INCLUSION IN ACTION
The Parent Council organizes Inclusion in Action programs at all nine EUSD school sites throughout the year. Programming includes classroom and school-wide activities, assemblies, sporting events, visual and performing arts, a dedicated library collection and more, all around the subject of inclusion.

SOAR is the district's renowned school-wide inclusion framework designed to promote social awareness and support for our students with special needs on the playground at lunchtime. The goal of SOAR is to promote positive interaction between students on each campus and in the community, but enhancing awareness and generating positive attitudes. The encouragement of friendships for students with special needs, through the facilitation of playground navigation and social interaction by a trained peer coach, makes the playground a more fun and welcoming place. The outcome is an increased sense of belonging and significance for all students. Contact your school Principal for details about SOAR on your campus.
Inclusion Mini-Grants are intended to promote positive inclusive opportunities between students with special needs and their classmates. Grant eligibility is extended to all EUSD staff members working directly with students. Examples of grant awards include social-emotional curriculum, adaptive playground equipment, supplemental STEM materials, and classroom literature. Click HERE for a Mini-Grant application.
