SAEBRS Screener Information for Families
DNUSD is committed to supporting every student’s academic and social, emotional, and behavioral growth. Part of our shared goals for Del Norte students is to be able to regulate their emotions, develop positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. As part of this process, all students in 2nd-12th grade will complete a screener this winter and spring called the SAEBRS, or Social, Academic, Emotional, Behaviors Risk Screener. The screener will ask students a total of 20 questions. The student’s teacher will also complete the screener based on their observations of the students in their classrooms. The information is confidential and will only be used by your child’s teacher, principal, school counselor, and designated district staff to determine instructional needs in the classroom and at the individual student level. All information will remain confidential in keeping with the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.
SAEBRS Questions being asked:
Don't hesitate to contact Lisa Howard, program specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the school district at 464-0240 with any questions you may have. For more information on SAEBRS visit: https://www.illuminateed.com/products/fastbridge/social-emotional-behavior-assessment/SAEBRS/

Welcome to Joe Hamilton Elementary!
I'm so excited to be Principal of Joe Hamilton Elementary!
This is my 17th year in education. Most recently, I was Principal of Fairfield High School in the bay area for five years. I truly loved the staff and students of Fairfield High, but I did not love the triple-digit heat at my home in the Sacramento area!
My wife and I have two awesome boys, Chase and Ryan, who attend Del Norte schools. We also have a dog named Kaos and a cat named Jack. Del Norte county offers a fantastic climate, great opportunities for outdoor recreation, and the close connections of a small town. It's a wonderful place to be!
I try to be out on campus and in classrooms as much as possible, but you can always set up a time to meet with me by calling Chelsea in the front office. I'm looking forward to meeting you and working with you to support every student in growing and learning.
Go Sea Otters!
