1 Extended School Year (ESY): Standards Adapted from Region IV Presentation August 28, Slides

2 Slide 2 of 17 Question The following standards have been adopted for the determination of ESY services with the exception of: 1.The Nature or Severity of the disability. 2.A serious potential for regression of skills beyond a reasonable period of recoupment. 3.Student presents with a severe disability. 4.Consideration of the Critical Stages or Areas of Learning.

3 Slide 3 of 17 Specifically, a student may be determined eligible for ESY service(s) due to: 1.a serious potential for regression of skills beyond a reasonable period of recoupment; or 2.the nature or severity of the disability; or 3.critical stages or areas of learning. If there is no goal area(s) of concern, service(s) is/are not needed for a FAPE. Extended School Year Standards

4 Slide 4 of 17 Regression & Recoupment - Definition Regression: inability of a student to maintain acquired skill in an identified goal area of concern. Recoupment: capacity to recover those skills that have regressed to a level demonstrated prior to the break in instruction. If there is no goal area(s) of concern, service(s) is/are not needed for a FAPE.

5 Slide 5 of 17 Regression / Recoupment Determination for ESY services starts with data to substantiate concern for serious regression of skills beyond a reasonable period of recoupment. This regression / recoupment concern must be aligned to existing IEP goal(s). Students who can recoup those skills with re-teaching in a reasonable amount of time, are not eligible for ESY service(s).

6 Slide 6 of 17 A student with a disability who requires a highly structured environment or consistent programming without substantial breaks in service(s) in order to make progress in the identified goal area(s) of concern. Nature or Severity – Definition If there is no goal area(s) of concern, service(s) is/are not needed for a FAPE.

7 Slide 7 of 17 Nature or Severity Determination for ESY services starts with data to substantiate the need to provide service(s) in the identified goal area(s) of concern during breaks in the school year.

8 Slide 8 of 17 Critical stage in learning: learning must occur without delay and that learning the skill(s) in the identified goal area(s) of concern will enhance the student’s ability to function independently. Critical area of learning: an area of instruction that is essential to the student’s development in achieving self-sufficiency and independence. Critical Stage or Area of Learning - Definition If there is no goal area(s) of concern, service(s) is/are not needed for a FAPE.

9 Slide 9 of 17 Determination for ESY services starts with data to indicate that failure to provide service(s) in the identified goal area(s) of concern beyond the normal school year will severely limit the student’s capacity to acquire essential skills. Critical Stage or Area of Learning

10 Slide 10 of 17 Question Across all 3 standards, the determination of ESY services is based on: A.The student’s disability. B.The student’s existing annual goal(s). C.The student’s Behavior Intervention Plan. D.The student’s attendance record.

11 Slide 11 of 17 Thinking it through – taking information into process … ESY services are based on an identified need addressed in an (existing) annual goal. ESY services must be considered for every student with a disability at each IEP Team meeting. ESY services must be determined individually.

12 Slide 12 of 17 S E R V I C E S

13 Slide 13 of 17 Thinking it through… What about Related Services? Related Services must be considered along with instructional programming when developing a plan for ESY service(s).

14 Slide 14 of 17 Thinking it through… What about Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)? Requirements for ESY service(s) are not identical to the LRE requirements for the regular school year. –A district is not required to create new programs. –ESY service(s) may be provided in a non-educational setting.

15 Slide 15 of 17 Thinking it through… ESY service(s) are not intended to duplicate all service(s) provided during the traditional school year. ESY service(s) are only for those annual goals identified as areas of concern. New annual goals are not developed for ESY service(s).

16 Slide 16 of 17 Thinking it through… Consideration of ESY services occurs at an IEP Team meeting. ESY services are to be offered with sufficient time to make plans for delivery and to provide an opportunity for IEP team members to resolve disputes (gather additional information, convene a new IEP, pursue mediation, file a state complaint, file a due process hearing complaint) prior to the break in service(s).

17 Slide 17 of 17 Thank you for completing the Standards Section. Please proceed to the Role of IEP Team.
