SAT - Student Assistance Team
The Student Assistance Team is a program designed to help students who are "at risk" for issues involving drugs and alcohol and/or mental health concerns. It is a confidential, systematic process designed to intervene and refer students who are having problems. Referred students and their parents are given free access to appropriate community services in and out of school. The SAT is made up of specially trained teachers, school counselors, nurses, administrators, a professional from Teen Line, and a professional from Perry Human Services.
Teachers, parents, and students can refer anyone to SAT. Students can even refer themselves. Essentially, referrals are made when a person is concerned that a studnet may be "at risk" because of drug and alcohol or mental health issues. Referral forms are available in the guidance office and this page (see below). These forms must be downloaded, completed, and returned to the guidance office. Referrals may also be made by discussing a concern with a SAT member.
SAT members work with or "check in" with students through-out the school year to offer support and encouragement.
