Exemplary Programs
The Wallin School is a special program designed for non-traditional students in the Colonial School District. Currently, it houses an ILC program for special education students in grades 6-12, an Adult Integration Program for students with cognitive disabilities aged 18-21, and a drop-out prevention program for students from William Penn High School. The ILC program focuses on the academic, behavior and transition needs of students with a history of school-related behavior problems in an effort to provide them with effective strategies they can use to be successful in the general education setting. The Adult Integration Program focuses on the student’s academic and social-emotional skills to prepare them to work, live, and function in the community. The drop-out prevention program provides credit recovery opportunities for those students that have been unsuccessful in a traditional high school setting.
