The Pennsylvania Department of Education is investigating a Bala Cynwyd company's alternative-education program in Bucks County after finding a series of problems in the company's program in Reading.
Department spokesman Timothy Eller confirmed Tuesday that state authorities were gathering and examining information about Delaware Valley High School's operations in Warminster. The program serves students with academic and disciplinary problems from school districts in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.
Eller declined to provide additional information about the state's review. But sources with knowledge of Delaware Valley's operations said the department had requested information about the school's academic program and counseling services.
Last month, the Reading School District canceled its contract with lawyer David T. Shulick's company after the state began the process of revoking approval. An Education Department investigation had found academic shortcomings and problems with violence at Delaware Valley High School's program in Reading.
