Extended School Year (ESY) Services Certification

The Extended School Year (ESY) Services Policy establishes an annual LEA certification process for ESY-related transportation services and nonpublic ESY services.  The certification process requires LEAs to submit student-level data that allows local public schools and nonpublic programs to adequately prepare for ESY programming and staffing, while also permitting the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) to anticipate ESY-related state-level expenses. 
The certification process also provides assurance of LEA involvement in Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team decisions regarding ESY.  IEP Teams must analyze student-level progress monitoring data using the state-level eligibility framework to make appropriate individualized ESY determinations for every student with an IEP, and document and certify the decisions in the Special Education Data System (SEDS) and the Transportation Online Tool for Education (TOTE).
