What is IDAC?

Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC) draws members from parents to represent our school at district level climate assessment/problem-solving meetings. The primary purpose of the Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC), originally formed in 1988 as the Intercultural Advisory Council, is to assist in the formation and review of policies that assure non-discriminatory practices in all operational areas of the Clovis Unified School District. Its further mission is to assist in improving the cultural environment of the District.

Hispanic and Latino Heritage
9/15 to 10/15 Century is celebrating Hispanic & Latino Heritage Month! We have novels and materials in the library for checkout. A display will be utilized in the cafeteria to recognize Hispanic and Latino art, famous people, and culture. The marquee will offer a shout-out to the culture. Various teachers will have lessons in class and students will have some opportunities to contribute to the activities. Be sure to watch our Folkloric dances perform at our annual IDAC Multi-Cultural night on Tuesday, October 4th at 5:30 PM in the amphitheater.

Below is a short video to give students some insight on "What does it mean to be Hispanic?" It's a great way for the kids to learn from other kids.
If you would like to introduce Hispanic Heritage Month in a musical way, then check out this video. It mentions some significant icons that students can learn about.
Below are some Read Alouds to help kick off Hispanic Heritage month for younger readers and older readers:
