African-American District Advisory Council

CVUSD recognizes the importance of serving our African-American and Black students and families.  The African-American District Advisory Council (AADAC) provides a parent and community voice for our African-American and Black families in order to support our students in experiencing maximum level of success at school, including academically, extra-curricular, social-emotional and wellness.  Our goal is to build a strong partnership between CVUSD staff and families, and to connect our community's African-American and Black families to create a safer, more inclusive school environment, and increase the academic opportunities and achievement of our Black students.  We do this by sharing both successes and areas for improvement as we collectively engage in ongoing discussion and collaboration.  Part of AADAC's role is to advise the District Advisory Council, school administrators, site staff, and the Board of Education.  AADAC provides a diverse perspective on the  implementation of District policies and procedures.  In every discussion and action, AADAC centers the needs of African-American and Black students and considers how to support them as they strive to reach their full potential.
