Student Assistance Program (SAP)

The Student Assistance Program is mandated throughout all public secondary schools in PA.  It is designed to assist school personnel to identify student issues, including alcohol and other drugs, which pose a barrier to their learning and school success.

  

Chartiers Valley's SAP program is called Student Support.  Our mission is to help students and their families, encourage healthy coping skills, and to increase school success. Students' health, safety, and welfare are always of utmost importance.  Student Support Teams coordinate the program. The teams include teachers, counselors, administrative staff, etc.  These individuals are specially trained to identify problems, determine whether or not the presenting problem lies within the responsibility of the school and offer resources to assist the student and parent.  It is neither the mission of the school nor its responsibility, to resolve all problems that impact upon school performance.

   

Involvement of parents in all phases of the SAP underscores the parents’ role and responsibility in the decision making process affecting their children's education and is the key to successful resolution of problems.

     

School personnel, peers, students themselves, or family members may refer students to Student Support.  Any person who is concerned about a student is encouraged to refer that student by contacting one of the school counselors.

Some signs and symptoms of students who may be referred to the Student Support are:

 

  • Decline in grades/academic performance
  • Poor attendance
  • Change in friends, behavior, or attitude
  • School phobia
  • Violation of school rules
  • Health problems
  • Alcohol and other drug use
  • Family issues/stress/violence
  • Being at risk for suicide or other mental problems including anxiety/fear, withdrawal,    isolation, risk-taking or self-abusive behavior, eating/sleeping/grooming problems or peer relationship problems
  • Being a victim of violence/abuse
  • Eating, sleeping or grooming changes
