School Counseling Mission Statement:
Port Allegany School District believes in providing innovative educational services that enable students to acquire and apply the knowledge necessary to become respectful, responsible, self-directed learners. The School Counseling Department sees it as our mission to act as advocates for all students in developing and meeting appropriate academic, career, and personal/ social goals that promote a lifetime of success. Through data measurement and consultation with parents, teachers, and staff, we determine the needs of the students of our district and provide access to individual and group counseling sessions, classroom guidance lessons, and community support services to ensure that all students are challenged and supported to achieve to their highest potential.
Philosophy on School Counseling:
We believe that all 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 the various opportunities that education has to offer.
