Act 89 Auxiliary Services

  • Act 89 Auxiliary Services To Non-Public Schools
    Each year the Pennsylvania budget allocates funds to support auxiliary services for non-public schools under the provisions of ACT 89 of 1975.  The Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 provides services to eligible schools in Carbon and Lehigh counties. Regulations, procedures, and guidelines are issued by the state Department of Education.  The funds are allocated based on the number of students enrolled in private, nonprofit, approved schools, K-12. With these funds, a program of services are designed and built to what best supports all of the students within the nonpublic schools in the Carbon and Lehigh Counties.

    To participate in Act 89, Non-public School Services Programs, eligible schools must apply to:
