Nonpublic School Services

ACT 89

Act 89 is a state-funded program that provides a variety of auxiliary services to eligible nonpublic schools. Services provided by the intermediate unit include remedial instruction in the curricular areas of reading and mathematics, enrichment, and standardized testing. These services are provided directly by the local intermediate unit to students enrolled in a nonprofit private school within the intermediate unit's service region. The school must affirm the eligibility of students and facilitate the delivery of services. The local intermediate unit makes the final determination regarding what services shall be provided after consulting with the nonpublic school to determine which general categories of children shall receive services, what services shall be provided, how and where the services shall be provided, and how the services shall be evaluated.
