Extended School Year
Monarch Extended School Year (ESY) is available to current Monarch School students ages five through 21, to help maintain the consistency of the school year. The small student to staff ratio is similar to that of the school year, as are the daily schedule and the use of technology including iPads, computers, SmartBoards, VizZle, and more.
Students engage in academic lessons, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, behavior support, and summer leisure skills including swimming, water play, sports, outdoor games, art, and music. Students work on fewer goals during ESY, enabling them to focus on the ones for which they experienced the most regression during winter and spring breaks. Data is collected on students' goals, and Progress Reports are distributed after the completion of the program.
The dates of this year's ESY are June 20 - July 14, 2022. It meets 4 days per week, Monday - Thursday, for 4 weeks (15 days total). School is closed for Independence Day on July 4, 2022. The hours are 8:25am - 2:50pm daily.
