The purpose of ESY is to help some of our more significant special education students maintain the learning that has occurred during the past year. Our ESY Building Coordinators will be selecting teachers and teaching assistants for our ESY positions from the pool of applicants. The ESY Building Coordinators will base staff selections on their previous experience working with applicants and the recommendations from teachers who have worked with our students during the school year. Each year we do hire a number of college age graduates and college students with appropriate certification as a way to introduce them to the prospect of a career in education or to offer practical classroom experience for those studying to be teachers.
