• Student Assistance Program

    The goal of the Student Assistance Program (SAP) is to identify and remove barriers posing a risk to a student's success. The team includes teachers, counselors, our school nurse, our SAP coordinator, and an administrator. Through data collection, evaluation and communicating with school professionals and family members with helpful recommendations, the goal is that students will be provided with the tools they need to overcome barriers to their learning. Anyone can make a referral to the school SAP team. Please contact your school counselor for more information. More information can be found on the DHS website: SAP Program
