Student Services

At Jeff Tech, our goal is to provide our students with the answers and resources they need for positive learning experiences. From helping you plan for your future to teaching you how to stay healthy and focused while you’re here, our staff is here to support you.

Guidance Office

The Jeff Tech Guidance Office serves each student in many ways, providing individual counseling to help students set goals and learn to solve their own educational, vocational, and personal problems. Our primary function is to serve students. 

Our guidance counselors are here to help our students and their families be successful, lifelong learners. Students and parents should feel free to consult with their counselors at any time during the school year. Take a moment to learn more about:

Student Health

We are fully committed to the health of our students. Our health services staff looks after each student’s physical and mental well being while on our campus.

Jeff Tech Nurse’s Office

The school nurse is an important team member at Jeff Tech. We encourage all students to visit the nurse’s office, located next to Student Services, to discuss health issues during school hours. Before reporting to the nurse's office, except in the case of emergency, students must obtain a pass from an instructor, counselor, or administrator.

The Jeff Tech nurse is available for first aid, illness, and injury treatment. In the case of illness or injury, the nurse will determine if it is medically necessary for the student to go home or to seek medical attention, in which case, the nurse will make the necessary arrangements. Students may not leave school without the permission of the nurse or an administrator.

Penn Highland's School-Based Telemedicine

Penn Highlands is excited to be working with Jeff Tech to offer parents and students a new option for pediatric care. Through high-definition telemedicine video and communications equipment, the school nurse can connect with a Penn Highlands physician for evaluation. This will make healthcare for children more convenient and accessible, avoid delays in treatment, and enhance learning by decreasing absenteeism. Learn more by visiting our Telemedicine Program page.
