EXTENDED SCHOOL YEAR (ESY)
The Extended School Year (ESY) is a five (5) week, five (5) day summer program for students with disabilities whose Individualized Education Plan (IEP) Teams have identified to be at risk of substantial regression of skills over the summer.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, ESY instruction for Summer 2020 will be offered completely remote. We are collaborating with various teams to make this a productive summer that will offer rigorous instruction and support for students who are eligible.
The Program will operate:Monday, July 6, 2020 - Friday, August 7, 2020Instructional Hours: 9am-12pm
