ESL (English as a Second Language)
English as a Second Language (ESL) program for the District is a scope and sequence that builds and develops linguistic proficiency for non-native English speakers. All students are assured a high quality English linguistic learning experience based on the six language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, critical thinking/learning strategies, and culture.
Student Assistance Program (SAP)
A specially trained team of staff members is available to offer assistance to students. The Elementary School program, called SAP, consists of an intervention team staffed by teachers, the guidance counselor, school nurse, administrator, and appropriate support agencies for the county (Mental Health and Retardation, Drug and Alcohol, and Juvenile Court Offices) trained to identify and refer "at risk" students for appropriate treatment. High risk concerns include: substance abuse, sexual abuse, depression and suicide prevention. Referrals for high-risk students may come from students, parents, teachers, counselors, or any employee of the district. Anyone concerned about the emotional or physical well-being of a student is encouraged to contact a member of SAP. Information about the program is available by calling the principal or a team member at 570-427-8687.

The Weatherly Area Elementary/Middle School provides 5 learning support programs and has 2 multiple disabilities classes for students with special needs, each with a highly qualified teacher.
