The goal of the SAP is to assist students to succeed educationally and to help them to deal with barriers that impede success. The need exists for schools to recognize risk factories related to substance abuse, depression, suicide, etc. The school has a role in addressing behaviors that may affect health, safety, and welfare of any and all students.
WHY Students may be referred to the SAP team:
WHO Can refer a student:
HOW to refer a student to the SAP team:
1. Students may share concerns regarding themselves or a classmate
2. Parents may contact the school to share concerns regarding their son or daughter
3. Teachers will follow the referral process by completing appropriate paperwork.
4. Teams meetings are held regularly
5. The SAP process does involve parent participation as an action plan is developed
6. This program is voluntary, however, an intervention will take place if a school policy has been violated or students’ health, safety, and welfare are in danger. School policy will be followed at that time.
