What is the Student Assistance Program?
A Student Assistance Program (S.A.P.)is designed to help students who may have developed barriers to school success. The program uses a systematic approach to identify students who may be in need. Referrals to the program can be made by school staff, concerned parents, and by self-referral. Students may be referred for concerns such as poor academic performance, attendance, non-typical behaviors, and mental health or drug and alcohol issues. Family and S.A.P. team members work together to develop a plan based on the student's needs. For more information you may contact any trained team member.To assist our students and parents, the Clearfield Area School District has a S.A.P. team in place at the High School.

Are you aware of a student who could use our help? To refer someone, or if you have questions or comments about the S.A.P. Team at Clearfield Area High School, you are
encouraged to contact any of the team members above or complete the online referral using the link below.
