Student Assistance Program

As part of the Ohio School Wellness Initiative, Ohio’s Model Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a school-based framework, designed to provide a variety of services that are focused on prevention of non-academic barriers to learning. SAP is a comprehensive approach that allows for universal services  as well as targeted services and interventions based on student need. Ohio’s SAP model provides a continuum of care that incorporates: building awareness, prevention, early identification, evidence-based intervention, referral processes, and guided support services in order to increase students’ overall well-being and achievement. SAP is a critical part of providing a Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) in alignment with the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) tiers of support.

SAP Framework

SAP is a fluid process with many variables in order to support learners. Tallmadge City Schools is committed to doing everything possible with the resources we have available to help ALL students succeed.  If it is determined that a student would benefit from or is in need of services through SAP, the parent/guardian will be contacted on an individual basis. 

Questions concerning SAP at Tallmadge City Schools can be directed to Erin Pavlic, BHW Coordinator.
