Act 89 is a state financed program designed to “provide auxiliary service to students attending nonpublic, nonprofit schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV takes pride in the continued growth and professional quality of services provided to nonpublic schools since the program was first established by the legislature on August 1, 1975.
Eligible nonpublic schools in the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV area may choose from the following Act 89 services:
Resource Teacher Services
Speech and Language Services
Elementary Counseling Services
Psychological Services, Instructional Support
DIBELS NEXT (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) Screening
Challenge of Champions / Team Problem-Solving Competition
The amount of service a school is entitled to is governed by the PA student enrollment in that school from the prior year.
