Parent Committees

Home  \  Students & Parents  \  Parent Committees

Utilization of parent input is offered through a number of forums at our school, including site and community booster organization groups to ensure a diverse representation. These groups allow for on-going dialogue to take place between school staff and parents. These groups include: 
 
English  Language  Advisory  Committee  (ELAC): All schools enrolling 21 or more English Learners are required to form an ELAC. The ELAC is composed of parents  and  school  personnel.  The  ELAC  provides input  and makes  recommendations  to the principal, staff and SSC regarding services for English Learners as  well  as  conducts  an  annual  survey.    Members serve for two years. 

District English Language Advisory Committee (DELAC):     Whenever   there  are  51  or  more  EL students in the district, there shall be a functioning District  English  Learner  Advisory  Committee (DELAC).   It is important that each school site ELAC elect  a DELAC  representative  and arrange  to have that representative attend every DELAC meeting. Currently the DELAC bylaws require each DELAC representative to be 1) a parent/guardian of an EL or former EL (i.e., a reclassified fluent English proficient student)  currently  enrolled  at  the  site  he/she represents, and 2) elected to serve as the DELAC representative by the site ELAC. 
DATES to be announced

School Site Council (SSC): All schools receiving categorical funds are required to form a School Site Council (SSC). The SSC is composed of parents, students and school personnel and is responsible for developing, implementing and evaluating the Single Plan for Student Achievement programs. Members serve for two years and are elected by their peers. 
 
Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC):  draws members from parents to represent our school at district level climate assessment/problem-solving meetings.

Athletic/Pep & Cheer Booster Groups:  Football Boosters, Baseball Boosters, Boys’ and Girls’ Soccer Boosters, Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball Boosters, Wrestling Boosters, Boys’ and Girls’ Volleyball Boosters, Cross Country/Track Boosters, Boys’ and Girls’ Water Polo/Swimming Boosters, Boys’ and Girls’ Tennis Boosters, and Pep & Cheer Boosters primary functions are to fundraise for students involved in athletics.

School Assessment and Review Team (SART)

At Clovis Unified, parents and community members are active participants in decision-making processing and in evaluating the quality of programs serving their children. Apart from the traditional school site council and parent club, a body called the School Assessment and Review Team exists to provide a forum to learn about a school and to influence the leadership regarding the operation of the school. Each Clovis Unified school has a SART committee, which serves as a vehicle of communication and as an advisory body to the principal.

The school SART committee includes broad representation, including the principal, selected staff members, interested parents and community members, students and even citizens who do not have children at the school. Within the District, there are three area SART Committees. Members of the Area SART Committees include area assistant superintendents, area principals and area school SART chairpersons.

There is also a District SART Committee whose members include the district superintendent, administrators, principals and School SART Committee chairpersons. Each year a survey of parents is conducted to provide insight to parent satisfaction and perception, as well as provide valuable data about students, their home learning environment and expectations.

Buchanan High School and Alta Sierra Intermediate School SART Meeting dates are listed below for the 2017-18 school year. They are held once a month on Wednesday at 8:30 AM location TBA.
