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.
