Welcome to the Cloverdale Unified School District Website. Cloverdale Unified serves 1467 Pre-K through 12th graders at three main sites; Jefferson (Pre-K-4th), Washington (5th-8th), Cloverdale High School (9th-12th) and one alternative site, Johanna Echols-Hansen Continuation High School. On behalf of our District Office Team and the Board of Education I invite you to explore our site and glimpse the tradition of great accomplishments that characterizes our community and all of our schools.
All of our facilities are becoming modernized and technologically equipped to serve as safe and inviting schools that promote active learning in a rich environment through the passage of Measure G, general obligation bond last fall. Our professional staff is committed to ensuring student success. Recent celebrations include:
· 10 out of 10 ranking for similar schools at Cloverdale High School
· Cloverdale High School 6 year WASC accreditation
· Washington School ROP Career Grant
· Washington School Challenge Day
· Washington and Jefferson Schools ACES and 21st Century Grants for after school programs that provide academic interventions
· Jefferson School’s CST scores continue to rise
· Jefferson’s Friday Fun/Fine Arts Days support whole child learning
Such successes are attributable to the extraordinary efforts of our highly qualified teachers, exemplary principals, dedicated support personnel, numerous parent and community volunteers and strong instructional leaders in our schools.
Cloverdale Unified has fully implemented the PLC (Professional Learning Community) model. We use 4 questions to guide all of our work to educate your child.
1. What do we want all students to learn?
2. How will we know they’ve learned it?
3. How will we engage all students in relevant learning?
4. What will we do if they do/don’t learn it?
Our student achievement plan, Building on Student Success, provides a template for student learning. It has been used as a model for districts throughout California. The paradigm in this district has shifted from “what teachers teach” to “student learning”. Ask around Sonoma County. We are known as an innovative district with the best interests of students in mind and a “can do” attitude.
