Colonial students receive a wide array of basic and supplemental services, including special education, counseling and school health programs. More than 800 students qualify for individualized education programs (IEPs) due to specific disabilities, and approximately 200 students have gifted individual education programs. Fourteen school counselors support students in grades K-12, and four community counselors offer additional supplemental services.
School health services are provided by certified school nurses and staff nurses to all Colonial students as well as students attending non-public schools within the District. Routine health services include height, weight, vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings. Dental examinations and physical examinations are also provided according to provisions of the Pennsylvania School Code.
Additional supports to students and families include the services of a home and school visitor and a behavioral health adviser.
The Foundation is working with Food Services and Pupil Services to provide weekend meals to needy families.
Summer Literacy Blast, Summer Academy, and Extended School Year blend academics and activities to prep students for a new school year.
Principals, district office staff, psychologists, counselors, teachers, and nurses took part in professional development to determine if a student is threatening to do harm to themselves or others — and review what to do about it.
Whether a student is experiencing a minor emotional or behavioral issue or a family needs to know where their child can receive treatment, the District has resources to help.
High-quality health care coverage from CHIP helps keep kids strong. No limit on income.
