Request For Summer Aides:
If you feel your child is in need of an aide to assist/shadow them at the summer programs, you must make a request through the Recreation Department by June 7th (No Exceptions). At the time of request you must submit a copy of your child’s I.E.P. Report (if you also have a 504 Plan please submit with your I.E.P.). Assignments will be made based on a review of your child’s documents and results of an interview. This will help determine the best strategy to assist your child in having a memorable and safe summer. After June 7th we will contact you to set up an interview. Once the summer program begins, aides cannot be hired.
