Extended School Year Services

Summer dreamsFor those readers whose kids are still in school, are you starting extended school year services this week?  We have a one month program, five days per week from 8:45 - 1:34pm.   Services are 50% of what is offered during the school year.  Our public school program is 4 days per week. My daughter and I prefer 5! What do you have? If anything? And what would you prefer?



My 18 yo is receiving ESY for the first time this Summer. The school is offering this support as a compensatory measure because of the lack of services during Covid (and the litigious nature of our town). Although my expectations are low, I hope my daughter benefits from the time.

Yes, I like 5 days better than 4. Caring, trained, supported, well-paid teachers would be great as well.

We have 5 days a week from 7:15 am to 1:45 pm for 6 weeks here in Jacksonville, FL. It is called ESY in the summer here.

My son has 8:15 to 12:15, five days a week at the school's transition program. I found out yesterday the teacher resigned. The teacher before him, quit mid-year, two months before the lockdown. A double excuse for the nothingness that ensued. I would prefer teachers who think our kids are worthy of an education.
