>>>Welcome to our First Professional Development Day for 2019-2020!
This day is all about promoting positive socio-emotional development and behavioral outcomes for staff and students! We are blessed to have Mr. Joe Beckman, aka 'The Happy Caveman' to start us off with a talk on the importance of human connections. See his introductory video for EUSD here. Mr. Beckman will also present to students and staff at each of the sites. Parents have a special event with him on September 12 at Oakhills/Ridgeview MPR.
>>>2019-2020 PD Days to Address the Three MTSS Domains!
Eureka Union School District prides itself in recognizing that test scores and excellent academic achievement are not all that matter! Socio-emotional skills and improved behavioral, mental health outcomes are equally as important, if not more. Through its LCAP (Local Accountability Plan), EUSD has devoted each of its district-wide professional development days into addressing each of the MTSS domains:
September 13 PD Day at Olympus JHS - It's All About Socio-Emotional/Behavioral Development!
November 1 PD Day at Cavitt JHS - Reaching for New Heights: Improving Academic Outcomes for All!
January 6 PD Day at Olympus JHS - Balancing it Right: SEL and Academics Hand-in-Hand!
