Student Assistance Program

Student Assistance Program

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) team provides focused services to students seeking support or needing interventions for academics, behavior, and attendance issues often due to deeper concerns relating to substance abuse, mental health, or social issues.  The SAP team identifies students in need of intervention, assesses these students’ specific needs, meets with the family, creates action plans, and provides them with support and referral to resources.


Students can be referred by teachers, parents, concerned professionals, other students, and self. All referrals are kept strictly confidential/private. If you would like to make a referral please click here to download & print out the referral form or contact the school's Family Service Specialist.

How can SAP Help?

At some point in life, everyone deals with personal problems.  Some of these problems can be quite severe and have very harmful consequences to a young person’s life.Below, is a list of the type of problems that the SAP can help students and parents deal with...


Alcohol & Other Drugs

Family Problems

Peer Conflicts


 Running Away from Home

Academic Failure

Thoughts of Hurting Self

Excessive Behavior Problems

After the Referral

1. The SAP team gathers information, such as student’s academic records, attendance, discipline referrals, and classroom teacher observations to determine if there is a significant problem.

2. If so, this screening results in a family meeting where a plan of action is created to meet the student’s needs.  The student is often referred to on-campus resources such as counseling, mentoring, mediation, etc….

3. At times the problem is beyond the scope of the school and the parents are given a recommendation for a community based assessment and/or services.

4. To encourage success, the SAP will provide follow up with the student and his/her parents to determine if the action plan helped resolve the problem(s).
