ESY SUMMER 2020
Maine Township HSD 207 is conducting Extended School Year (ESY) services for the summer of 2020 via an online E-Learning format. There is no fee for the program and we will run from Monday, June 15 through Thursday, July 23rd during the hours of 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and there will be no sessions on Fridays. *Note that the four (4) hours of daily instruction will be a combination of synchronous learning (i.e. online in real-time) and asynchronous learning (i.e. occurring through appropriate online channels without real-time interaction).
Our staff will include Special Education Teachers, Teacher Assistants, Speech-Language Pathologist, Psychologists, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, and other related service personnel. The purpose of ESY is to help students maintain current skill levels and to continue working toward their individual IEP goals. In order to participate in ESY, the student’s ‘active IEP’ must indicate a need for ESY services determined by the IEP team.
Detailed information will be sent to registered families via email (School Messenger) and will be posted at this link: ESY 2020 – Communication Archive
