The mission of the Student Assistance Program at PA Distance is to support students and their families, promote healthy coping skills, and to increase school success. Students’ health, safety, and welfare are always of the utmost importance to us. Students can be referred to SAP by parents/guardians, school personnel, peers, or through self-referral. The SAP team is comprised of specially trained teachers, administrators, and school counselors. Our goal is to work with families to offer support and recommendations for students. Where barriers are beyond the scope of the school, the team can provide guidance and information so that families can access community resources.
