The Scranton School for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children
Handbook for Students and Parents (2020-2021)
The Scranton School for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children, a program of the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, is a private, state-funded academic school approved by the Department of Education. This tuition-free school provides a unique opportunity for deaf and hard of hearing children learn the skills necessary for them to enter the world of education and employment that awaits them upon graduation. Private funding is used for renovations and for program enhancements.
In a brief fashion, this manual provides some information on academic schedules, dormitory life, after-school opportunities, and general school regulations. We hope this information will help to create a positive understanding and cooperative effort among the parents, the school, and the students. Please click the image below to review the 20-21 Handbook and download a personal copy. Although this handbook has been designed to answer many of the questions asked by students and their parents, it is not intended to replace personal contact between students, parents, and administrators. The Chief Executive Officer, Director, Principal, and the entire staff are available throughout the year for student guidance, parent conferences, and any questions you might have regarding your child’s program. If parents or students have questions regarding school policy, they should contact an administrator for clarification. The Scranton School is committed to parental involvement in their child’s programs.
We look forward to a productive year!
