The ERUSD Teacher Support Programs help prepare teachers to meet the academic learning needs of all K-12 students and retain high-quality teachers. The programs are responsive to the individual teacher's needs and are consistent with the Education Code.  Each program provides opportunities for the application and demonstration of the pedagogical knowledge and skills of teachers. Programs include individualized support and assistance to each candidate, collaborative experiences with colleagues and resource personnel, and a formative assessment system that is built upon the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
