Early Intervention for K-3 Students

  • CSF provides an early intervention for kindergarten through third-grade students whose behaviors are such that a targeted intervention is necessary to change anti-social behaviors to pro-social behaviors.

    How it Works

    While the positive schoolwide discipline plan meets the needs of the majority of students, there are those who need more support.

About the CSF Program

  • Creating Successful Futures (CSF) is a highly structured, districtwide, short-term program designed to empower students in grades K-3 to make safe and positive choices. Teaming with schools and parents, CSF teachers, counselors and assistants teach students the skills needed to achieve academic and social success. 

    CSF began in the 2000-01 school year. Initially funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Safe and Drug Free Schools, it is now an established Tier II intervention program supporting ASD's Response to Instruction (RTI) goals. 


    The CSF program is coordinated by the Elementary Education department. 

    "In recent years, a body of research
    has been building to suggest that there
    is a strong link between young
    children’s social-emotional competence and
    their chances of early school success.”
