Long past are the days of cookie-cutter ESY programs. This presentation will go beyond basic legal elements of ESY and explore how best practices and innovation are meeting student’s needs outside the regular school year. Attorney Geneva Jones will explore related services, special circumstances, and other factors that IEP teams must consider in determining if a student requires ESY and what type of ESY program will meet the student’s needs. With a focus on the law, Geneva will encourage you to develop innovative ESY programming to accommodate a student’s unique needs in an appropriate learning environment.
