ESY 2005-2006
NUTS AND BOLTS
Extended School Year 2006





5 weeks - June 12 - July 13
Closed July 4 (July 3?)
Monday - Thursday
9:00 am -12:00 noon
Location – Ask Supervisor
2
The committee reviews data of
goals/objectives and
determines if ESY services are
required as part of the
student’s Free and Appropriate
Public Education.
3
Are ESY services required?
(not, will the student benefit?)
4
The committee considers the individual needs of
the student and a multiplicity of variables,
including such factors as:







Progress and/or regression which may limit the
student’s ability to achieve goals/objectives.
Relative importance of the IEP goals at issue
Emerging skills
The age and/or severity of the disability
Delays or interruptions in services during the
school year
Related services
Contents of any applicable transition plans
5
The intent of ESY is to prevent
significant regression which
compromises the student’s ability
to make meaningful progress on
the IEP, therefore, not providing
the student with FAPE. ESY is not
provided to guarantee mastery of
goals/objectives.
6
The committee should not select
objectives that would be simply
good for the child to continue to
work on during the summer.
Data collection on old
goals/objectives will determine
whether the student requires ESY.
7
Services are individualized
within a framework.
8
If ESY services are required…




Determine the IEP objective(s) which
require ESY
Determine the type of ESY service(s)
required i.e. academic, speech/language,
OT
Determine the amount/duration of
service(s) for addressing ESY objective(s)
Determine dates, location, transportation
9
Low incidence students (SID/PID,
MOID, VI/DHH) and/or students who
have difficulty transitioning (Autism,
SDD, medically fragile)


Suggested amount of service is 3 hours per
day.
Individualize services by adjusting the number
of days per week. Some students may only
attend one day per week.
10
Students Who Need
Academic Support

Consider options for services




General education summer school programs
Work packets provided by the teacher to be
completed at home
Computerized programs/software/web sites
Summer reading lists
11
ESY Objectives



Should not be new objectives
Must be probed in March so the ESY
teacher knows the level of performance
Beware of objectives that are too vague or
too broad and subject to misinterpretation.
Include work samples and clear description
of probe process.
12
Inappropriate ESY Scenarios




Students who do not complete homework
assignments during the school year
Students who need to organize their
notebooks
Students who do not complete long-term
projects
Students who need to improve reading
fluency
13
Extended School Year is Not




Summer School - Summer Camp
A time to get a jump start on the
upcoming year by addressing new goals
and objectives
Something “nice” that we do for our
students
One-to-one tutoring
14
Before the IEP meeting, the IEP
coordinator should...





Gather and prepare the data
Talk to Related Support Personnel and SLP
Discuss with Supervisor/Lead Teacher
Know whether the recommendation will be
for/against ESY services and the rationale
Schedule the meeting prior to March 24 so
paperwork can be submitted by March 31.
15
ESY is a part of the IEP Process

All teachers and related service providers
must participate in ESY discussion.
(The meeting cannot be held with just the
parent and Special Education teacher
during conference week.)

All ESY services must be reflected in the
IEP.
16
ESY should be addressed for
all students prior to March
24, 2006. If necessary,
hold an addendum.

the ESY
discussion.
The discussion must

Then,
Don’t do any more to the draft
GoalView IEP prior to the meeting.
21
During the IEP meeting, the IEP
coordinator should...



Summarize the ESY factors - do not read the
paragraph or discuss each item individually.
If data does not support the need for ESY, move
to next topic - State Testing
If documentation supports the need for ESY,



specify the applicable objective(s)
Based on those “flagged” objective(s), determine the
required ESY service
Include secondary and related support services
22
During the IEP meeting…



Determine whether the child requires
transportation. If so, complete the
transportation form at the meeting.
Secure a commitment from the parent
Have parent complete Emergency
Information form
23
Get commitment from parent!
(ESY is an expensive program)


For Transportation
If ESY is recommended but parent declines,
-designate ESY objectives, services, etc. as if
child will be attending
-indicate “Yes” in “ESY Required” check box
-indicate in minutes that parent declines
24
After the IEP, the IEP
coordinator should...


Immediately notify the supervisor that ESY
has been agreed upon
Prepare and submit ESY paperwork by
March 31st
25
Note how

See next slide for continuation…
26
Continuation of ESY Program Summary
This child also
received
speech during
ESY. Note:
speech is not
an automatic
service for
those who
attend ESY
facility-based
program.
27
This is what part of the
ESY IEP section looks
like once ESY objectives
are flagged:
28
ESY Services Summary




Complete student demographics – letters
are sent to parents using this address
List required services
Does the child require any type of
specialized equipment?
Will staff require training in health care
procedures or specialized equipment?
29
ESY Data Collection Form



ESY objectives need to be an extension of
IEP objectives from 2005-2006 IEP.
ESY objectives are determined at the IEP
meeting
Include probe from March 16th and attach
GoalView March Progress Report
30
More ESY Paperwork


Attach copy of Emergency Information
Attach transportation form if
transportation is required


Do not send Transportation Form to the
Transportation Dept.
Use designated ESY 2006 Transportation
Form
31
Before submitting the paperwork






Make sure that no information is missing
Make sure the red-ink IEP matches the GV final
copy
Make sure the information on the ESY Services
Summary/Data Collection form matches the IEP
Make sure ESY objective(s) matches those
designated at the IEP meeting
Make sure any applicable paperwork from
related service staff is attached
Make sure present level of performance is
recorded
32
After the IEP…


Gather specialized instructional materials i.e.
Wilson Reading, PECS, slant boards, laptop
loaded with specialized programs, communication
devices. The ESY teachers will gather materials
for Reading Mastery, Corrective Reading,
Academy of Reading, Touch Math as well as
instructional materials available to general
education students.
Gather work samples, student work books, etc.,
that clearly communicate how the objectives
were addressed during the school year. ESY
teachers need a starting point and need to know
how the task was probed during the school year.
33
ESY Pitfalls





The ESY section of the IEP needs to match the
ESY Services Summary .
ESY may not be an appropriate avenue to
address socialization because there is not a
general education population of students
attending ESY.
Too many objectives to be addressed for the
amount of time allotted
Objectives not appropriate for ESY setting
Late paperwork creates major logistical
problems
