ESY services are only provided to eligible students as determined by the IEP team.

    Parents will receive a confirmation email regarding the IEP team decision for ESY 2020 by May 6.  If your child’s IEP provides for ESY services, please click on the link to complete the registration form and indicate if your child will or will not attend virtual ESY.  

     

    Current IEP team members will begin to develop an ESY Remote Learning Individualized Student Plan for eligible students once we have received the registration.  As summer grows closer, ESY staff will continue to complete the ESY Remote Learning Individualized Student Plan.

     

    During ESY, students will be provided learning activities specific to goals that IEP teams/case managers have indicated are most important for ESY.  Minutes of engagement for remote instruction will not exceed ISBE’s maximum engagement recommendations but will be determined based on the goals/skills that will be addressed during ESY per the IEP. 

     

    ESY Teachers will contact parents/students the first week in June to share information regarding the electronic platforms and educational programs that will be used.  They will also start to schedule Zoom meetings for groups of students.  It will be the expectation that students meet virtually (via Zoom) with ESY staff a minimum of 2 times each week.

     

    Related Services: Therapists that will be providing services during ESY will work with teachers as needed and create schedules for therapy activities.  Therapists will provide targeted therapy activities and may meet virtually with students.
