SART / PULSE

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.

Find out what is happening in SART at Valley Oak by attending our monthly meetings and or reviewing the agendas and meeting minutes below.
