IEPs & the Extended School Year @ LINKS Mat Su Parent Resource Center
Feb 23 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

IEP teams start making decisions about Extended School Year Services (ESY) in February, but they often don’t have enough information to clearly show the need for summer education.  Start planning now for next year’s ESY and be ready with your strongest position.

  • Learn what data you will need in February for getting appropriate services next summer
  • Clarify which of the three criteria your student most convincingly satisfies
  • Practice countering the most common justifications schools have for finding that a student doesn’t need ESY  

We will also discuss some ESY services that are “outside the box” of the usual ESY offering of three mornings each week in class, and how they were obtained.
