Dear SAP Colleague
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Student Assistance Program (SAP) is administered by the PA Department of Education’s Safe Schools Office in partnership with the PA Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs’ Division of Prevention and Intervention, and the PA Department of Human Services’ Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. SAP is designed to assist school personnel in identifying issues including alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and mental health issues which pose a barrier to a student’s success.
Each year the PA Network for Student Assistance Services (PNSAS) updates their statewide contact lists. We would appreciate your assistance in obtaining information from your building. Please click on the link below under the attachments section to access the form listed. Complete and email it to your PA Network for Student Assistance Services Regional Coordinator (view PNSAS map here for email address) by January 15, 2015.
A new resource now available is “SAP Frequently Asked Questions and Best Practice Responses”, located on the SAP website www.pnsas.org. This document is helpful for teams to review and enhance their understanding of issues related to implementing the Student Assistance Program. Also, monthly SAP County Coordination Updates can be found on the SAP website under the “About SAP” tab.
Please contact your PNSAS Regional Coordinator. Thank you for your dedication to SAP and we hope the rest of your school year is successful.
