The Student Assistance Program (SAP) services at-risk students in the West Mifflin Area High School. Students identified as being at-risk are referred to the SAP team. At-risk students are typically experiencing significant personal problems related to: depression, academic performance, peer relationships, pregnancy, suicidal thoughts, anxiety/fears, family problems, eating/sleeping difficulties, drug and alcohol usage, and hostility/anger. Before any action is taken, parents/guardians are notified and provided with approval forms that must be submitted prior to any action through SAP.
The Student Assistant Program is comprised of trained school professionals (guidance counselors, teachers, and administrators) who receive referrals from parents, teachers, students, and other school staff. This team works closely with outside agencies and other counseling and referral services. A list of team members is available in the guidance office.
