Student Assistance ProgramThe Student Assistance Program Team is a group of administrators, counselors, nurses, and teachers within the Dingman Delaware Middle School that works to support students who are identified as being “at risk.” Students can be at risk for any number of things including, but not limited to: grades, social issues, mental health issues, drug and alcohol issues, etc. Students can be referred to our team by teachers, administrators, counselors, students, and parents.
When we receive a referral, we work on the platform of I.R.S. First, we Identify potential issues. When warranted, we Research/Review the issues through a collection of information gathered from the student’s teachers, counselor, nurse, and assistant principal. Finally, we formulate a plan to Support the student to help him/her to reach his/her highest potential.
We also want to work closely with you. Your involvement and support are an integral part of a successful resolution to any concerns that your child may be experiencing at school.
