Extended School Year Program

12-Month Preschool, Related Services and Classroom Programs

The Extended School Year Program is for children, ages 3-21, who have severe disabilities and are in need of a full-year program to sustain their learning and maintain their developmental levels.  Students will receive instruction and/or intervention as specified in their Individual Educational Plan (IEP).

The program is conducted for a 30-day period during the summer months of July and August. Referrals to the program are made by the local school district Committee on Special Education (CSE) for school-age children, and by the local school district Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) for children ages 3 - school age.
