Student Assistance Program (SAP) at Bethel Park

The Bethel Park School District Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a service designed to help students who are having difficulty experiencing success in school. Students may be referred to SAP by parents, teachers, classmates, or other concerned individuals. Situations such as grief or loss, a move to a new home, or the failure to achieve major personal goals can contribute to this lack of success.

A drop in grades, irregular attendance, difficulty in interpersonal relationships, chronic disciplinary problems, etc., may indicate a need for the type of help that the SAP will provide. SAP consists of teams made up of teachers, counselors, psychologists, principals, and a school nurse. The teams meet regularly to devise strategies of assistance for the student. Discussions are kept in confidence. Once a plan is organized, a member of the team meets with the student and his/her family. Suggestions are made to help resolve the problem and thus open the way to a more successful social and academic life at school.
