Role of the SAC
The Student Assistance Program in Howell is designed to enhance student success and performance in the school.
The Student Assistance Coordinator provides in-school assessment, intervention, counseling, and referral services to any student who may be experiencing personal, family, and/or peer difficulties. The goal is to support the students and prevent personal difficulties from interfering with their success in school.
The SAC provides:
- Assistance to families and students with alcohol and drug issues.
- Support for students with any personal issue.
- Recommendations for additional services/referrals to community agencies.
- Many parents contact the SAC to discuss a potential problem or ask for help in connecting with community resources.
Counseling is not always about getting advice... Rather, it is a process you and a counselor can explore and work together to develop healthy and effective coping skills.
