The Verona Area School District is dedicated to helping all students be successful. Success for students means ensuring that each has appropriate educational opportunities to allow each to achieve his/her potential and be prepared for a successful adult life.  Part of our district's 
commitment to that success is having a variety of student services professionals available within our schools. Student Services professionals include:  School Counselors, School Social Workers, and School Psychologists. 

The goal of Student Services is to assist in students' intellectual, emotional, physical, social and vocational development.  Student Services staff are key to helping student's develop proactive and positive approaches to handling everyday situations, planning for the future, as well as overcoming any barriers to learning that might otherwise result in poor academic performance or inhibits students in meeting individual goals.  Student Services staff work hand-in-hand with classroom teachers, as well as other school and district personnel, families and the community.  This collaborative approach provides students and families with a wide variety of supports and opportunities to help ensure a successful learning opportunity for each of our students.
