NOTICE TO PARENTS OF STUDENT WITH DISABILITIES CONCERNING EXTENDED SCHOOL YEAR SERVICES

Jackson County Schools, in accordance with state and federal regulations, operates an Extended School Year Program (ESY) for students with disabilities who require special education and related services in excess of the regular school year to maintain identifies critical skills. The ESY program is conducted during the summer months and is staffed by personnel trained to deliver appropriate special education and related services.

The IEP team must review available documentation to determine that the student exhibits, or may exhibit:

1.) Significant regressions during an interruption of educational programming.
2.) A limited ability to recoup or relearn skills once programming has resumed; and
3.) Regression/recoupment problems that interfere with the maintenance of identified critical skills as described in the current IEP.

Parents of children whose current IEPs include extended school year services will be contacted by mail regarding the 2018 ESY program. Any parent/legal guardian of a child whose current IEP does not include documentation of continued services, but believes that the child demonstrates a regression/recoupment problem, should contact the child's teacher or principal to arrange for a meeting to discuss the potential need for extended school year services. For further information, please call (304) 372-7309.
