Student Assistance Program

Claysburg-Kimmel High School offers a Student Assistance Program, which was developed to offer supportive services to students having academic and/or emotional difficulties that interfere with their ability to function effectively within the school setting.

The SAP Team is composed of administrators, the school nurse, school counselor, classroom teachers, and personnel from the Altoona Hospital and Home Nursing Agency. A student can be referred by teachers, counselors, peers, other school personnel, parents, and themselves.  The goal of the SAP Team is to offer support to referred students though regular contact with team members. The team may also recommend other referral sources to the family that go beyond the realm of the SAP Team.

The SAP Team realizes the importance of parental/guardian involvement in the helping process. Therefore, a team member will be contacting parents/guardians interested in the program to gather additional information about their child.  The purpose of gathering this information is for the team to better understand the scope of the student's needs.
