California Healthy Kids Survey
TUSD will be administering the Healthy Kids Survey to all of it's 5th, 7th and 9th grade students between the dates of October 2-31st, 2017. This is an anonymous statewide survey that evaluates student resiliency, protective factors, risk behaviors and school climate across the state.  It provides important insight regarding the connection between emotional health behaviors, perception of safety and academic performance among TUSD’s student population.​ You can find the opt in permission slip here, if you have a 5th grader, and you want your student to participate.

 
If you DO NOT want your 7th or 9th grade student to participate in the California Healthy Kids survey, you can find the opt out permission slip here.  You will need to fill it out and return it to your student's front school site office by September 30th, 2017 in order for the school to make alternative arrangements for your student.
 
 

 

Substance use and abuse
TUSD provides substance use and abuse classes to students who have been caught using drugs or alcohol on a school campus. These classes are mandatory for students with a substance use violation.  The school site sends a referral to the office of Prevention Services, and then Prevention Services gets in touch with the family regarding when their child is required to attend.
In addition, here is a community resource for a local youth intervention program for substance use/abuse:

The Office of Prevention Services provides resources and referrals to TUSD students and their families needing help within the following categories:

 
Mental Health:
​TUSD provides on-site mental health services at all of it's school sites. These services are for students who are struggling with emotional issues that are negatively impacting the student's ability to be successful in the school setting.  You can make a referral for your student to see a Therapist by contacting your child's school site front office.  Students can also self refer.
In addition, here, you can find local community mental health resources:
 
 
 
Anger Management
 TUSD offers anger management classes to students who have received discipline for engaging in an aggressive act. These classes are mandatory and  typcially a part of the student's plan for reinstatement to his/her home school.  When the office of prevention services receives a referral from the affected school site, it reaches out to the family to enroll the student in the next available class.
