ESY hours increased

I learned yesterday in my child's IEP meeting that summer school has been increased to 4.5 hours a day for all students. It will remain a four week program. Children with autism who attend ESY will receive 4.5 hours for six weeks, as planned. 

This is an important step in the right direction and remedies the district's unilateral decision to cut related services outside of the IEP process. 

Unfortunately, this does not remedy the disparity between related services for students with autism and those with other disabilities that have a severe impact. This is, I think, an issue for CAC to work on as we move forward into the new school year.
