Parent Committees

Home  \  Parents  \  Parent Committees
Utilization of parent input is offered through a number of forums 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 all of the following below.
 

Parent Teacher Club

What is Parent Teacher Club?
The Parent Teacher Club is a non-profit organization of parents, guardians, teachers, students, and staff at our school site. Our mission is to plan community events to raise money to support the programs and educational experience that sets our school apart from the rest.

What does membership entail?
Membership is a great way to ensure future quality academic and co-curricular programs. Your membership requires no commitment of time or meeting attendance. We encourage you to take an active role in the education of our rising generation by joining the PTC!



School Site Council

All schools receiving categorical funds are required to form a School Site Council (SSC). The SSC is composed of parents and school personnel and is responsible for developing, implementing and evaluating the Single Plan for Student Achievement programs. Members serve two years and are elected by their peers.
 
For additional information about Dry Creek's SSC, please contact Misty Sedehi or Caleb Hatfield by phone (327-6500).

SART

School Assessment and Review Team (SART):  
Apart from the traditional school site council and parent club, a body called the School Assessment and Review Team (SART) 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. Dry Creek SART meetings are held quarterly and are open to everyone in the Dry Creek community. In addition to quarterly meetings, our SART committee processes an annual parent survey. SART members also conduct clean campus inspections seven times each year. Meeting dates and times are announced in the Panther Express and are posted on our home page.

IDAC

 Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC): draws members from parents to represent our school at district level climate assessment/problem-solving meetings. The primary purpose of the Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC), originally formed in 1988 as the Intercultural Advisory Council, is to assist in the formation and review of policies that assure non-discriminatory practices in all operational areas of the Clovis Unified School District. Its further mission is to assist in improving the cultural environment of the District.  In 1988, Dr. Burton and associates conducted a study of the status of Clovis Unified School District with respect to racial/cultural discrimination and human relations.  The report of findings from that study enumerated six specific recommendations for improving the multicultural climate of the district.  The report also called for the establishment of a District Advisory Committee composed of community members and district employees representing the diversity of the district.

Accordingly, the Intercultural and Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC) was formed for the purpose of assisting the district in the implementation of the six recommendations from the "Burton Report" and monitoring the progress of the district toward achieving the desired outcomes of those recommendations.  Reporting to the Governing Board annually is among IDAC's charges.  A CUSD District Steering Committee which is comprised of a variety of stakeholders form across the district meets monthly to review recommendations, goals and current practices as they relate to cultural competencies.  The Steering Committee works with Human Resources to monitor hiring practices, training opportunities, best practices at the school sites and set priorities. 

The Dry Creek IDAC meets quarterly. Meeting dates are announced in the Panther Expressand on the Dry Creek IDAC page -
