ASSOCIATION OF STUDENT ASSISTANCE
The Student Assistance Professionals of New Jersey define Student Assistance programs as a comprehensive framework for the delivery of K- 12 universal, targeted prevention/intervention strategies and programs. Student Assistance services are designed to address risk factors, promote protective factors, and increase overall success.
Student Assistance Programs address barriers to learning that impact the individual student in order to increase student success while improving school climate. Student Assistance Programs partner with parents, students, school resource officers, other school faculty, community coalitions, agencies, and services in seeking to remove barriers that impede student success.
