Senior Jessica Vitz Job Shadows at the North Intermediate School

On Friday, April 6, 2018, WASD Career Coordinator Mrs. Colleen Edwards arranged for senior Jessica Vitz to job shadow with Mrs. Deborah Katz, Wallenpaupack North Intermediate School Counselor. Mrs. Katz discussed topics relating to psychology, counseling, and more specifically, crisis counseling. Jessica learned about different methods to help children, including the Student Assistance Program (SAP); this program helps students who are experiencing various difficulties, and the team devises interventions to address student needs.

"Talking with Mrs. Katz opened my mind to the possibility of working with young children. Originally, I thought I would be interested in working with teenagers and older students," noted Jessica. Mrs. Katz commented on the rewards of working in this career field, but also expressed how hard it can be at times.

Mrs. Edwards and Jessica are grateful to Mrs. Katz for this informative experience.

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2017-2018!

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
