School districts across PA will share millions to help students with behavioral problems

09.19.17 | Terry Diener

More than 24,000 Pennsylvania students are currently identified as having behavioral needs, which could lead to chronic absenteeism and inhibit post-graduate or career success.

To better help students, school districts across the commonwealth will receive funds to aid in ongoing professional development to ensure that every student can succeed.

The $7 million grant will begin in October and extend over the course of the next five years.
