This technical assistance bulletin explains extended school year (ESY) services for students with disabilities. It begins by discussing federal regulations that require schools to ensure that ESY services are available as necessary to provide free, appropriate public education to students with disabilities, that require ESY services to be provided only if a child's Individualized Education Program team determines that the services are necessary, and that schools do not limit ESY services to particular categories of disability or unilaterally limit the type, amount, or duration of those services. Information is then provided in the following areas: (1) eligibility for ESY services; (2) how a student is determined to be eligible; (3) how ESY decisions should be documented; (4) how least restrictive environment requirements should be addressed during ESY; (5) the requirements for ESY transportation; (6) the school's responsibility to provide ESY services even if the parents choose not to make their child available to receive such services; (7) district policies on ESY; (8) ESY services for preschool students transitioning from early intervention services; and (9) summer school attendance of students with disabilities.
