Port Allegany School District believes in providing innovative educational services that enable students to acquire and apply knowledge necessary to become respectful, reponsible, self-directed learners. The School Counseling Department sees it as our mission to act as advocates for all students in developing and meeting academic, career, and personal/social goals that promotes a lifetime of success. Through data measurement and consultation with parents, teachers and staff it will be determined what needs our students have and any resources that are available will be utilized (individual counseling, group counseling, classroom guidance lessons and consultation with outside resources)to ensure all students are supported to achieve their highest potential.
Philosophy on School Counseling:
I believe that alll students can learn and should be treated with respect and valued regardless of academic progress, race, gender, sexual orientation, political beliefs, socio-economic status, or religious affiliation. All students should have equal access to various opportunities that education has to offer.
