What Is MAP?

MAP is the Montoursville Area High School Student Assistance Program.

The mission of the MAP team is to assist students in overcoming a variety of problems, to remain in school, achieve academic success and advance toward meeting graduation requirements.

The role of the MAP team is to build a working partnership with families, focus on students’ successes and assist families in identifying options for professional support when the issue is beyond the services of the school.

The Montoursville Assistance Program (MAP) team is made up of teachers, the school nurse, school counselors, administrators and appropriate agencies from the community. Every MAP team member has received formal training through a state-endorsed program for identifying “at-risk” behaviors in students who are experiencing school-related problems. The MAP team will then refer these students to the appropriate school and community resources.
