Student Assistance Program (SAP)
The Oley Valley High School Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a comprehensive model for the delivery of prevention, intervention and support services for students and their families that are designed to help students achieve personal and academic success.
What is SAP?The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Student Assistance Program (SAP), which is administered by the PA Department of Education’s Division of School Options and Safety in partnership with the PA Department of Health’s Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs, and the PA Department of Public Welfare’s Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, is designed to assist school personnel in identifying issues including alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and mental health issues which pose a barrier to a student’s success. The SAP brochure will provide you with more information on the SAP process and how to make a referral. http://www.sap.state.pa.us/uploadedfiles/SAPguideforstudents.pdf
What happens after a student is referred:
Referrals to the Student Assistance Team may be made by faculty, staff, parents, students, or by self-referral. An official referral can be made by contacting a member of the Student Assistance Team. Once an official referral has been made the Student Assistance Team will utilize a systematic process of gathering data to assist in the assessment of the student’s need for help and counseling. When a significant problem is found to exist, the parent or guardian of the student will be contacted by the school and recommendations made for appropriate actions. All referrals will be handled confidentially, following the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
The Student Assistance Team is comprised of a group of trained teachers, counselors, nurses, and administrators who strive to provide support to student.
