WSD Family Resources

It is the mission of the Wissahickon School District to ensure that all students are provided the basic necessities (e.g. healthy breakfast and lunch, clothing and school supplies required by the district). It is also imperative that all students are given the opportunity to participate in curricular and co-curricular activities that enhance their academic, social, physical and emotional growth.

As such, the district offers waivers to families with financial need for various expenses and fees, including laptops, activity fees, PSAT/SATs and school-sponsored activities such as field trips. Additionally, there are scholarships and financial aid available through the support of various organizations, including our home and school associations.

We encourage you to review our Financial Assistance Protocols—Parent/Guardian Primer for information about the resources available to our families and who to contact for assistance. All requests for financial assistance are strictly confidential.
