The Cocalico Middle School Student Assistance Program (SAP)
is designed to give support and develop strategies for Cocalico Middle
School students. The SAP Team is composed of teachers, school guidance
counselors, administrators, school nurses, and an assessor from Pennsylvania
Counseling Services. They work closely with local agencies to assist students
who are challenged by academic, behavior, drug/alcohol, or mental health
concerns. Parents, students, or community members who desire additional
information concerning the program should contact any team member of the
Middle School office.
The team’s responsibility is to give support and aid to all students
who are referred for academic, drug/alcohol, and/or mental health concerns.
