Parent Involvement Program

The Parent Involvement Program (PIP) is a psycho-educational learning experience for APS students with their parents. These evening groups  focus on substance use and parent/teen communication issues in the home, at school, and in our community.  PIP’s purpose is not to lay blame, but to consider positive options for the future. Generally, a PIP referral is made after a student receives a drug and/or alcohol violation at school, but a parent and student may together attend voluntarily with the Crossroads facilitator's permission. Following a suspension determined by the administrator, the student and guardian are required to attend the program. A PIP contract regarding the substance abuse prevention classes (evenings once a week for 3 weeks) is completed by the administrator and student and guardian/parent. Failure to complete the PIP program can result in the administration of additional consequences.  Following the completion of PIP, students receive follow-up services and become part of the general Crossroads caseload.
