Office of Safe & Supportive Schools
Derry Township School District and the Office of Safe and Supportive Schools are committed to providing for the health, safety, and welfare of all students, staff, and visitors. We have adopted a Comprehensive plan that raises the bar for student achievement within a safe learning environment and prepares each and every child to be successful as global citizens in the 21st Century. In doing this, it is imperative that any barriers to student learning also be addressed.
Professional school counselors are certified educators with a minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling. School counselors are uniquely qualified to address all students’ academic, personal/social and career development needs by designing, implementing, evaluating and enhancing a comprehensive school counseling program that promotes and enhances student success
Derry Township’s school psychologists and masters/doctoral level school psychology interns help children and youth succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with administrators, educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school.
School Nurses/ Health Services
