All students within the SLS partnering school district and their families are eligible to receive SLS, including service linkage to community resources and family engagement programs.

Families and students may self-refer to the SLS Coordinators for linkage to community resources and services, as well as family engagement programs at the schools. School personnel may also refer families to the SLS Coordinators for services.
