What Does New Story Wyomissing School offer?
New Story Wyomissing is a private school, licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, for students ages 14 to 21 years who are in need of a full time Autistic Support placement and require a higher level of support than what their home school district can provide. The following services and features are provided at New Story Wyomissing:
• Behavior Consultation and Support
• Crisis Intervention
• Transition Services
• Health and Physical Education
• Occupational Therapy
• Speech Therapy
• Small classroom environment
• High staff to student ratio
• Standards aligned academic curriculum
How and when are students enrolled?
A referral for placement can be made at any time. Students do not have to begin at the start of a calendar period or quarter, but can be enrolled anytime at New Story. We work collaboratively with the school district in order to decide if New Story will meet a child’s academic and behavioral needs.
Who pays the tuition?
Funding for the student’s educational placement will be arranged through the home school district along with transportation services.
Can a child return to his or her home school after spending time at New Story Wyomissing?
Absolutely – that’s our goal! The planning process for returning every student to his/her home school begins at the time of enrollment and continues throughout a student’s time at New Story.
We are committed to working individually with each student until his/her educational and behavioral goals are met, and the student has the skills and motivation needed to return to his/her home school.
Will my child be assigned homework?
Homework is not assigned on a regular basis. Students are given opportunities during the school day to complete all assigned work. However, it may be assigned more regularly as the student begins to transition back to their home school setting.
What supplies does my child need to bring?
All New Story students will be provided with the necessary supplies such as pens, pencils, and notebooks. Students are required to bring in their own lunch.
Is transportation provided by New Story schools?
Transportation to and from New Story schools is provided by the student’s home school district. For more information about transportation, please contact your school districts Special Education Department.
