WUSD support students who are struggling socially, emotionally, behaviorally and/or academically. At each school site support staff works closely with school staff to identify students in need of assistance. Once identified, social workers, youth outreach and home school liaisons work directly with students and parents to address issues that are of concern to them, drawing on other resources for additional support.
