The SAT team is a group of professionals who work together to reach out to students who are struggling academically, emotionally, with mental health issues, drugs or alcohol. The NCMS SAT team is comprised of school personnel and staff from community agencies.
Anyone can refer a student to SAT - parents, students, teachers, or the student them self.
Students are often referred to the SAT team for sudden drop in grades, withdrawal from friends, depression, lying or experimenting with drugs/alcohol.
The SAT team works closely with parents to develop strategies to help the student. Every student who is referred to SAT needs parent permission. SAT is a volunteer program. Both students and parents have to sign for the student to be helped through SAT.
The student may meet with a Teenline counselor or drug/alcohol counselor from Cumberland-Perry Drug and Alcohol Agency.
SAT is a CONFIDENTIAL process and the student's privacy is respected at all times.
The NCMS members of SAT have a yellow star outside their classroom.
