As a Clovis resident, businessman, and proud
parent of three Clovis Unified graduates and one current Clovis Unified student,
I am a huge supporter of this district and the people who make it what it is.
Educators and community members alike willingly invest their time, talent and
resources to create the unique and special district that is Clovis Unified.
You would never know it when you walk onto one
of our beautiful campuses or watch a game or performance at one of our
state-of-the-art facilities, but Clovis Unified is doing a lot with much less
than our neighbors every year. In the 2018-2019 school year, Clovis Unified
received an average of $2,554 less per student than other school districts in
Fresno County. If Clovis Unified received the average of other Fresno County
school districts, there would be $110 million more to spend on our students
each year. Imagine what that additional
funding could do to support learning in Clovis Unified!
This is exactly why the Foundation for Clovis
Schools was established in 1986: To ensure that Clovis Unified students always
have the resources needed to excel, and to stand in the gap created by these
funding inequities. The Foundation is eagerly continuing this work today
through its various programs, scholarships and grants. On behalf of the
Foundation Board of Directors, thank you for
supporting Clovis Unified and the Foundation for Clovis Schools.
