Services For Students In Non-Public Schools
If a parent/guardian feels that their child may have a disability that would require supports, there are two options:
- If the parent does not intend to send his/her child to a public school, then a request through the Allegheny Intermediate Unit for an Equitable Participation Evaluation is advised. Recommendations will be based on services/supports available through the nonpublic school. Wilkinsburg School District does not provide special education supports within nonpublic schools.
- If public education is a consideration, an evaluation can be conducted by the Wilkinsburg School District certified school psychologist. Parents may request a multidisciplinary evaluation through a written request to the Office of Special Education (WSD Special Education Department, 718 Wallace Avenue, Wilkinsburg, PA 15221). The student must be registered in the Wilkinsburg School District system as a student residing in the District so forms can be generated. The student can continue at the nonpublic school during the evaluation, but if the child qualifies as a student with a disability, recommendations will only be provided as they pertain to special education within a public setting.
