Student Assistance Program (DSAP)

Student Services (also known as Pupil Services) is defined in Chapter 12 as "Services designed by a school entity to support the instructional program and to help students attain their educational and career goals." It is also defined as "those programs and services that support the overall instructional mission of a school district by ensuring that students attain the knowledge and competencies necessary to derive the maximum benefit from the instructional program."

Student Services Department (SSD) was created to assist the school district in accomplishing its mission to prepare ALL students to be successful, ethical, caring members of a global community. The SSD will partner with parents and teachers to provide experiences and opportunities that foster academic success.

This partnership will increase student resiliency defined as the capacity to overcome risk factors to move toward positive development and the capacity to spring back and successfully adapt in the face of adversity.

No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness, and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.
