Clovis Unified School District has released two draft proposals for new district boundaries as its latest high school is under construction.
Since the proposals are just drafts at this point, they give district residents an opportunity to see what the new district boundaries could possibly be.
Driving the news: Clovis Unified is currently building the Terry P. Bradley Education Center, which is scheduled to open in August 2025.
- The Terry P. Bradley Education Center is located at Highland Ave. and the Clinton Ave. Alignment in Fresno.
- It will contain Clovis South High School and a new intermediate school, with students in grades seven through nine starting in the fall of 2025, adding a grade level each year until fully operational by 2028.
The big picture: CUSD released two proposals ahead of several community meetings that will take place over the following weeks.
- Those community meetings start with one at Clovis East High School on Jan. 30 at 5:30 p.m. and end with one at Clovis North High School on Feb. 8 at 5:30 p.m. A full list of the meetings can be found at CUSD’s website.
What we’re watching: The district will release a final proposed map on March 29, and the CUSD Governing Board will review it and consider its approval in April.
- The new map would not take effect until the fall of 2025.
What they’re saying: “We know boundary changes are hard and can cause stress, but I want to reassure our Clovis Unified families that all our schools are special,” said CUSD Superintendent Corrine Folmer. “Our educational team holds tightly to our district values around high standards and having a contagious school spirit which is found at every one of our schools and areas.”
