Student Assistance Program

The Student Assistance Program brings together school, community, family and the youth in a working partnership. We offer assistance to students currently experiencing problems or those at risk for problems.

The SAP is designed to help students succeed in the school setting and break down barriers to learning, allowing students to successfully complete their education. Typical issues of concern for students are personal and/or family alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, truancy, family change, eating disorders, and pregnancy/parenting, and mental health issues.

Student Assistance Program Components

Students experiencing problems, (or who are at risk for problems), require special assistance to make optimal use of their educational opportunities. In the Brockport School District a student assistance team exists in each building. These teams work closely with students, staff, parents, and administrators. Building teams consist of teachers, nurses, psychologists, administrators, support staff and counselors.

The Student Assistance Programs provides confidential services based on the educational premise that students who receive help in dealing with pressing personal concerns, will be able to focus their remaining energies more effectively on the important task of developing academically, socially, and emotionally.
