The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District is vitally concerned with each employee's work performance, personal well-being and realization of full potential in personal and career development.

The Board of Education supports the concept that district employees will function on the job at their most effective level when their lives are not impaired by emotional stress or chemical dependency.

The Employee Assistance Program functions to provide assistance to employees who are experiencing a job performance problem. The primary objectives of the program are:

1.      To retain valued employees

2.      To restore productivity through early identification of emotional stress or chemical dependency problems

3.      To motivate employees to seek assistance

4.      To refer employees to the appropriate assistance resources
