Student Assistance Program
The Upper Perkiomen School District is committed to assisting all pupils in reaching their full potential. Implementation of proven instructional practices are obviously a main focus. However, students who are struggling with other issues outside the purview of the classroom environment are a concern as well. To this end, the School District established a Student Assistance Program in 1988. Initially at the High School only, student assistance teams are now established in all four schools within the district.
ACT attempts to:
- Identify at-risk students having problems due to academics, behavior, health issues, drug and/or alcohol use, mental health issues and attendance problems.
- Intervene and refer those students to appropriate in-school or community services.
- Serve as a crisis team in emergency situations.
Student assistance programs are NOT treatment programs, rather they identify and refer at-risk students. They also help students "get back on track" educationally through various support programs.
