Extended School Year (ESY)

 
To prevent summer learning loss, the Extended School Year (ESY) program will serve qualifying special education students after the bell rings on the last day of school. This will avoid an interruption in their education, loss of basic skills and regression of progress made on Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals.  Students will continue to learn math and reading skills needed to succeed when they return to school in the fall.  The program will also focus on other areas including socialization, vocational instruction and community awareness.  Enrichment activities include classroom visits from the Humane Society, the Pittsburgh Fire Department, museums and libraries. 
 
The ESY program is supervised by Program for Students with Exceptionalities and is staffed by certified Pittsburgh Public Schools special education teachers and support staff.  During the school year, IEP teams determine a student's eligibility through data collection and/or observation . They review factors, such as maintenance of skills and independence from caregivers.
