Student Assistance Program (SAP)

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a response to students who are having trouble not only in their academic performance, but also with their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being. The Pilgrim School SAP Team members will help students find services and assistance within the school and, if needed, in the community. The SAP team does not diagnose or treat the student. 

Students may be referred to SAP by parents, teachers, administrators, or other students.  Situations such as grief or loss, divorce, addictions, and stress/anxiety 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 team will provide.

SAP consists of teams made up of teachers, counselors, and the school nurse. The team meets regularly to develop interventions to assist students. Discussions are kept in confidence. Once a plan is organized, a member of the team meets with the student. Suggestions are made to help resolve the problem and thus open the way to a more successful social and academic life at school.
