Student Assistance Program (SAP)
The Pennsylvania Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a systematic team process used to mobilize school resources to remove barriers to learning. SAP is designed to assist in identifying issues including alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and mental health issues which pose a barrier to a student's success. The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to help students overcome these barriers so that they may achieve, advance, and remain in school. While Student Assistance Programs exist in all Pennsylvania School Districts, the structure and operation of the program in Mount Lebanon School District is a unique expression of an integrated model serving the needs of our community, families, and students.
