Preventing the Summer Slide: How ESY Services Can Help Your Child Thrive

Updated: Mar 11

Hey there! Have you heard of Extended School Year (ESY) services? They are specialized educational supports for students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP), and they're pretty awesome! ESY services provide additional learning support to help students make meaningful progress in their overall academic and social-emotional development.

What are Extended School Year (ESY) Services?

These services can be delivered outside of the traditional school year, such as during summer months or holidays. They may include instruction, therapy, assessments, and other activities tailored to the student’s needs. By participating in ESY services, students can maintain their skills and even acquire new ones during breaks from traditional instruction.
