It is the goal of Montgomery County Public Schools to engage, empower, and encourage every student to success. Each school’s Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a team approach to helping students access necessary resources needed to be successful in both the school and community. Each school’s Student Assistance Program (SAP) strives to promote academic, social, and emotional well-being. To ensure this success, individualized services are developed through tiered systems of support.

Student Assistance Programs (SAP) are created to identify, refer, and engage students. This team is a broad-based, flexible approach to prevention services and supports. Parent involvement, engagement and participation is crucial in this process. The goal of the Student Assistance Program Team is to build resiliency in youth while empowering them for academic and emotional success. To make a referral or for more information, contact your Tiered Intervention Specialist.


These documents will provide additional information and resources about Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports (VTSS/PBIS), Student Assistance Programming, mental health and behavioral interventions and much more. We also want it to be a place to celebrate all of the great work happening in schools everyday, so please email Jennifer Baldwin (jbaldwin@mcps.org) if you would like to add a CELEBRATION from your school.
