Student Assistance Program
The Lackawanna Trail Student Assistance Program is a team of trained members consisting of teachers, administrators and counselors who meet regularly to provide services to referred students. The team provides a means of identifying and helping students who have challenges which interfere with their success at school. Our school district also has a licensed clinical social worker on staff who works as a part of the team. Her focus is to address many emotional and behavioral goals as well as crisis counseling when necessary.
There are many possible reasons for referral to the SAP Team, such as:
Drug/Alcohol Abuse Recent Death of a Loved One
Depression/Anxiety Pregnancy/Teen Parent
Divorce Social / Behavior Concerns
Eating Disorders Academic concerns
Bullying Other Personal Problems
Through SAP, students may be offered help in many ways including counseling, mentoring and support groups.
Students can be referred to the Student Assistance Program by parents, peers, administration, faculty or staff, and self-referral. Fill out the High School SAP referral form and return it to the Guidance Department.
An online version of the SAP referral form is also available here.
