Student Services is dedicated to creating an environment where any and all students have the opportunity to learn.

Essential to the mission of the Coronado Unified School District, we recognize that every child,  everyday needs a Connection and Challenge and a Champion.  We are committed to academic excellence and personal success for all students and staff. Central to this commitment is educational equity which is dependent upon two main factors: fairness and access which is  intentionally designed for meaningful participation. The two factors are closely related and dependent on each other for achieving our goal ensuring each individual make meaningful connections at school, is challenged to do their best everyday, and has a champion to encourage them everyday. 
Our district recognizes the importance of providing instruction with the rigor, relevance, and engagement which fosters the potential for each student. We know that equity and school climate are critical for healthy learning environments. Together, they underscore the quality and character of school life that fosters full access to:
  • High expectations for learning and achievement that are appropriated supported for each individual.
  • Emotionally and physically safe and healthy learning environments; 
  • Caring and connected relationships with peers and adults; and
  • Meaningful participation that enhances academic, social-emotional, civic, and moral development.
The Coronado Unified School District acknowledges that an equitable school climate positively responds to the wide range of cultural norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, learning styles, leadership practices, and organizational structures within the district and broader community that ensures every child, every day has a Challenge, a Connection and a Champion.
Our department includes areas such as health services, clinical counseling, student discipline, crisis response, residency, and special education from ages 3 - 22.
