What is T.R.A.C.? 

In 2017, EUSD created an explicit social emotional learning (SEL) program called T.R.A.C.. It stands for Teambuilding, Regulation, Awareness, and Community. These are all concepts based on CASEL’s 5 core SEL competencies, Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision Making.

T.R.A.C. is more than just a program, it is a process. The lessons are taught by designated teachers and are dynamic and tailored to the population of each school site. The social emotional needs of our students and teachers are focused on to provide a differentiated approach to learning. 

Students needing additional support to enhance their SEL skills are engaged in small group sessions with the T.R.A.C. teacher. These are skill based meetings and progress is continuously monitored and communicated with classroom teacher to ensure success. 

T.R.A.C. represents our values as a district. We are committed to building a community in which students, staff and parents feel valued and confident that what matters to them matters. The goal is to create positive relationships and an atmosphere where each student and adult feels connected, cared about, and physically and emotionally safe.
