What is ESS?

"ESS" is a program of instructional and services provided by schools for students who need additional time to achieve expected outcomes. The Extended School Services (ESS) program has been designed to be a proactive program, which seeks to diminish academic problems before they become recurring long-term problems for the student. Through early intervention, the performance gap between ESS students and their peers is closed instead of allowed to widen..
