    What is the Student Assistance

    Program?

    In Pennsylvania, every school in every school district is required to have a (SAP) Student Assistance Program.

     

    A specially trained team, (Student Assistance Team, Elementary Student Assistance Team) made up of school and community agency staff, is here to help you access school and community services.

     

    Centennial is in the vanguard of making student assistance services available to all students, K-12.
