ESY Summer Contact:

ESY services are provided during the summer for eligible special education students to help them maintain skills that are related to their Individual Education Plan (IEP) goals and objectives.  Regression and recoupment are factors used to determine if a student is eligible for ESY services. ESY services are not the same as summer school.

What are regression and recoupment?

Regression means that after a school break, a student loses more skills than would be expected of most students.

Recoupment means that after a school break, a student takes significantly longer to relearn skills than is expected of most students.

Extended School Year Services are not:
The same as summer school. 
To provide extra educational services - ones that would not otherwise be put on the IEP.
To increase the student's skill level from what it was at the end of the school year.
To teach new or different skills.
To provide families summer activities for their children.
To assist families with child care needs.
Services provided because it would be "good" or "nice" for the student.
