ESY 2021 Program Information

2022 program information in progress

Extended School Year (ESY) dates are tentatively set for the June 13 – July 21 for the Summer of 2022. ESY will be delivered in-person at Maine East High School. Instructional hours will be from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and there will be no sessions on Fridays along with Monday, July 4th. 

ESY is defined as special education and related services provided to a child with a disability beyond the normal school year of the public agency following the child’s IEP and at no cost to the child’s parents (ISBE).  ESY services must be provided only if the student’s IEP team, on an individualized basis and in accordance with the district’s IEP procedures, determines that ESY services are
necessary to ensure FAPE. As with all IEP decisions, the final determination of the nature, frequency, and duration of services that will be provided must be individually determined
based on the needs of the student in accordance with 34 CFR 300.106 and 23 IAC 226.230(a)(4).

The Maine 207 ESY staff will include Special Education Teachers, Teacher Assistants, Speech-Language Pathologists, Psychologists, Occupational therapists, Physical Therapists, and other related service personnel. To participate in ESY, a student’s ‘active IEP’ must indicate a need for ESY services determined by their IEP team.
