NETS provides individualized and meaningful collaboration, mentoring, and support for beginning teachers as they work toward the completion of California’s requirements for attaining their Professional Clear Credential. Unlike similar programs at other school districts, NETS is completely free of charge, and it was designed in-house specifically for EUSD.
    • All classroom teachers are provided with extensive dedicated time for planning, preparation, and peer-to-peer collaboration.
    • Internship opportunities are available for those who want to serve in Special Education.

You’ll have access to a top-notch benefits package.

  • a robust pension plan;
  • and more!

The cost of EUSD benefits for full-time employees is often significantly lower than many equivalent private sector benefit programs.

You’ll be supported in ways you never expected.

EUSD is home to a strong network of support programs and professionals that help to actualize the unlimited potential of every learner and provide teachers and staff with invaluable assistance.

All of our schools practice the philosophy of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), which takes a proactive approach to encouraging student safety, wellness, and positive behavior. In support of this initiative, every school has a dedicated family liaison, a full-time social worker, and a full-time nurse. Plus, every middle school has two full-time counselors.

We also have an extensive Family Engagement program which empowers families to become partners in the education of their children through workshops and other innovative offerings. The program is so impressive that it received one of California’s leading educational honors, the Golden Bell Award, in 2017.


You’ll be at the forefront of educational technology and innovation.

At EUSD, we aren’t just technology-rich — we’re educational technology pioneers. Our innovative programs have led to significant gains in student achievement, and we’re proud to say that others have taken notice. For example, educators from as far away as Japan and New Zealand have traveled to EUSD repeatedly over the years to observe and replicate our programs. Even Silicon Valley has recognized our success as EUSD is a four-time recipient of the Apple Distinguished Program award.

Now, we’re extending our lead in technology and innovation through the implementation of our One-to-One Initiative. This exciting program will put an iPad in the hands of every single EUSD student by the 2020–2021 school year. We also equip every certificated employee with a MacBook, and we empower you to make the most of it through workshops, trainings, and a helpful IT support staff.
