Nonpublic School Services
Download Act 89 program brochureRiverview Intermediate Unit #6 provides Math, Reading, Speech/ Language and special needs consultant services for students in nonpublic schools in Clarion, Forest, Jefferson, and Venango Counties.
Auxiliary services includes guidance, counseling and testing services, psychological services, services for exceptional children, remedial services, speech and hearing services, services for the improvement of the educationally disadvantaged (such as, but not limited to, teaching English as a second language), and other secular, neutral, nonideological services of a supplementary and remedial nature.
These state-funded services are provided directly by Riverview Intermediate Unit to students enrolled in a nonprofit private school within the intermediate unit service territory. 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. These are not services that would carry an individualized entitlement for students but, rather, are provided subject to limitations of funding appropriated annually in the state budget.
