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.
This highly structured, districtwide, short-term program designed to empower K-3 students is available at Northwood Elementary.

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 senior director of Elementary Education, Glen Nielson. Questions may be directed to him via email or phone at 907-742-4254. The referral form is available for download here
and once completed, should be sent to Elementary Education via the instructions on the form.
"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.”
