One Region. One Vision. Infinite Possibilities.
If one wanted to go around the world, one need only take a trip through the cultural mosaic which is California’s Central Valley.

“Tapping into California’s Central Valley’s Hidden Wealth: Its Rich Cultural Capital”
His vision and work continue to this day. At CVF, where Jim’s widow and CVF’s co-founder Susan McClatchy serves as Board vice chair, we know there can be many challenges for English Learner students and we seek promising new ways to close the achievement gap and advance the region’s most valuable resource – the abundant cultural wealth of its people.
The California Department of Education collects data for 60 language groups – and some school districts report as many as 100.
Through CVF’s Data Dialogues Network, we are committed to providing district partners with the information and quality data they need to advance their English Learner students.
