Welcome to William R. Buckley Elementary School.  The home of the Bengals!  I certainly feel that education is a team effort between the school, parents, and the students.  Parent involvement and support is one reason why we are one of the most successful school districts in Tulare County.

    The entire staff and I invite you to become partners in your child’s education.  Our staff is committed to providing the best possible learning environment for every student and to help every child find academic success. It is also our goal to provide opportunities for our students to engage in new experiences and to make new friends. We look forward to your participation as members of the Buckley community. 


    The policies and procedures outlined in this handbook are intended to provide the maximum opportunity for learning in a school that is safe and orderly.  To offer the best possible education for your child, we need your involvement and support.  You can help by: 


    -Making sure your child is at school on time everyday

    -Joining parent groups (Parent Teacher Association, School Site Council)

    -Volunteering in the classroom or library

    -Helping with Classroom Parties

    -Assisting with special activities

    -Monitoring  your child’s homework

             -Carefully reviewing all correspondence from school


    In closing, I look forward to working with you and becoming a partner in your child’s education.
