Student Assistance Program

Adamstown Elementary's Student Assistance Program (SAP) is designed to give support and develop strategies for elementary students. The SAP Team is composed of teachers, school guidance counselors, administrators, school nurses, and an assessor from Caron Counseling Services. They work closely with local agencies to assist students who are challenged by academic, behavior, drug/alcohol, or mental health concerns. Parents, students, or community members who desire additional information concerning the program should contact Mrs. Susan Snyder, principal, at (717) 484-1602. 

Purpose 
The team’s responsibility is to give support and aid to all students who are referred for academic, drug/alcohol, and/or mental health concerns. 

Who May Refer 
Anyone may refer a student to the Student Assistance Team. Most referrals are made by teachers who are concerned about a particular student. On occasion parents will refer their children. Students sometimes refer their peers or even themselves. The SAP Team stands ready to support and assist all referrals. 

How It Works 
The SAP process involves three steps: 
1. Identifying a student’s needs. 
2. Determining the strategies needed to assist the student. 
3. Implementing intervention strategies through a continuum of services.
