    2020 Extended School Year (ESY) Eligibility

    Newmark K-8 and High School provides an Extended School Year (ESY) Program for our students who are eligible through your local school district.  In order to be eligible for ESY, it must be agreed upon by the IEP Team which includes you, your school district Child study team and Newmark. The determination is made at the annual IEP meeting.
    This year, as in past years, we require that parents and school districts confirm if their student will be attending ESY no later than May 1, 2020. We cannot guarantee placement into the ESY program after that date. Because your student attends Newmark does not make them automatically eligible for ESY. If your student attended last year, they should qualify. To clarify:
    If you have already had your IEP meeting and it was decided your student is attending ESY, then you don't need to do anything. Please read important letter from Dr. Peter, Executive Director

    2020 ESY Dates:  Wednesday, July 1 through Friday, July 24, 2020
