In any case the following are the dates and locations for the Training Sessions:
MSAT is a three day workshop in which educators learn about the components of a comprehensive program to reach at risk students. The workshops are designed to prepare existing or new school-based teams to help young people who are involved with, or in danger of becoming involved with, some of the twenty-first century’s biggest dangers to young people-alcohol and drugs, violence, gangs, or bullying. There are students who suffer from depression – young people who are missing school… in short, there are young people at risk of becoming a burden to society, and every school sees these problems. This program is an effective approach to dealing with these.

Who attends? – Members of a school based student assistance team consisting of administrators, teachers and counselors, and others. The program is appropriate for all levels – elementary, middle and high school. A school district may send more than one team.

Benefits – Recent reports from new Jersey, Pennsylvania, and California continue to show the effectiveness of the program. MSAT-trained schools report higher test scores, improved attendance, decreased violence and bullying, fewer disruptions, better behavior, fewer referrals to the Committee on Special Education (CSE), decreased substance abuse, increased promotions, more graduations, and more confident teachers.
