The Student Assistance Program is composed of a team of teachers, counselors, nurses, and administrators who assist students who are experiencing barriers to their learning. Members of the SAP team are trained through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Student Assistance Program. Members are taught how to identify symptoms in students that may be related to a mental health or drug and alcohol issue. The SAP team works closely with Creative Health Services, the Caron Foundation, and parents to assure that students get the proper support and services that they require.
The Bear Ambassador Program
This program provides assistance and guidance to our seventh grade students as they transition to Junior High East. A select group of ninth grade students work with all of our seventh graders in small groups. During this time our BA’s work with the students to help create a feeling of connectedness to East and to also promote positive peer relationships.
In addition to the services provided at East, there are many other agencies that can help. See the link for resources on a wide range of services. Give us a call if you have any questions or need more information.
