Student Support Services Homepage

Wattsburg Area School District strives to provide a variety of support services to the students in the school district. These services range from on-going teacher interventions within the classroom environments, to pull-out services and programs, and building level teams to provide support. The goal of the support services is to give students the supports, programs, and services that they need to be successful within school environments. The following is a brief description of the support services that are available within the Wattsburg Area School District.

Building Level Team:

There are building level teams at each of our schools. The teams consist of building adminstrators, representative from special education, guidance counselor, mental health specialist and other members as needed for each student. The goal of the team is to discuss any student who is referred to the team for difficulty in school academically, socially, or behaviorally. The team works to develop interventions that may be effective in supporting the student in the school environment.

Student Assistance Program (SAP):

The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program (SAP) is to help students who are experiencing academic and/ behavioral difficulities that are barriers to the student’s ability to be successful in the learning environment. SAP provides support in each building for students and their families. Services that students may receive through SAP are; mental health assessments/referrals, individual counseling, group counseling, and/or a referral to drug and alcohol counseling.
