Special Education Law & Advocacy Training Schedule

During Military Appreciation Month, we show appreciation for all members of the military and their children and families who also support and serve.

Exceptional military kids experience unique issues, frequent school transfers, different levels of instructional programming, and the emotional issues that accompany the deployment of family members.

While these children often possess remarkable resilience, they also experience formidable challenges as they cope with frequent educational transition. - OSEP

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate we say thank you to military family members. Learn about the challenges they face, repeatedly, as they move from place to place. Find information for military families who are relocating and advocating for special education services.

We hope you will forward this series to other friends, families, or colleagues.

We're Military and Move a Lot - What about ESY?

For military kids transferring schools in the summer – what about Extended School Year Services (ESY)?

When kids, who have ESY in the IEP, transfer to a new school during the summer, OSEP says the new school district generally must provide ESY services as comparable services.
