Student Assistance Programs: The Emerging Role of Schools.
Belcher, D. Christopher
This document presents information on the Blue Springs School District's Student Assistance Program (SAP) designed to address the social and family issues that affect students' academic performance. The Blue Springs SAP began in fall 1986, evolved rapidly, and in 1992 was in 18 building sites. In 1994 the program developed links with the Blue Springs Police Department and the district's Student Assistance Program. In 1993-94 the program processed over 700 referrals on students. The Blue Springs program received the National Organization of Student Assistance Program and Partners State award in 1994 and was nominated for national recognition. Lists and charts, which comprise more than half the paper, provide information on: characteristics associated with students at-risk for dropping out; program components; the School District's Student Assistance Program model (CHOICES); behavioral referral process flow chart; team member positions in buildings; and responsibilities of central office administration, building level administration, and classroom teachers.
