Alternative Education for Disruptive Youth (AEDY)

At the direction of the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, PaTTAN has been directed to provide technical assistance, monitoring and support to LEA and private Alternative Education for Disruptive Youth Program (AEDY) providers.

Pennsylvania's AEDYs provide a combination of intense, individual academic instruction and behavior modification counseling in an alternative setting to assist students in returning successfully to their regular classroom.

Program approval is required for any Local Education Agency (LEA) implementing an internal program or utilizing an approved private provider. Programs are required to meet minimum requirements in order to obtain approval.

We now have an AEDY Website
