What is SAP?
In Pennsylvania, every middle school and high school and some elementary schools have a Student Assistance Program (SAP). The purpose of this program is to provide a team approach for referrals of students when they exhibit warning signs of concern that may affect their success in school. Referrals can come from other students, school faculty, parents, community members or students can self refer to the SAP Team. Typically, a SAP Team consists of a group of school personnel (examples are: school nurse, administrators, teachers, guidance counselors, etc.) and community agency personnel from Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol backgrounds; including a MH liaison, a Drug and Alcohol liaison, and a Drug and Alcohol Prevention Specialist. This team functions to help you find services and assistance within the school and/or community. All SAP referrals are confidential.
