What is the Student Assistance Program?

Livonia Public Schools would like you to know that a Student Assistance Program is established in each high school triad. The primary purpose of the program is to provide information and support to students who are in crisis or have ongoing problems which put them at risk for failure. In addition, the Student Assistance Provider (SAP) works closely with parents and community agencies in making referrals that can further support students and their families. Services are available to all students and include:

  • Individual support
  • Group Support through "Educational Support Groups"
    • Generally time-limited and meet on a weekly basis for 8-10 weeks.
    • Topics focus on a range of adolescent issues including: peer and family relationships, substance abuse, grief & loss, goal setting, health and school survival.
    • Student can be referred by a SAP, parent, school staff, peer or by self.
    • Participation is volutary, but students will be encouraged to participate if referred.

Please contact the SAP at your school for more information or with further questions.
