iHOPE-NYC opens its doors at 7:30 a.m. every morning to allow students to arrive early and have their breakfast. The school is open until 5:00 p.m. every day to allow all of the related services to be provided in one location and based upon the time of the day that is most appropriate for the student. This also allows for the students to return home around the same time as many parents/caregivers are returning from work. This eliminates the need for parents/caregivers to find highly specialized babysitting for a couple of hours each day while coordinating any additional related services the student may need.
Daily schedules are highly individualized based on the needs of each student in attendance at iHOPE-NYC, and according to their Individualized Education Plan (IEP); therefore, no student’s schedule looks alike.
A possible schedule of a typical iHOPE student could be the following:
|7:30 a.m.-9:00||Arrival, Breakfast, Homeroom|
|9:00-9:45||Academic Class 1 (ELA)|
|9:45-10:30||Related Service 1|
|11:15-12:00 p.m.||Academic Class 2 (Math)|
|12:00-12:45||Related Service 2|
|1:30-2:15||Academic Class 3 (Science/Social Studies)|
|3:45-4:30||Related Service 3|
The daily schedule is designed around what is best for the student and his/her family, maintaining our commitment to our Principle, “Family First!”
