The Port Angeles Education Foundation’s Student Needs Committee awards funds to purchase medical and dental services, mental health counseling, and supplies necessary for students to participate and perform well in school. District personnel have come to rely upon this safety net to meet basic needs of students in the district.
Teachers, school counselors, principals and other school staff may complete an application identifying the student need, acknowledging other funding sources have been explored, and verifying the student is low income. Persons interested in participating in this program should contact their school principal or student counselor.
There are no administrative expenses associated with the Port Angeles Education Foundation’s distribution of Student Needs funds. The PAEF Student Needs Committee works with Port Angeles businesses to set up accounts so needs can be immediately met, and the business assured of payment.
Major Contributors to this fund include:
- The Albert Haller Foundation
