Title:      Extended School Year 101:  What It Is and What It Isn’t

Topic: Extended school year or “ESY” services are supports for eligible students that are familiar in name, but frequently misunderstood by both parents and school districts alike.  This program will explore the various aspects of ESY, including its purpose, who qualifies and why, what appropriate ESY services look like, and some pitfalls to avoid.
