Welcome to Dr. Janet L. Young Elementary School!

A new elementary school will soon be opening near Shields and Locan avenues in southeast Clovis, prompting the start of efforts to adjust elementary school boundaries in the Clovis East area.  The school is needed to keep pace with rapidly growing residential development in the area.  November marks the start of a process designed to gather parent input, develop options for possible school boundaries, and ultimately make a recommendation on new school attendance lines to the Governing Board in February 2019.  The school is scheduled to open August of 2020.

 
 
The Board, in a unanimous vote, then approved a recommendation to name the new school Dr. Janet L. Young Elementary.  In a survey last fall, community members asked that the school be named for an individual who reflects the educational culture of Clovis Unified, its aims and core values, and who embraces diversity, exemplifies the pillars of CHARACTER COUNTS! and has made a positive impact on the community and education.  After careful deliberation of multiple names, former Clovis Unified Superintendent Janet Young, Ed.D. was selected as an individual who exemplifies these characteristics. According to several members of the Board in their comments at the meeting, as a long-time elementary school teacher, and an educational leader who advocated for all students and regularly promoted to CUSD employees the importance of caring, Dr. Young was a natural choice to be the school’s namesake. For more information and news leading up to the boundary study, please visit the  2020 Elementary School Boundary Study page
