EXTENDED SCHOOL YEAR (ESY)/SUMMER SCHOOL VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION PLAN
Extended School Year (Esy)/Summer School Virtual Instruction Plan
Due to the continued health risks associated with in-person school attendance, Solterra Academy will be providing ESY Services (Summer School) in a 100% virtual mode using the digital platforms we have been using since schools closed in March. The goal of our Continued Learning Opportunities during our ESY (Summer School) session will be to continue to address each student’s IEP goals and objectives to greatest extent possible given the circumstances.
ESY Services will begin on Monday, July 6th, and end on Friday, August 7th (5 weeks). Staff will be available to provide, academic instruction, counseling, and related services between the hours of 8:30 and 1:30 only. While we understand that these hours may constitute a hardship for some of our working families, we are asking that they be respected as closely as possible to protect our staff’s time with their own families this summer.
Due to the social nature of our summer programming, each teacher will be providing at least 1 hour of direct, whole group instruction for students via Zoom. The exact schedule of this time will vary depending on the teacher, and they will communicate that directly to their parents prior to the start of ESY/Summer School.
Counseling and Related Services
We will continue to provide periodic updates and messages throughout ESY/Summer School as we know more about what our full return to school will look like. Should you have questions during this time, the following are ways you can contact school personnel:
