Extended School Year (ESY)

For Students with Disabilities

ESE Specialist Meeting

October 18, 2007

Presented by Dorett Wade


What is esy

What is ESY?

ESY refers to special education and related services beyond the normal calendar year for students with disabilities.

ESY is a set of activities designed to

assure maintenance of previously learned skills that would be significantly jeopardized if the student did not receive ESY services.


Legal requirement

Legal Requirement

Educators have the responsibility for development and delivery of a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to students with disabilities.

IDEA defines FAPE as special education and related services that are provided at public expense and are provided in accordance with an IEP.

ESY services may be provided as a part of the plan to provide a free and appropriate public education.


Determining the need for esy

Determining the Need for ESY

  • When?

    • annually

    • not prior to ending of 1st marking period

    • no later than the first week of April


Determining the need for esy1

Determining the Need for ESY

  • How?

    IEP Team Decision

    • Needs of the student

    • Direct, ongoing assessment of IEP goals

    • Data


Determining the need for esy2

Determining the Need for ESY

  • What data are appropriate?

    A variety of formal and informal measures:

    • Pre/post-tests before/after break

    • Reports of progress toward annual goals

    • Report cards

    • Teacher-made checklists

    • Work samples

    • Therapy logs

    • Anecdotal records

    • Frequency charts


Determining the need for esy3

Determining the Need for ESY

  • What criteria should be used?

    The primary criteria in determining a child’s need for ESY services are:

    • the likelihood of significant or substantial regression of previously learned critical life skills from the current IEP during break in service

      and

    • limited or delayed recoupment of these skills after services resume.

Determining the Need for ESY

Regression/Recoupment

Research shows that regression and recoupment occur in all children and will vary across skill, people, and circumstances.

For some children with disabilities, the regression

is significant or substantial and the recoupment period so long that without ESY services, the learning that occurred during the regular school calendar year would be significantly jeopardized.


Determining the need for esy5

Determining the Need for ESY

Other factors include, but are not limited to:

  • impact of disability

  • emerging skills

  • rate of progress

  • motor or communication skills


Factors to be considered when determining the need for esy services

Factors To Be Considered When Determining The Need For ESY Services

The IEP team must consider the following when determining the need for ESY Services:

Significant or substantial regression will occur on IEP goals/related services without extended school year services.

Emerging critical life skills will be significantly impacted without extended school year services.

Behaviors related to the disability will be significantly impacted without extended school year services.

Previously learned critical life skills/goals will be significantly impacted without extended school year services.


Esy services

ESY Services

ESY services are:

  • determined by the IEP team on an individual basis

  • intended to minimize or prevent significant or substantial regression.

  • concentrated on areas at risk for significant or substantial regression.

  • dictated by the needs of the student

  • NOT automatic year after year


Esy services1

ESY Services

Delivery of services include but are not limited to:

  • Home packets: if the IEP committee agrees that the needed services can be delivered through an individualized home packet for the student, the packet is developed at the school and provided to the parent.

  • Periodic student contact: perhaps 3-4 times during the summer to prevent regression.

  • On-the -job support

  • School based programs that the student attends for a specific number of hours each week.


All students with disabilities must be considered for esy

All Students with Disabilities Must Be Considered for ESY

There are two options to be considered

Option 1: Student Is Not Recommended for ESY.

Based on available data, the IEP team agrees that it is not likely that the student will experience significant or substantial regression, or that there aren’t any other factors that indicate a need for ESY services.

Documentation must be provided using formal and informal assessment data to support professional judgment.

Option 2: Student Is Recommended for ESY.

Based on available data, the IEP team agrees that it is likely that the student will experience significant or substantial regression or that there are other factors that document a need for ESY services.

Documentation must be provided using formal and informal assessment data to support the IEP team’s determination of need for ESY services.


Reminders

Reminders

ESY determination should NOT be made prior to the end of the first marking period, but MUST be made no later than the first week of April whenever possible.
