The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a K-12 school-based, evidence-informed framework for prevention, early intervention, referral and support for students with identified needs that may prevent them from fully benefiting from their educational experience. The SAP's focus is on building supports for students dealing with non-academic barriers to learning including behavioral health, family and relationship issues as well as other life needs.
Student Assistance Programs originated as substance abuse prevention and intervention models and have been used for almost 50 years. During that time, the model has changed to provide prevention, early intervention and support services for non-academic issues including mental health, family and other relationship issues, bullying and other school violence issues and basic life needs, while remaining the primary resources for dealing with substance abuse prevention and early intervention concerns.
Kaukauna's Vision and Mission
The mission of the Kaukauna Area School District Student Assistance Program is to assist students, families, and staff in the identification, and removal of barriers to student development and learning. The Student Assistant Program recognizes that a student's academic success is directly impacted by his or her emotional and mental health and other stress. It is our goal to assist students in need through a partnership involving parents, educators, and the community, so that they may remain in school, advance academically, and are able to realize their maximum potential.
