2018 Extended School Year Dates Set!  2/13/2018

As families are planning summer vacations and scheduling camp and other experiences for their children this summer, the Student Services Department is also actively planning for Extended School Year (ESY) for students whose 
disabilities place them at risk for substantial regression.  We are pleased to provide this summer's ESY dates to assist with planning.  Programs will run for six weeks, from Monday, July 9 - Thursday, August 16, 2018.  Programming will mirror the structure and schedule from 2017.  Registration forms and more detailed information will be mailed home to parents/guardians of children requiring ESY, during the April vacation.  Please contact your child's Liaison, Evaluation Team Chairperson, or the Special Education Office with any questions.  We are looking forward to another successful Extended School Year experience!
