredient of high standards
  • Lead through relationships
  • Courage to confront disagreement and issues
  • High standards
  • Monitoring systems are essential to accomplish goals
  • Education is a partnership between the schools and the community

Additional Clovis Unified leadership resources can be found on Clovis Unified's Leadership Training page.
