WHAT IS STUDENT ASSISTANCE?

 

     A Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a systematic intervention process for students at risk.  An at-risk student is one who has an emotional, social, and/or substance abuse problem that interferes with the normal learning process.  These problems include, but are not limited to, the following:

1.      Academic and behavioral difficulties

2.      Eating disorder

3.      Depression or other mental health problems

4.      Substance use or abuse

5.      Suicidal thoughts or gestures

6.      Self-mutilation (cutting or scratching oneself)

      The middle school SAP team members have committed themselves to identifying the students who have problems which affect their learning.  Each student is a special individual who is a product of his/her home, school, and community environments.  Therefore, a team effort is essential for the Student Assistance Program to be effective.

      If you are interested in having your child participate in the Student Assistance Program, then please contact one of the SAP team members in your child’s middle school.
