• The Student Assistance Program (SAP) was developed to help students who are experiencing barriers to learing.  Barriers to learning can include: 
    • depression and/or anxiety
    • the use of drugs and/or alcohol
    • relationship problems
    • emotional disorders
    • grief due to separation or death
    • other disruptive life changes
    SAP is an intervention program, not a treatment program or disciplinary alternative.  Students are referred to both in-school and out-of-school supports.  In-school supports can include groups and meeting regularly with a team member.
    SAP can also help students get involved with out-of-school supports.  Keystone Children and Family Services and the Dauphin County Executive Commission on Drugs and Alcohol provide any necessary assessments.  Assessments are completed to determine if there is a need for support services outside of school.
