Student Assistance Program (SAP)

    The Student Assistance Program was initiated in the Delaware Valley School District in 1989.  It is a confidential program to help students who may be at risk.  The goal of the program is to help the student achieve success at school.  Those at-risk behaviors may include problems with academics, attendance, discipline, drug and alcohol issues, or mental health issues (eating disorders, depression, suicidal issues).  A student enters the program by being referred by a parent, sibling, teacher, counselor, nurse, administrator, friend, or by a self-referral.  Students are automatically referred if they have violated the drug and alcohol or weapons policy or if they have been involved in a fight.  The end result of the referral process, if warranted, can be an intervention with the student, the student's parent(s)/guardian(s), and members of the team.
