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:
Comprehensive Sexual Health Education
TUSD provides a comprehensive sexuality course for all 7th and 9th graders each school year, in accordance with the California Healthy Youth Act of 2015.  Please see the parent letters and opt-out forms for this instruction below.

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  typically 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.
