Student & Family Assistance Program (SFAP)
A healthy home and family helps to nurture academic excellence. To promote healthy homes, minds and families, East Middle School is proud to offer the Student and Family Assistance Program. The Student and Family Assistance Program (SFAP), sponsored by the Aurora Employee Assistance Program, is a FREE benefit provided to all families and students of Oak Creek High School, East Middle School and West Middle School.
The SFAP is 100% confidential as specified by both state and federal laws. There is no cost to the student or family member for any services provided by the SFAP.
The SFAP offers in-person or phone consultations with Master’s level counselors. Families that use the SFAP can receive (up to) six consultations per issue. Many issues can generally be resolved within the SFAP itself. If other referrals are needed, your SFAP counselor will connect you to community resources and/or insurance-based providers.
