AADAC provides a parent and community voice for our African-American and Black families in order to support our students in experiencing maximum levels 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. 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 for CVUSD’s implementation of those policies and procedures. For additional information, please contact Sonia Wilson, Director of Middle Schools at soniawilson@conejousd.org or 805-497-9511 ext. 1221.
