Family Guide to Student Supports

We care deeply about our students’ well-being, and we know that their academic and social-emotional health are all components of that well-being. That’s why we offer a wide array of academic, social-emotional and mental health services to students. 
Providing multiple levels of supports for our students is not a separate program, class, or intervention but rather a way of organizing our schools to help support all students. The goal is to celebrate our students for who they are and to help them achieve their individual goals.This page has information on the many types of support that are available for students:

Schoolwide/Classroom Support Tier I

We strive to create a safe, healthy space for students to have optimal opportunity to learn.  In addition, we provide services and instruction that lead to ever increasing student achievement outcomes.  
The EUSD Creed/Expectations and Code of Conduct are an integral part of every classroom/space across all campuses. The adults in the system strive to build relationships with the students and redirect them when students struggle to behave in accordance with expectations. 

All students receive weekly SELSecond Step instruction in an environment where the adult uses trauma-invested practices, including but not limited to shifts in language that support a child-centered learning environment. The adults in the system use the EUSD Responding to Behavior protocols when students struggle to behave in accordance with expectations. 

The students are provided with an engaging and supportive academic learning environment and comprehensive curriculum rooted in the EUSD Literacy Habits of Mind, whereby content knowledge, meaning making, language development, and effective expression are interwoven into learning opportunities. The adults in the system use research-based academic instructional moves and intervention strategies as appropriate to ensure students are learning and growing.

Intervention Support Tier II

Students are provided with supports beyond Tier I when it is recognized that they are not responding to the Tier I intervention with success. Student Success Team Meetings are held and subsequent interventions are put in place; a problem-solving process to plan interventions and monitor progress is established.  SST Meetings can be held for academic, social-emotional, mental health, or attendance concerns. Students continue to receive all of the school-wide/classroom supports, as well as the additional support. 

Intervention Support Tier III

In addition to the schoolwide/classroom supports and Tier II Interventions, students can also be placed at the center of individual problem-solving teams. These teams include parents and staff who collaborate to create individualized support plans for students.  For example, students with IEPs or students who may need to be placed in alternative settings or provided with subsequent supports. 

What Can I Do If My Child Is Struggling and Needs Help?

Starting with your student's classroom teacher is a great first step for seeking support. Always reach out to them first.  They can meet with you regarding your child’s progress and discuss any concerns; they can also schedule a Student Success Team meeting in support of your child.

Curriculum & Instruction

English Language Arts, Mathematics, History-Social Science, and Science are the core academic areas of instruction for our District.  Literacy is integrated into all instruction in these content areas.  We use state-adopted curriculum materials for all core instruction, with additional resources used, as needed, to support interventions for students who are in need or those who need additional challenges.  Assessment is used to inform this instruction to ensure ever increasing student achievement outcomes; subsequent support is provided for students as necessary to ensure they are engaged and progressing.
