About Us

The Educational Services Department is committed to providing support to meet the needs of our diverse learners. We work together with our school staff to ensure our students receive a quality instructional program focusing on the core curriculum, and receive the services needed to succeed as individuals. Some of the programs we offer include additional academic support, behavioral support, language support, enrichment in the arts. In addition, we work collaboratively with our community partnerships to provide quality services to our community.

Our department provides our administrators and teachers with the training they need to successfully address the needs of our students, including those of English Learners, students needing special services, as well as students who have been identified as gifted and/or high achieving.

California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS)

The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is a powerful tool for use in grades 5-12 that can help schools and districts accurately identify areas of student and school strengths and weaknesses, and address related needs. It is a comprehensive data-driven decision-making process used to guide efforts toward improving school climate, learning supports and engagement, as well as identifying and increasing the quality of effective health, prevention, and youth development programs.
