The Berks County Intermediate Unit, through the Office of Early Childhood & Student Services, sponsors and conducts alternative education and emotional support classes at various sites throughout Berks County. Skilled teams of teachers and classroom specialists work closely to ensure students receive education in a supportive environment.
Ultimately, our goal is to prepare students for a successful return to a traditional school or for the completion of their formal secondary education.
Alternative education provides programming for students who have been unsuccessful in their home school district due to behavior problems or anti-social behavior; who have substance/chemical abuse issues; who have been charged with/convicted of a crime; who are in the country illegally or are awaiting a determination hearing; and/or who have been removed from their homes by order of the court and are awaiting placement.
Programming can be residential or school-based.
