Extended School Year (ESY) services are designed to help your child maintain his skills rather than lose ground when school is not in session.
ESY is not the same as summer school, summer remedial programs, or child care. ESY is not limited to the summer months.
Will your child regress during the school break this Spring? This break can be a good time to collect data and information to support the need for ESY services to maintain your child's skill level.
Yet, regression-recoupment is not the only standard for determining if your child is eligible for ESY.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, you will find out what ESY is - and is NOT. Learn about the legal standards for ESY, advocacy strategies that will help you negotiate for ESY, and how to overcome roadblocks to ESY services.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
