Extended School Year Program
PSD provides an Extended School Year (ESY) program (20 days) in July and August for deaf and hard of hearing students up to age 21 who reside in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties . Our ESY program encompasses a range of options in providing programs in excess of the traditional 180-day school year. ESY is a way to maintain progress when issues of regression and recoupment are considerable over school breaks. ESY services are determined by the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP).
