Storm forces extra day for district’s special education summer program


The Rome school district’s special education summer school program for grades K-6, being held at Joy Elementary School, will be extended by a day due to a power outage in part of the city that closed the Joy building on Tuesday, the district announced.

The program now will conclude on Monday, Aug. 13, instead of the previously scheduled date on Friday, Aug. 10, the district said.

Meanwhile, the special education summer school program for grades 7-12, which is held at Rome Free Academy, was not affected and will conclude as planned on Aug. 10, the district added.

Also unaffected was the schedule for the school district’s “accelerated summer ‘444’” enrichment program for students who will be in kindergarten to grade 6, which is at Gansevoort Elementary School.

Although the Gansevoort building was closed Tuesday because of the power outage, its schedule will remain the same, the district noted. The program there is to continue through July 26.
