Student Assistance Counselor

About the SAC

Dover School District has established a comprehensive Student Assistance Program to help students. The Student Assistance Program provides education, prevention, early identification, referrals, and intervention as well as individual and group support. Our Student Assistance Counselor is here to help you and your child.

What is a Student Assistance Counselor?

A Student Assistance Counselor (SAC) assists students with any personal issue that negatively impacts their learning or emotional development. The SAC meets with students on an individual or small group basis to help them develop coping skills and solve problems.

Parents sometimes seek the assistance of the SAC for information, intervention and referral services. Faculty members often request the support of the SAC in order to identify individual students in need of help. The SAC may also provide training to staff on a wide range of issues that may impact student behavior and functioning in the classroom.

All conversations between students and the SAC are confidential. However, issues related to suicidal or homicidal intent or child abuse are not protected by the federal confidentiality laws.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child’s SAC:

Mrs. Victoria Szabo, MA, LPC
