“Addressing Barriers to Student Learning”
The newly formalized Eagle Valley High School Student Assistance Program (SAP) was a community effort approved by the ECSD Board of Education on March 23, 2011. By formalizing the program and working to improve efforts already available at EVHS, we hope to create awareness and accountability, collaborate and increase resources and partnerships to best support students and their families.
“A Student Assistance Program is a comprehensive school-based program for students (K-12) designed to identify issues which prevent students from learning and being successful in school. Student Assistance Programs provide education, prevention, early identification, intervention, referral, and support groups for students. They foster risk reduction and positive asset development and work to provide a safe, alcohol and drug-free environment..”1
