Extended School Year 2018
School Committee Presentation
Premise: All students regress, and recoup skills in first few weeks of school.
Purpose of ESY:
To provide only those services needed to prevent such substantial regression that students are unable to recoup their skills @similar rates as typical peers.
To provide services to students that require a comprehensive 12 month program in order to continue to make progress, as gaps in service are often devatstating to student progress.
97 students recommended. Presented a significant challenge this year as many students (20-30) were not recommended until the late spring. Need to figure this out. Created last minute expansion and then retraction (parent required to choose)
WE MUST be ready to sevice all, and parents can decide at the last week they want to attend and need transportation.
Comprehensive classrooms for students who require consistent routines and schedules, as well as instruction in order to prevent substantial regression and delayed recoupment.
