Families enjoy dinner at the 2018 SES Family Engagement Night

On Behalf of the team at SES, we would like to thank the providers and families who came out to meet and discuss the students' progress, and shared opportunities to join groups outside of school.  We are excited to announce that over half the families came out to join us for last night's event.  A special thanks to Ms. Sara Thronhill and Ms. Katie Harris for organizing last night's event.  Your dedication made last night a great success.

Welcome to the School for Exceptional Studies's Therapeutic Token Economy.  In life, we all are rewarded for our hard work and proper interaction with our community and its citizens, by earning a salary and being able to use the money we make to purchase items.  The SES Banking System exists to replicate this experience for our students, where they also earn a salary for having proper interactions within the school community.  Based on a set criteria of adhering the requirements of earning points on the SES Pointsheet, points and levels translate to a determined weekly pay allotment of specific SES Cash.  Separate for standard money, SES Cash is currency that is only valid for use at the School for Exceptional Studies.

 

Every Friday, students visit the SES Bank where they apply new pay to their balances.  While at the bank, students are able to purchase items from the display case.  Students with perfect attendance for the whole week are able to spin the attendance wheel for prizes.  If you are visiting SES, take a look at the display case.  It is located outside the main office.

Every year, students with disabilities who turn 22 years old become too old to attend Massachusetts Public Schools. This can be a confusing time for these students and their families. On January 23rd, SES and the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) teamed up to conduct a training for students and families. Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday's training and for DDS in teaming up to present. Any SES families looking for further information for students soon to become 22 years old, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
