Student Support Services
Extended School Year
Extended School Year (ESY)
The Extended School Year (ESY) program at The Maryland School for the Blind (MSB) provides services during the summer months to students with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities. ESY programming may be offered to a student who regresses significantly in academic, social and/or related skills that are outlined in that child's Individualized Educational Program (IEP) when the child is out of school for an extended period of time.
MSB's goal for ESY services is to facilitate the maintenance of each student’s current level of performance on identified objectives in his/her IEP. Students are engaged in a host of IEP tasks, curriculum-based lessons, and other fun activities over the course of each prescribed program.
The 2013 ESY program will run July 8 - August 1.
