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.


The SAP (Student Assistance Program) Team is a combined staff of teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, psychologist and personnel from drug/alcohol, mental health and juvenile probation agencies.

SAP 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.

Students can be referred by school staff, parents, peers or self-referral. Once a referral is made, data (limited to observable behaviors) is gathered with parent permission and shared with the parents and team. Data may also be shared with the student and parents. Parent-child cooperation is considered the first step in addressing the problem. Students who sincerely seek help to avoid chemical abuse through SAP are not subjected to disciplinary action. All data collected is considered confidential.
