Comprehensive Student Assistance Teams (CSAT CORE Teams) assess students through the Ready to Learn Process. The goal is to match students and their family with the appropriate level of services available through the CARE Youth Partnership. Addressing the influences that contribute to a child’s ability to learn enhances their performance in the classroom.

The EUSD Support Team member will work with you to identify the most appropriate program and/or service to meet your needs. Whether you are a teacher looking to connect a student with counseling services at school or a parent looking for a positive activity for your child in the community, the support team member at your local school will link you to school and community-based programs and services.  For more information on the EUSD Integrated Student Support programs at an individual school site, please contact the school social worker, counselor or parent liaison at the school site.
