Texas Association of
Student Assistance Professionals
TASAP is a non profit association formed to support and serve the
SAP professionals in Texas.
Outcomes of the SAP
an identification and intervention program, the SAP is effective
in several key areas. The SAP has a direct impact on the grades,
attendance, and behavior of the identified student. Tracking should
provide evidence of grades improving, better attendance, and more
appropriate classroom behavior. The SAP should also have an impact
on the overall school. For example, the SAP should result in the
overall number of discipline, drug, alcohol, and weapons violation
to decline. In addition, attendance and drop out rates are positively
affected, as are teacher turnover rates.
