SARASOTA COUNTY, July 31, 2017 – The Pupil Support Services Department of Sarasota County Schools will host the 2017 Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Summer Institute from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 2 and 3, at Suncoast Polytechnical High School.  

The ESE Summer Institute was founded to provide learning experiences for teachers of students with disabilities and special needs, support personnel on campus and school administrators. The theme of this year’s Institute is “Closing the Achievement Gap.” The schedule will include teacher presentations on data and technology, positive behavior support and integrating the arts into the curriculum.

“One of our responsibilities as educators is to ensure that we are always at the forefront, providing the best methods and information for our staff and teachers,” said Sonia Figaredo-Alberts, executive director of Pupil Support Services. “Through events like the 2017 ESE Summer Institute, we bring together exceptional instructional staff from all our schools and foster an environment of sharing, teaching and learning. Our students deserve the best. When we give our staff and teachers the opportunity for continued and advanced learning opportunities it helps students with special needs thrive and succeed, regardless of the obstacles they may face.”

Suncoast Polytechnical High School is located at 4650 S. Beneva Road in Sarasota.
