ABCUSD Programs and Services
The ABCUSD Community Resource Team is a collection of local partner agencies that support ABC's students and families. Partners offer services like individual and family mental health therapy and supportive activities & programs.
The Fedde Community Resource Center (CRC) is next to the Fedde MS campus. The CRC has on-site health and mental health services, adult education, and a community closet for families.
ABCUSD's Foster Youth Achievement Program and Homeless Youth Achievement Program offer specialized services and support to eligible students and families. Youth identified and enrolled in the program have access to a Foster/Homeless Youth Liaison at school. Students receive supportive services such as academic support, immediate enrollment, school stability, and social-emotional services.
The purpose of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to build positive and productive learning environments for all students and staff. 27 ABCUSD campuses use the PBIS process to support student achievement and school safety. Research on PBIS shows that effective practices can lead to improved attendance and academic achievement, and reduced office discipline referrals and suspensions.
ABCUSD's Primary Intervention Program (PIP) is available for students in 15 elementary schools. PIP Coaches are trained to work with students in small groups (3-5) to provide lessons in areas like classroom survival skills, friendship-making skills, skills for dealing with feelings, alternatives to aggression, and how to manage stress.

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) teaches skills in self-awareness and self-management, interpersonal relationships, and responsible decision making. Activities and programs are aligned with the Common Core so that all students graduate with the knowledge and skills to succeed after high school.
