Family Guide to Student Supports


At AUSD we care deeply about our students’ well-being, and we know that their academic, mental and emotional health are all components of that well-being. That’s why AUSD offers a wide array of academic, social-emotional and mental health services to students in grades TK-12. 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 isto 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 here in AUSD. Please consider reaching out to your school’s Intervention Lead with any questions about the supports available for your student. Each school website should clearly display the contact information for your Intervention Lead. You can also request support via the "Request for Student Support" under the "Families" dropdown menu on each school's website.
