STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

SAP or commonly called "CARES" is a multi-disciplinary team composed of school personnel (teachers, staff, administrators, nurses, and counselors). This team has been trained to understand and work on the issues of adolescent chemical use, abuse and dependency. The team will play a primary role in the identification and referral process of students coming to their attention through the procedures outlined in this policy. Brochures outlining the purpose and work of this committee can be obtained from the counseling office, administration, and the school nurse.
