BOARD OF TRUSTEES
On behalf of the board of trustees, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Cloverdale Unified School District. The Cloverdale Unified School District serves approximately 1400 students at its five schools: Jefferson Elementary (K-4), Washington School (5-8), Cloverdale High School (9-12), Eagle Creek Community Day School (9-10), and Johanna Echols-Hansen Continuation High School (11-12).
We are a District who prides itself on ensuring that our students are ready to tackle any challenge put in front of them. We are proud to offer our students fantastic teachers who are knowledgeable, compassionate, and forward thinking. We also provide our students numerous forms of technology to prepare them for a world that is constantly changing. In addition, our class offerings are numerous, and ever growing. At Jefferson Elementary and Washington School, we will be implementing a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) program beginning in the 2015-16 school year. Through this program our students will get early exposure to enrichment classes centered around Art, Computer Programming, Engineering, and Music. We believe these classes are essential to molding a well-rounded individual. We also currently offer a number of exciting classes at our comprehensive High School including: Multimedia/Animation, Digital Photography/Web Page Design, Culinary Arts, Drama, and Art. We will be expanding our course offerings over the next few years to potentially include Forensic Science, Vineyard Management, Video Game Design, and Project Make-Engineering.
We have undergone a transformation of sorts due to the passage of the Measure G bond in 2011. Our classrooms have received new ceilings, flooring, lighting, tackable wall surfacing, and interior paint. In addition, the windows have been replaced at all of the school sites to reduce the District’s energy use footprint. We have purchased technology, and upgraded our infrastructure so the technology can be utilized properly. The Cloverdale High School football field has been improved with the addition of beautiful new bleachers. Also at the High School, we have installed new cabinets and countertops in the science room, and the hallways have been upgraded with the painting of the lockers.
…and we aren’t done yet! We are still planning to reduce our water footprint through the upgrading of our irrigation systems, and landscaping with drought tolerant plants. Finally, we are planning to install solar panels at Washington school, and put up new marquees for each school site.
Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the amazing community support that exists in Cloverdale. You will be hard pressed to find a community that supports their school district like our own. Through the Kiwanis, Lions, and Rotary Clubs, CARE foundation, or the person walking down the street, you will find a support network like nowhere else. I encourage you to visit our schools, and be involved in your child’s education in any way that you can. Our partnership is an essential component in preparing your child for the world that awaits them upon graduating from High School.
My office is always open to you, and I look forward to working with you in the coming years.
