• North Side's Student Assistance Program (SAP)  

    What is it? 
    The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a confidential, voluntary process designed to gather data to assist in the assessment of the students' needs for help and supports.  The involvement of the parents/guardians of a student is key to this process!
     
    The program is designed to....
    • Provide prevention-based activities and programs.
    • Accept referrals for students who are experiencing barriers to learning and school success such as alcohol or drug use, depression, anxiety, grief, or other concerns.
    • Intervene and refer these students to the appropriate school or community resources.  This is a prevention and an intervention program, not a treatment program.

    Who Can Make a Referral?

    Referrals to the SAP Team may be made by teachers, school staff, parents/guardians, other students, by self-referral of a student experiencing difficulty in a situation - basically anyone concerned with a student's well-being.  Any student who violates the Central Dauphin School District Drug and Alcohol Policy will automatically be referred to the team.

     
    How Do You Make a Referral?
    - There are SAP referral forms that people can fill out and place in a team member's mailbox. 
    - A concerned person could talk to a SAP Team Member and let them know their concerns.
    - Email Kelly Kroeck, School Counselor at kkroeck@cdschools.org 
     
    Please remember that ALL Referrals are kept Confidential! 
    Outcome of the team's work will not be known to those who refer students!
