Clovis High School earned the designation of a No Place for Hate school through the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The ADL’s No Place for Hate initiative seeks to provide a framework to “combat bias, bullying and hatred,” in order to achieve a “long-term solution for creating and maintaining a positive climate,” in PreK-12 schools (ADL 2017). The administration, staff, and students of Clovis High worked together to host intentional activities in our established Family Groups (read more about family groups here) as well as through additional school-wide activities. Teachers were trained and delivered these lessons to foster an inclusive and safe community where all students feel respected and are given the opportunity to thrive on campus.
In keeping with Clovis Unified’s core values of “educating students to reach their potential in mind, body, and spirit,” and the belief that we need to “meet the educational needs of all children,” Clovis High is setting out to affirm “all means all” in Clovis Unified. Clovis High wants to unify its campus around the belief that all students have a place to belong here in Cougar Country!
