STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SAP)
The SAP team is made up of members of the school staff who are trained to help students and parents access school and community services. The goal of the SAP team is to help parents and students find services and assistance within the school and, if needed, in the community. This team does not diagnose, treat, or refer children for treatment.Anyone can refer a student to the Student Assistance Program. Some students are referred by teachers and other school personnel. Any school staff member, a student’s friend or family member can let the SAP team know that they are worried about someone. The students themselves can even go directly to the SAP team to ask for help.
