COST Resources

Message from Stephanie Navarro

Hi Eldridge Family!

My name is Stephanie Navarro and I'm the COST Specialist at Eldridge Elementary.

I work with the COST team to help maximize and expand available resources at our school and increase our school's capacity to respond quickly and appropriately to a wide range of student needs.

What is COST?

Coordination of Services Team (COST) is a multidisciplinary group of school staff and community partners who meet regularly to review referrals and discuss students’ strengths and supports needed. The team develops a plan for connecting the student/family to appropriate services, then monitors the success of service connection and interventions giving opportunity to tailor interventions over time.

COST Supports:

  • Students who are experiencing challenges in academia.

  • Students who are expressing concerning behavior(s) either in the classroom and/ at home.

  • Students & families needing support with basic needs, home environment, health concerns, etc.

  • Students & families facing traumatic events, transitional hardships, change in family dynamics, etc.

If you have any questions about COST, the COST form process, or help filling it the form, email me: or call me at extension x15218
