Our Extended School Year (ESY) Summer Therapeutic Program is designed to support children with emotional, behavioral and/or autistic support needs who qualify for ESY services and who would benefit from educational/therapeutic programming. The goal of this program is for students to maintain previously acquired or learned academic, social/behavioral, communication, or other skills identified within their Individualized Education Program (IEP).
ESY eligibility is determined by each student’s IEP team in accordance with state and federal regulations.
